SAN FRANCISCO ó Barry Bonds’ perjury trial was delayed indefinitely Friday after federal prosecutors notified the judge overseeing the case that they will appeal her decision to exclude key evidence from the jury.
Prosecutors told Illston of their intention to appeal a couple of hours after Bonds’ personal trainer, Greg Anderson, said at a court hearing that he would not testify at the slugger’s perjury trial. Illston had barred prosecutors from showing the jury three positive steroid tests allegedly belonging to Bonds and other vital evidence unless Anderson took the witness stand to authenticate them.
EATON LET GO
SARASOTA, Fla. ó Adam Eaton’s stay with the Phillies ended Friday when the team released the right-hander, who is owed $9 million by Philadelphia.
“I don’t think upset is the right word,” Eaton said. “Underachieve? Yeah. The expectations for both sides coming in were unrealized. One was achieved last year, but not in the way we thought.
The 31-year-old, originally selected by the Phillies in the first round of the 1996 amateur draft, was 10-10 with a 6.29 ERA in 2007, his first season after agreeing to a $24.5 million, three-year contract as a free agent.
He won the fifth starter’s spot in spring training last year but was 3-8 with a 5.71 ERA in mid-July and accepted a minor league assignment after the All-Star break. He finished 4-8 with a 5.80 ERA and a .310 opponents’ batting average in 19 starts and two relief appearances, then was left off the postseason roster for the second straight year.
Eaton began his career in Kannapolis as a Piedmont Boll Weevil.
