Spring Training: In a surprising move, the Phillies have released Geoff Jenkins.

Earlier this afternoon, in a surprising move, the Phillies have outright released veteran outfielder Geoff Jenkins. In eleven seasons, ten of which were spent playing for the Milwaukee Brewers, in 1349 games, Jenkins went 1293 for 4700 for a career batting average of .275, hitting 303 doubles, 22 triples and 221 home runs, while knocking in 733 rbis as he scored 688 runs. In his one season playing for the World Champs, he appeared in 115 games, going 72 for 293 for a .246 average, with sixteen doubles and nine home runs, knocking in 29 rbis while he scored only 27 runs.

I hope that there’s a method to their madness cause I just am not getting the release of Jenkins unless he no longer fits in their plans. Anyway, I wish Jenkins luck joining another ballclub before Spring Training is over.
