The following is a statement from RHP Jeff Suppan, who was released by the Brewers today:
“I want to thank Mark Attanasio and Doug Melvin for all they have done for my family and me, especially how they handled this situation. I’ve played with a number of organizations, and the Brewers are one of the classiest.
“When I signed in 2007, I was committed to winning, and to this day I still am. Nobody is more disappointed than I am with how things have turned out. I enjoyed my time here in Milwaukee as both a player and a member of the community. As such, I will continue my involvement with Brewers Charities for the remainder of the 2010 season. My commitment to this cause and the people it serves is unwavering.
“I wish the Brewers organization, its fans and especially my teammates all the best.”
