Riske Out For Season

Is that David Riske trying to steal the headlines on the day Dale Sveum is set to make his MLB managing debut? Why yes, it is! Riske is making news today because he's done for the season, as he's undergoing surgery to remove a bone spur from his elbow. The surgery is set for sometime next week.

In 45 appearances this season, Riske was 1-2 with a 5.31 ERA. He's in the first year of a three-year, $13 million contract, but just hasn't been the pitcher the Brewers thought he would be this season. Which is odd, because he's been the exact pitcher us fans knew he would be. High expectations, high contracts, mediocre results. Ladies and gentlemen, your 2008 Milwaukee Brewers bullpen!
