Padres - DLed Woody

San Diego Padres - Placed P Woody Williams on the 15-day disabled list; recalled P Randy Williams.

This doesn’t look like a bad injury, so unless there’s a new diagnosis, Williams probably won’t be out too long.  Darrell May gets the temporary rotation job and if there’s a park in which May can have success in, it’s PetCo; if he gets wailed for homers here, he might as well start looking towards coaching.

Randy Williams is kind of an odd callup at first glance, but the Padres don’t want Tim Stauffer to come up just for a start or two and outside of Brian Falkenborg, the Beaver bullpen has just been horrific (Williams’ 6.39 ERA is 2nd among their relievers).  I don’t think it’s the best option, though - if you don’t want to call up Stauffer for a couple of weeks, I’d rather leave May where’s he’s been fairly adequate and bring up Chris Oxspring for a couple of starts.

Tim Stauffer will be up soon, anyway - the team’s rapidly losing patience with Tim Redding and a Peavy-Lawrence-Williams-Eaton-Stauffer rotation has to be coming soon.

Ugh, another one of my roto pitchers goes down with an injury; already lost Schilling and Mota. Gonna be tough to hold on to first like this as there isn't much free agent talent available. Starting to look like this might not be my year.

Same here, alio. Woody joins Ben Sheets, Jim Thome and, hopefully for not much longer, Lance Berkman on my DL.

They couldn't just call up Stauffer now? The Saratoga Central Catholic Alumni Association needs something to celebrate!

May has allowed 97 HRs over the last 3 seasons and unless he lobs the ball up there underhanded, his HR allowed numbers should improve dramatically at Petco. I think May will be fine and maybe even solidify a spot on the team as a 6th starter.

Ditto. He and Mota went down so quickly, it sucked. However, not sure why you guys are complaining about Schilling or Berkman since they were on the DL to START the season :p.

Plus since we only have two DL spots, I've got to pray no one else goes down in the next two weeks.

I don't know. It sounds like the same injury that caused Williams to miss much of the 2002 season.

Williams made 17 starts in 2002. Checking his game log, he seems to have missed all of April but 1 start, then the first two weeks of may, come back until July, then missed most of July and August. So, he came back after about five weeks the first time, then got injured again and missed about seven weeks. Was it the same injury both times, or was one different?

Yup.

HEADLINE: Williams leaves in fifth inning

DATELINE: ST. LOUIS

BODY:
St. Louis Cardinals pitcher Woody Williams, who been on the disabled list twice this year, left Friday night's start with two outs in the fifth inning with tightness in his back and rib cage.

Williams stood on the mound after walking Lance Berkman, the last hitter he faced, and waited for a visit from trainer Barry Weinberg. Williams was sidelined for six weeks both times he was on the DL because of a pulled muscle in his left side.

He has made five starts since coming off the disabled list on Aug. 29. He was first injured pitching against the Astros in his first start of the season on April 5 and he reinjured his side July 6 against the Dodgers.
