The Milwaukee Brewers have declined a club option on right-handed reliever David Weathers for next season.

Weathers arrived in Milwaukee in a trade with Cincinnati in August and went 1-3 with a 4.88 ERA the rest of the year.

The Brewers also are weighing a decision on picking up a 2010 option on starter Braden Looper, who went 14-7 with a 5.22 ERA last season.

Looper's 2010 option is for $6.5 million with a $1 million buyout because he pitched more than 180 innings last season. If Milwaukee exercises the option, Looper has the right to decline it but he would forfeit the buyout.
