Tavarez Designated for Assignment

19 06 2008

Looks like Freddy Krueger is going to have to haunt elsewhere. From the JS Online Brewers Blog (which I still hate, but will link to grudgingly):

The Brewers made room on their roster today to activate reliever David Riske from the DL by designating reliever Julian Tavarez for assignment.

The Brewers signed Tavarez a few weeks ago to a minimum-salary contract after he was released by Boston but he did not impress club officials in his seven relief outings. Tavarez was 0-1 with a 8.59 ERA, allowing 13 hits, five walks and 10 runs (seven earned) in 7 1/3 innings.

The dumping of Tavarez shows that the Brewers have been impressed with the showing of rookie relieves Mark DiFelice and Tim Dillard.

Riske will be available to pitch in the game today against Toronto.

Good decision, it was an easy choice, and Dillard and DiFilece have earned their spots.
