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.
