Baumann was optioned to Triple-A El Paso on Sunday. Bauman faced just one batter and required just one pitch to retire him in his major league debut Saturday. With a spot needed for Edwin Jackson on the 25-man roster for his start Sunday, the 28-year-old southpaw will return to Triple-A El Paso, where he owns a 1.06 ERA and 17:8 K/BB ratio this season.
Baumann was recalled from Triple-A El Paso on Friday. Baumann is now set to make his major league debut with the Padres calling upon his services Friday. The 28-year-old has impressed in relief for Triple-A El Paso this season, compiling a 1.06 ERA and 1.00 WHIP over 17 innings to go along with 17 strikeouts. He figures to provide bullpen relief for the Padres during his first stay in the big leagues.
Baumann (back) was reinstated from the 60-day DL on Friday and optioned to Triple-A El Paso. A lower back strain landed Baumann on the disabled list before the season even began, and he was subsequently placed on the 60-day DL to clear space on the 40-man roster. He began his rehab assignment at the beginning of June, and after exhausting his rehab clock of 30 days, he was reinstated by the Padres. Baumann notched a strong 1.46 ERA and .99 WHIP over 12.1 innings during his rehab assignment, but the Padres will keep him down in the Triple-A bullpen for the time being.
Baumann (back) has allowed one run and four hits across three innings during his rehab assignment with Triple-A El Paso. Baumann has appeared in three games with El Paso, throwing for an inning each time. The most he's thrown in a game has been 22 pitches, 16 of which were strikes. While he began the season with San Diego, Baumann has yet to pitch in an MLB game since being drafted in 2009, but could very well have an opportunity to do so upon the completion of his rehab assignment.
Baumann (back) was assigned to Triple-A El Paso for a rehab assignment on Thursday, Dennis Lin of the San Diego Union Tribune reports. Baumann has been dealing with a nagging back injury that dates back to spring training and has kept him on the DL for the entirety of the season. His move to El Paso means a return could be in the not-too-distant future, although he will likely need more than one outing to get acclimated before he heads back to the majors.
