Edmonds Released By Padres

FRIDAY: The speculation was accurate; Edmonds will be released today.

THURSDAY: Tim Sullivan of the San Diego Union-Tribune reads between the lines and believes Jim Edmonds' time is up with the Padres.  The 37 year-old center fielder is hitting just .180/.267/.236 in 102 plate appearances.  His defense isn't passing muster, either.

Sullivan figures Edmonds will be released soon, or perhaps the Padres will buy him some time with a DL stint.  They'd have to swallow $4.75MM to sever ties.  Cutting veteran dead weight seems in vogue this year.
