End of road? Reds release Wilson

CINCINNATI -- Paul Wilson was released Thursday by the
Cincinnati Reds, another setback as he tries to come back from
shoulder surgery.

Wilson, a 34-year-old-right-hander, was the Reds' Opening Day
starter two years ago, coming off an 11-6 record in 2004. He was
1-5 with a 7.77 ERA in 2005 before surgery.

He had only four minor league appearances last year and had been
ineffective in most of his appearances this spring training.

The No. 1 overall pick by the Mets in the 1994 amateur raft, Wilson has
gone 40-58 with a 4.86 ERA in his major league career.
