Two days after being designated for assignment, Padres left-hander Eury De La Rosa has cleared waivers and been outrighted to Triple-A El Paso, per U-T San Diego. De La Rosa has been with three different organizations this season but has yet to pitch in the major leagues.
The Padres called up third baseman Brett Wallace on Friday. Wallace was hitting .305 with eight home runs and 37 RBI at Triple-A El Paso. He last played in the Major Leagues in 2013, with Houston. To make room for Wallace on the roster, the Padres optioned pitcher Cory Mazzoni to El Paso. Mazzoni had a 20.77 ERA in eight games with the Padres. To clear a spot on the 40-man roster, the Padres designated pitcher Eury De La Rosa for assignment. De La Rosa has played for three organizations this season. He was 0-1, 5.00 at El Paso.
The Padres have claimed left-handed pitcher Eury De La Rosa from the Dodgers and optioned him to their Triple-A affiliate. The team also transferred right-handed pitcher Josh Johnson from the 15-day disabled list to the 60-day. Johnson, who has been dealing with an elbow injury, has not pitched yet this season. He threw a 32-pitch bullpen session on May 15, the first time he threw off a mound since a simulated game on April 28.
The Dodgers officially announced the signings of infielder Hector Olivera and Cuban right-hander Pablo Fernandez to a minor-league deal, per the team's official website. Olivera, who passed a physical Tuesday, agreed to a six-year, $62.5 million contract back in March. In order to make for Olivera on the 40-man roster, the Dodgers designated left-hander Eury De La Rosa for assignment.
The Dodgers claimed Eury De La Rosa from the Athletics and optioned him to Triple-A Oklahoma City. Los Angeles also transferred Brandon McCarthy (elbow) to 60-day disabled list to make room on the 40-man roster.
