I missed this Sunday. Former Biscuits pitcher Jeff Ridgway has been released by the Atlanta Braves.
The left-hander missed the last month with inflammation in his pitching elbow. He had bone chips removed from the same elbow last year.
Ridgway went to Atlanta in a January 2008 trade that brought major-league infielder Willy Aybar and minor-leaguer Chase Fontaine to the Rays. Fontaine was released last week by Tampa Bay, but Aybar is still swinging in the majors.
I think we can call that trade in favor of the Rays.
