Where Will Ausmus Go?

Long time Astros catcher Brad Ausmus told reporters he will not be back next season, but said he isn't retired. Ausmus, who is hitting .230 with 1 HR in 65 games this season, lives in the San Diego area. However, the Padres have several catchers and do not need an aging catcher who no longer is an offensive threat or a solid defenseman. The Dodgers and Angels are also possiblities, but both teams are supplied with catchers and do not need Ausmus.

He might need to sign a minor league contract and prove himself, or else his career is done.
