Outfielder Jim Edmonds agreed to a minor-league contract two weeks ago to return to the St. Louis Cardinals.

But the 40-year-old has decided to retire because of an Achilles tendon injury suffered late last season.

Edmonds ended last season with the Cincinnati Reds but missed the playoffs when he suffered the tendon injury while circling the bases on a home run.

He ends a 17-year career with .393 homers with California/Anaheim Angels, St. Louis, San Diego, the Cubs, Milwaukee and Cincinnati.

Reds catch break with Jim Edmonds; no Achilles tear


The Cincinnati Reds have caught a break with veteran outfielder/first baseman Jim Edmonds, a key member on their bench.

The 40-year-old outfielder injured his right leg on Tuesday night running the bases after hitting a home run and had to leave the game against Milwaukee.

There was a concern that Edmonds might have torn his Achilles’ tendon. But the Reds management said on Wednesday that tests show there is no tear. Edmonds has to wear a boot for a couple of days to let the injury heal.

Volquez can’t get out of 1st inning; Giants steamroll Reds, 11-2

The San Francisco Giants had trouble scoring runs in St. Louis this past weekend. However, home cooking might’ve been what the doctor ordered.

Starting pitcher Matt Cain, winless in his last three starts, was given early run support, while Andres Torres clubbed a two-run homer and San Francisco dominated the Reds, 11-2.

The Reds also lost starting outfielders Jim Edmonds and Laynce Nix to injuries.

Aubrey Huff added a solo homer while leading off the eighth inning. Huff, Pat Burrell and Freddy Sanchez all doubled in runs in the Giants’ five-run outburst in the first inning to knock Edinson Volquez (3-2) out of the game after two-thirds of an inning. It was the shortest start of his career.

Sanchez had a season-high four hits.

Cain, who evened his record at 10-10, retired the final 14 batters he faced and struck out the side in order in the seventh. He gave up two runs on five hits in eight innings, struck out seven and walked one. He threw a season-high 125 pitches.

San Francisco batted around in the first inning and Volquez was removed by manager Dusty Baker after he walked Andres Torres for the second time in the inning on his 39th pitch. Jordan Smith came on in relief and struck out Buster Posey.

The NL Central leaders, the Reds had won eight of nine and 12 of 16 games coming into AT& T Park but were cooled off by Matt Cain, who usually pitches well against them. Their lead in the division is down to 2 1/2 games as St. Louis won at Pittsburgh on Monday night.
