The Padres announced another round of roster cuts on Wednesday, per the team's official website. The team optioned utility man Tommy Medica and outfielder Abraham Almonte to Triple-A El Paso. They also reassigned infielder Jason Lane, right-hander Marcos Mateo and shortstop Ramiro Pena to minor-league camp.
Padres pitcher Jason Lane surrendered seven earned runs on nine hits in four innings while striking out three in Wednesday's 9-5 loss to the Dodgers. Lane served up three home runs in the loss, but got some modicum of revenge by smacking one of his own in the fifth inning. He's delivered an 8.49 ERA in 11 2/3 innings this spring while striking out seven and walking one.
Pitcher Jason Lane will be the Padres spring training starter when the team opens Cactus League play Wednesday, manager Bud Black said Saturday. Lane pitched 10 1/3 innings in 2014 with six strikeouts.
The Padres outrighted pitcher Jason Lane to Triple-A El Paso Thursday, two days after he was designated for assignment. Lane appeared in three games for the Padres, allowing just one run in 10 1/3 innings while going 0-1.
Padres shortstop Everth Cabrera (hamstring) was activated from the 15-day disabled list Tuesday. Pitcher Jason Lane was designated for assignment to clear a roster spot.
