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.
