Schlitter was released by the Rockies, Matt Eddy of Baseball America reports.

Schlitter spent the entire season at Triple-A Albuquerque, and although he didn't pitch badly by any means, the Rockies have too many prospects coming through their system to warrant having a 30-year-old clogging up their farm system. The right-hander does have some major league experience (even if none of it really went well), so he could garner some interest as a veteran middle-relief option with some teams.
