Jason Bartlett SS MIN Mar 19 '78

John Maffei of the North County Times writes that Jason Bartlett "has likely played his last game for the Padres."

Bartlett, who is out with a strained right knee, was transferred to the 60-day disabled list Thursday and can't return until mid-July. The Padres might cut him loose before then, though, as they're wanting to go younger at shortstop. Bartlett is making $5.5 million this season, and the Padres have a $5.5 million option on him for 2013 that contains a $1.5 million buyout.
