Padres release Vinny Castilla

"Third baseman Vinny Castilla was released by the San Diego Padres on Wednesday, an unpopular move in the clubhouse and one that likely will hasten the NL West leaders' search for a replacement before the trading deadline."


"Although his defense was solid, the 39-year-old Castilla was hitting just .232 with four homers and 23 RBIs."



"Bochy didn't know if Castilla planned to retire. Castilla was informed of the move Tuesday night, and wasn't in the clubhouse Wednesday."
