Jay Gibbons Released as Marlins Make Cuts


            The Marlins have released outfielder Jay Gibbons, who is trying to resurrect his career. The Marlins also trimmed its roster by re-assigning several players to minor-league camp. They are right-handed pitcher Michael Wood, catchers Miguel Fermin and Kyle Skipworth, third baseman Matt Dominguez, right-handed reliever Jose Ceda and outfielder Michael Stanton. Also, outfielder Jai Miller was optioned to Triple A New Orleans.

          Gibbons went 2 for 4 and hit a 3-run homer on Thursday against the Mets. But the Marlins obviously felt the 32-year-old outfielder didn't fit into their plans. Gibbons was released by the Orioles last spring despite still being owed close to $12 million on the two remaining years of his contract. Gibbons, who admitted at one time to the use of human growth hormone, was a non-roster invitee for the Marlins this spring after not playing in the majors at all in 2008

Very stupid move. Fredi didnt want him from the start and I really thought he was doing well from watching him last night. One of his outs was a laser to center field. Just a dumb move.
