ST. LOUIS - The St. Louis Cardinals announced today that second baseman Adam Kennedy has been given his unconditional release. The team has requested waivers on Kennedy that will expire on Wednesday, at which time he will become an unrestricted free agent.

"We have exhausted all trade possibilities for Adam, and have decided that it was within both the club and the player's best interests to give Adam his unconditional release," stated Cardinals' Vice President/General Manager John Mozeliak. "As stated last year, it has been our intention - at Adam's request - to try and seek a trade. As we move forward, we feel that it is best to try and fill the second base position with other players from within our organization."

Among the infield candidates reporting to Jupiter, Fla. next week for the start of Spring Training are Brendan Ryan, Brian Barden, Joe Thurston, Jarrett Hoffpauir and Tyler Greene, along with outfielder Skip Schumaker, who will also be given an opportunity to play second base.
