Padres' Kazuhisa Makita: Sent down to Triple-A
Makita was optioned to Triple-A El Paso on Monday.
The Japanese reliever has had an eventful season with San Diego. While he has proven to be an effective reliever at times, he's also imploded a few times, ballooning his ERA to 6.75 on the season. He'll head down to the minors to get more experience against upper-level American hitters. Matt Strahm was activated from the disabled list to replace him in the Padres' bullpen.
