The Cardinals have traded oft-injured and aging center fielder Jim Edmonds to the Padres, who had been in negotiations to bring back free-agent center fielder Mike Cameron.
Cameron might seem like an attractive option for Rangers general manager Jon Daniels, who said he would still like to add to the outfield this off-season to go with the recently signed Milton Bradley. Cameron has played in the AL West (Seattle), he's a former Gold Glove winner, and he can hit for power.
But he also is a strikeout machine who will miss the first 25 games of the season while serving a suspension for using a banned substance. The soon-to-be 35-year-old also wants more than a one-year contract, something the Rangers have said they would be hesitant to do this off-season.
Cameron will play somehwere in 2008, but for now it looks like he won't be in Arlington.
