Cliff Floyd could join Padres on Saturday

Friday May 29, 2009

In his Twitter post this afternoon, Corey Brock of MLB.com says that Cliff Floyd has joined the team in Denver and if all goes well in BP and fielding practice, he will be activated for Saturday’s game.

Floyd was sidelined to start the season with a shoulder injury and then suffered through fluid and pain on his knee.

Floyd would provide much needed power off the bench. Floyd is a defensive liability at this points o don’t expect him to get much time in the field, but he is still one of the better left handed power bats in the NL off the bench so he could prove very valuable in interleague and as a pinch hitter.

I believe that if he does well over the next month as a DH and pinch hitter that the Padres will trade him as the deadline grows nearer.

  1. Its too bad the Pads didn't trade Cliffie for Gwynn. But the tub was on the dl still.

    I liked Gerut alot better than Floyd and I think Gerut has as much power anyway.

    At least Gerut can play good defense.
