Padres' Walker Lockett: Placed on minor-league DL
Lockett was placed on the 7-day DL at Triple-A El Paso on Friday with a lower-back strain, Jeff Sanders of the San Diego Union-Tribune reports.
He posted a 4.39 ERA, 1.45 WHIP and 33:13 K:BB in 55.1 innings (10 starts) with El Paso prior to the injury. If Lockett were healthy and pitching well, he would be an option to eventually join the big-league rotation, but no such promotion appears to be on the horizon.
