San Diego, CA (SportsNetwork.com) - The San Diego Padres have relieved general manager Josh Byrnes of his duties.

The Padres entered Sunday with a 32-43 record behind the league's worst offense. They have scored only 224 runs while batting .215.

"This ownership group is committed to fielding a team that consistently competes for postseason play," said Padres president and CEO Mike Dee in a statement. "Thus far this season, the results on the field have been mixed at best and clearly have not lived up to expectations. After a lengthy evaluation of every facet of our baseball operations, we have decided to make this change today."

Byrnes was promoted to GM in October 2011 and the Padres had back-to-back 76- win seasons the next two years.

Senior vice president of baseball operations Omar Minaya and assistant general managers A.J. Hinch and Fred Uhlman, Jr. will combine to perform the GM duties on an interim basis.
