The San Diego Padres have recalled right-handed pitcher Tim Stauffer from their Triple-A Tucson minor league affiliate and does not have a defined role yet. To make room for him on the active roster, the Padres have designated right-handed reliever Thad Weber for assignment. Weber will have to clear the waiver wire process and accept an assignment by the Padres to remain with the organization.
In an unrelated move, San Diego has also placed outfielder Carlos Quentin on the paternity leave list. He will be back within three days. Congratulations to the Quentin family and hopefully the newborn won’t have daddy’s attitude.
