2011 David Riske returned from Tommy John surgery to toss a few dozen nondescript relief innings before earning his release, ending his Brewers tenure with a 5.40 ERA and 66 2/3 innings in the books, and $13 million in his pocket. Not that Riske is to blameóthe Brewers didnít put a gun to his head, after all, and signing middle relievers to long-term deals is always, well, risky.
2010 Riske has suffered through a series of elbow problems since signing a three-year, $13 million contract with the Brewers prior to the 2008 season, culminating in Tommy John surgery last June that will keep him shelved until this summer at the least. At the time of the deal, Riske was that rarest of birds, a consistently effective middle reliever, which made him seem a reasonable addition for a contending club, but his story is a reminder that every hurler is always one pitch away from injury, and very few relievers are worth a three-year deal. Riske is unlikely to provide much value this season if he gets back on the field at all, and come fall heíll be looking for another job at a much lower salary.
2009 And the Milwaukee chapterís winner for groan-inducing pun of the year is the three-year, $13 million deal given to this reliever last winter: a Riske contract. Five straight seasons with ERAs under 4.00 made him seem like a fairly safe bet at the time, but Riske struggled with elbow woes, first serving a month-long DL stint due to a hyperextension and and then being shut down in early September to remove a bone spur. The bum elbow compromised his command and velocity, so one shouldnít read too much into his declining peripherals beyond the fact that his numbers are generally all over the place anyway. He should be ready to resume his role as an effective set-up man.
2008 Riske is a rare breed: a consistent middle reliever. He's had an ERA under 4.00 for five straight years and, while last year's 2.45 ERA was an anomaly, he should continue to provide above-average performance. That makes it all the more puzzling that the Royals agreed to put a clause in his contract that turned his 2008 season into a player option when Riske appeared in his 60th game in 2007. Handed that decision, Riske put himself back on the market, as well he should have given the size of his new deal with the Brewers. Young players frequently give teams a club option in exchange for guaranteed financial security in the years before free agency, but it's unclear what benefits teams get when the shoe is on the other foot.
2007 Riske`s fastball is no longer overpowering, and he`s regressed into a defensive style of pitching that involves working the inside portion of the plate and hoping that hitters won`t tee off on anything. That worked well enough in 2006, but between the decline in his strikeout rate in 2005, the decline in his command in 2006, and his lack of a breaking ball, he doesn`t have much left to work with.
2006 David Riske is one of the most aptly named pitchers in baseball history. His rate stats fluctuate wildly from month to month and year to year. The only detectible trends in Riske`s numbers: his strikeout rate has steadily declined over the past three seasons, while his home run rate has headed in the other direction. As he exits his peak years, David will become even Riske-er.
2005 In his three seasons as a bullpen regular, Riske has been everywhere between Bob Tewksbury and Mitch Williams on the control meter, passing 6.1, 2.4, and 4.8 batters per nine. If you're a physician and you have a pill that will solve this problem, there's likely a job waiting for you in Cleveland. The Indians have toyed with the idea of making Riske a closer at times, but because he's yet another member of their band who is prolific in the flyball department, he'll always be vulnerable to the home runónot ideal for a fellow who has to protect one-run leads (then again, we all know that closers are rarely called upon to protect one-run leads, don't we?). Keep an eye on that home-run rate, which is starting to creep into dangerous territory.
2003 Riske went to Lindbergh High School, which was the next high school over from mine. Heís one of the only success stories from our area, the others being two Kentridge Class of 1992 alumni: Ryan Geithman, who started Snowblind Studios and put out the hit video game "Baldurís Gate: Dark Alliance," and Evan Stoner, who placed second on Jeopardy! Riskeís also one of the only pitchers to make a successful return to pre-injury effectiveness from a torn labrum, which must give hope to most of the Mariners farm system.

Riske has one astoundingly good pitch, that fastball that seems to accelerate mid-flight. Riske is one of the few relievers worth backing the tape up to see again. Attempts to give him a plus secondary pitch to set the fastball up havenít worked. If he manages it, though, heíll be a top-flight reliever. As it stands, heís still good. There are worse things than having one amazing pitch: ask Mariano Rivera.
2002 Riske missed almost all of 2000 with a shoulder injury. Like Ryan Drese, he came back to perform about as well as he had before. The performances of Riske and Danys Baez meant that the Indians were essentially unharmed by their decision to trade Steve Reed and Steve Karsay for...
2001 David Riske missed 2000 with what was initially termed a back injury but turned out to be a shoulder injury. The Indians are loaded with relievers who have had good stretches. J.D. Brammer has a great curve and no control. Padilla has great heat and no control. DePaula has the best stuff but got hurt. Riske had the best control before he got hurt. All of them will probably show up in Cleveland at some point in 2001.
2000 Most solid minor-league relievers arenít really prospects, but Riske could be a rare exception. Heís got a low-90s fastball, a solid forkball and a tumbling curve he uses to surprise people once in a while. Top it off with a deceptive three-quarters delivery that makes all of his pitches more effective, and youíve got a guy who can pitch.
