    • Rafael De Paula: Cut loose by Padres
      By RotoWire Staff

      De Paula was released by the Padres on Friday, Jeff Sanders of The San Diego Union-Tribune reports. De Paula split time between Double-A and Triple-A, but he consistently failed to find success in El Paso, as he produced a 5.40 ERA and a 1.70 WHIP in 21.2 innings with the Chihuahuas. This stat line will likely make it pretty tough to land a minor-league contract elsewhere, especially given that he's already 26 and still struggles at that level.

Though he has just one home run in the month of July, he is hitting .323 with a .785 OPS in the month, his best so far.

Solarte has slowed down from a hot start and is hitting just .254/.337/.381 this season, while DePaula has a 4.15 ERA in 89 innings for Class A Tampa this season.
