    A's designate Milton Bradley for assignment

    OAKLAND -- The Oakland Athletics announced today the club has designated outfielder Milton Bradley for assignment and has selected infielder Kevin Melillo from Triple-A Sacramento.

    Bradley is batting .292 with two home runs and seven RBI in 19 games this season. He had three stints on the disabled list due to various injuries. He was most recently placed on the 15-day disabled list retroactive to June 3 with a strained right calf and was activated for Wednesday's game against Cincinnati. Bradley had five stints on the DL in his two seasons with the A's. He missed 51 games due to injury this season, 59 last year, 85 in 2005 and 61 in 2003.

    Originally selected in the fifth round of the 2004 First-Year Player Draft, the 25-year old Melillo was batting .267 with 21 doubles, six triples, seven home runs and 40 RBI in 67 games for Sacramento this season, seeing all of his action at second base. He also had a .465 slugging percentage and a .368 on-base percentage.

    could he help the Reds? Maybe but at this point it wouldn't matter.

    No reason to consider bringing him in, especially with his track record of being hurt.

    Wouldn't surprise me to see the Cardinals grab him.

    If you were to trade Dunn today, Bradley would be a better than average replacement.

    ... only if you can get him on the field.

    I don't think Bradley's attitude issues would do real well on a team on the road to nowhere in the current season.

    I'd rather have the Parker Bros. myself.

    Milton completely trashed the clubhouse after he struck out in his last at bat (after they won). This coupled with his inibility to stay on the field, probably led to his demise...

    No. We should not go after Guillen redux.

    I misread this as the Reds DFAing Milton and felt my heart go a-twitter. It doesn't matter at this point (and probably can't even happen), but it would be a moral victory.
    There is no such thing as a pitching prospect.

    But he has that fire everyone says this team lacks.
