Angels released LHP Mitch Stetter.

Stetter posted a 4.01 ERA, 1.46 WHIP and 26/19 K/BB ratio over 24 2/3 innings at Triple-A Salt Lake. As a lefty that can throw in the mid-90s, Stetter will get another shot, but he's never been able to throw strikes consistently.

Mitch Stetter has been cleared to throw Friday after missing the last three and a half weeks with a bulging disc in his lower back.

Assuming he doesn't have any setbacks, the injury shouldn't hurt his chances at winning an Opening Day bullpen spot. Stetter is in camp as a non-roster invitee after posting a 2.67 ERA while striking out 40 over 30 1/3 innings between Double- and Triple-A in 2012.

Rangers signed LHP Mitch Stetter to a minor league contract.

The deal includes a spring training invite. Stetter, 31, posted a 5.14 ERA over 16 relief appearances with the Brewers last season before undergoing hip surgery in August. The southpaw has struggled with his command in the majors and is likely a longshot to make the Rangers' Opening Day roster.

Mitch Stetter has elected free agency.

Stetter was outrighted off the Brewers' 40-man roster last month. The 30-year-old southpaw posted a 5.14 ERA over 16 appearances with the big club this season, but didn't throw another pitch after undergoing hip surgery in August.

Brewers activated LHP Mitch Stetter from the 60-day disabled list.

Stetter made a handful of appearances with the Brewers during the first half of the season, but didn't throw another pitch after undergoing hip surgery in August. The 30-year-old left-hander is arbitration-eligible for the first time this winter and is a possibility to be non-tendered.

Brewers transferred LHP Mitch Stetter from the 15-day to the 60-day disabled list.

Stetter will soon undergo surgery on his left hip soon. Though it's unclear when he how long it will take for him to recover, it's certainly possible his season is over.

Mitch Stetter will soon undergo surgery on his left hip.

Stetter came to the decision after receiving a second opinion recently. It's not clear at this point how long he'll be sidelined, be it would be surprising if he makes a contribution later this year.
Wed, Jul 27, 2011 07:44:00 PM

Brewers manager Ron Roenicke said Mitch Stetter is "still having issues" with a left hip injury.

Stetter, who has been sidelined since mid-May, left a minor league rehab assignment with Triple-A Nashville to visit with Brewers head physician William Raasch in Milwaukee. It's possible that the southpaw could require surgery. The Brewers are without any left-handed pitchers in their bullpen at the moment, so they could be on the market for some help before the trade deadline.

Brewers manager Ron Roenicke said Mitch Stetter (hip) is "getting better finally."

Although the left-hander is progressing, Roenicke offered a pretty vague description of Stetter's upcoming rehab. "Stetter's getting better finally," Roenicke said. "He's kind of progressing, and he'll just kind of continue to go on until that thing's gone, then he'll start getting on the mound and throwing."

Stetter, a lefty specialist, has posted a 5.14 ERA in 14 relief appearances this season for the Brewers. The severity of his hip injury is not yet known.
