According to MLB.com, on Friday, the Pads released Jim Edmunds. An excerpt is below:
"It's just not happening for him statistically," Padres manager Bud Black said Thursday before a 5-4 loss to the Braves ended a 2-7 road trip, leaving the reeling Padres with a 12-23 record and in last place in the National League West.
Edmonds, 37, was hitting just .178 with 24 strikeouts in 90 at-bats. He had just six hits in his last 55 at-bats. He wasn't in the starting lineup on Thursday in Atlanta, but appeared in the game as part of a double-switch, grounding out in his only at-bat.
