SAN ANGELO , Texas (AP) — Doc Edwards, a major league catcher who went on to manage the Cleveland Indians for three seasons in the 1980s, has died. He was 81.His death in San Angelo was announced by his family through longtime friends. Other details were not disclosed.Edwards spent more than a half century in baseball. He succeeded Pat Corrales as manager of Cleveland, where in 1962 he began his major league career as a player. He managed the Indians for the 1987-89 seasons, finishing with a record of 173-207. Earlier, he was a coach for Cleveland Josh Reddick Jersey , as well as Philadelphia and the New York Mets.He played five years in the big leagues, mostly with Cleveland and Kansas City. He also played for the New York Yankees and Phillies. He batted .238 for his career, with 15 home runs and 87 RBIs.Howard Rodney Edwards was born in Red Jacket, West Virginia. His nickname came from his time as a Navy medic. The Toronto Blue Jays are聽looking to get younger, more athletic and cheaper for the 2019 season - and that could mean moving out the franchise's clubhouse leader.According to a report from Joel Sherman of the New York Post, Toronto is "willing to eat a portion of the $20 million Russell Martin is owed in 2019 to facilitate a trade." Martin is in the final season of a five-year Tyler Clippard Jersey , $82.5 million contract he signed in the 2014 offseason.But as Sherman noted, finding a taker for Martin won't be easy, even if they eat up some of that salary. He's 36 years of age and batted a terrible .194 in 90 game appearances during the 2018 season, with just 25 RBI and an OPS of .663.advertisingAfter registering their second straight losing season, the Blue Jays are in rebuilding mode.聽J.A. Happ, Roberto Osuna Marwin Gonzalez Jersey , Curtis Granderson and 2015 AL MVP Josh Donaldson were all traded during the season, as team president Mark Shapiro and GM Ross Atkins try to rebuild this roster through聽its loaded farm system. Credit: Tommy Gilligan-USA TODAY SportsDespite his expensive salary, there could be some value for Martin. He's still one of the game's top defensive catchers and even filled in at left field, shortstop and third base during the 2018 season for the Blue Jays. He's a well-respected locker room leader and has 57 postseason games on his resume.advertisingThere are few catchers in the majors who hit well for both contact and power these days, so Martin's lackluster bat shouldn't scare teams away too much. Most teams could use an upgrade at catcher, and Martin could provide just that.Martin played for his home country team and helped the Blue Jays end a 22-year playoff drought , guiding them to the ALCS in 2015 and 2016. But with Luke Maile and Danny Jansen shining behind the plate in 2018, it makes sense for the Blue Jays to go with the cheaper, younger and more athletic catchers.
