The Associated Press reports San Diego Padres SS Rey Ordonez has left the team. The Padres had granted Ordonez a temporary leave of absence Tuesday to fly to Florida to deal with family issues but Padres general manager Kevin Towers spoke to Ordonez's agent, Adam Katz, on Friday and said he is not expected to return to the club because of issues related entirely to baseball. "What I more or less got from his agent is (that) this is the first time in his career that he had to battle for a job, and I think he looked at his competition and he thought (Greene) was playing very well," Towers said. "He thought that his chances probably weren't real good, and he was probably right. He had a good spring for us, but I think he realized that Greene was our future shortstop and likely to make the team as a starter. Rather than continue to fight it out with him, he decided to take off."
