A's Designate Bradley For Assignment

In a surprising move, the Athletics designated Milton Bradley for assignment today.  The A's will have to trade Bradley and his $4MM contract within ten days or just release him and eat the cost.  Around $2.2MM remains.  He'll become a free agent after the season. 

Bradley is one of the most fragile players in all of baseball, the Kerry Wood of position players.  He spent 2006-07 as an Athletic, hitting .279/.371/.447 in 416 ABs.  Bradley remains a very useful center fielder when he's able to play, so a number of teams should pursue him.  At least at this moment, he is relatively healthy.  The Marlins and Cardinals could have interest.

Athletics Nation isn't sure why Billy Beane made this decision, but trusts his judgment.
