Mazzoni was called up from Triple-A El Paso on Tuesday. With Carter Capps (blood clot) moved to the 60-day DL, Mazzoni will come up to take his spot in the Padres' bullpen. He turned in a strong season with El Paso after being designated for assignment in April, posting an 0.89 ERA and 1.03 WHIP over 20.1 innings, but Mazzoni won't pitch meaningful innings.
Mazzoni was designated for assignment by the Padres on Tuesday. The right-hander failed to make the roster out of camp after battling a shoulder injury late last season. He made two appearances with Triple-A El Paso to begin the year, but has not pitched in a game since April 13. It's uncertain if there's something wrong with Mazzoni, physically, but he figures to pass through waivers unclaimed regardless.
Mazzoni was optioned to Triple-A El Paso on Monday, Jeff Sanders of the San Diego Union-Tribune reports. Mazzoni was competing for a bullpen spot with the Padres, but after allowing a .357 BAA and giving up four runs (three earned) in 4.1 innings pitched, he'll head back to Triple-A to develop a bit more. There is a good chance that he could reappear with the Padres at some point this season if he can improve against upper-level hitters, though, as he did reach the majors for a brief time last season.
The Padres recalled relief pitcher Cory Mazzoni from Triple-A and placed him on the 60-day disabled list on Friday, according to The San Diego Union-Tribune. Mazzoni will head to the disabled list because of a shoulder strain.
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.
