Tanyon Sturtze was released by the Atlanta Braves today. He was 0-6 with a 9.53 ERA in 12 minor league games. In 11.1 innings, he allowed 17 hits and 12 walks.
Sturtze, 36, was trying to make a comeback from the extensive shoulder surgery he had last May 23 when he was with the Yankees. He was with the Yankees for parts of three seasons and appeared in 110 games.
Sturtze’s $750,000 contract guaranteed him a $350,000 bonus if he was on the 25-man roster for one day.
