Release day

Adam McCalvy has the whole list of 15 Milwaukee Brewers Minor Leaguers who were released on Tuesday at his post here.

The eight former Rattlers on that list are below.  The seasons played with the Rattlers are in parenthesis.

RHP Cody Adams (’09)
INF Steve Braun (’09)
LHP Matt Costello (’10)
INF Connor Lind (’10)
OF Erik Miller (’09, ’10)
RHP Andrew Sauter (’10)
OF Brandon Sizemore (’10)
LHP Caleb Thielbar (’10)

Also on Tuesday, the Mariners designated catcher Rob Johnson (’05) for assignment.

The M’s have 10 days to trade, release or outright Johnson, 28, to the minors. He is a guy pitchers love throwing to, but hit just .191 last year in 61 games following an offseason in which he had three surgeries. Two were to repair torn labrums in his left and right hip, the other on his left wrist. He finished the year in Tacoma, hitting .297 in 19 games. Johnson also had nine passed balls, second-most in the majors.
