DETROIT (AP) -- The Detroit Tigers have released left-handed reliever Tim Byrdak.
The team hoped Byrdak would help plug a hole in its bullpen this season, but he has struggled this spring.
Byrdak posted an 0-1 record and allowed 15 runs and 21 hits in 10 innings.
He pitched to five batters in the ninth inning of Detroit's 10-9 win over Houston on Tuesday, walking four and allowing one hit. His spring ERA was 13.50.
Byrdak started the 2007 season with Triple A Toledo before joining the Tigers bullpen on May 14.
He was released on Wednesday.
