Stock landed on the 10-day injured list Thursday with a right bicep strain.
The injury perhaps explains Stock's recent struggles, as he allowed six runs in 3.1 innings of work over his last two appearances. It's not clear how much time he's expected to miss.
Stock was recalled from Triple-A El Paso on Saturday.
Stock made the Opening Day roster and struggled with six runs allowed in seven games and has not appeared in the majors since mid-April. The 29-year-old was a solid bullpen piece for San Diego last season with a 2.50 ERA, 1.26 WHIP and 38:13 K:BB across 39.2 innings.
Stock was optioned to Triple-A El Paso on Thursday.
Stock failed to make an appearance during his most recent stint with the Padres, which lasted just one day. The right-hander was shipped to the minors to free up a roster spot for Thursday's starter, Matt Strahm, who was activated from the injured list.
Stock has been called up from Triple-A El Paso, Kevin Acee of The San Diego Union-Tribune reports.
The Padres optioned Chris Paddack to High-A Lake Elsinore for rest purposes Wednesday, so Stock has been recalled in the corresponding move. The right-hander gave up six earned runs in six big-league innings this season before getting sent down in April.
The Padres optioned Stock to Triple-A El Paso on Sunday.
San Diego will swap out Stock and Gerardo Reyes ahead of Sunday's series finale against the Diamondbacks for a pair of fresh relief arms in Phil Maton and Luis Perdomo. Stock surrendered runs in three of his most recent four appearances, prompting the demotion.
Stock struck out three in his 1.2 innings of scoreless relief work in the Padres' 10-3 loss against the Diamondbacks on Monday.
It wasn't of any consequence in a lopsided defeat for the Padres, but Stock's performance was notable as he punched out three batters in a dominant ninth inning, needing just 12 pitches to do so. His fastball topped out at a blistering 100.6 miles per hour, and he also showcased a filthy 84-mph slider. The 29-year-old had a two-run hiccup in San Diego's March 30 game against the Giants, leaving his ERA at 6.75, but he posted a 2.56 mark over 39.2 innings last year. If he can build on Monday's strong effort, Stock could emerge as a solid contributor out of the Padres' bullpen.
Stock fired three scoreless innings while allowing a hit and striking out five in Tuesday's 6-3 loss to the Mets.
Tuesday's stellar outing was a stark contrast to Stock's last appearance (four runs in less than an inning July 20). The 28-year-old is an intriguing bullpen arm based on his ability to dial his fastball up to triple digits at times (97.4 mph average). The righty has struck out 11 batters with no walks over 6.2 innings in the majors so far, but he was limited to a pedestrian 2.5 K/BB in 24 games with Triple-A El Paso. Stock should get plenty of opportunities in the Padres' bullpen as they continue to sink in the standings, but he will have to rail off a series of consistent outings before being trusted in a higher-leverage role.
Stock was recalled from Triple-A El Paso on Friday.
Stock allowed one run and five hits over three innings during his first stint with the Padres before returning to the Chihuahuas in early July. San Diego's bullpen is being reshuffled with Brad Hand and Adam Cimber traded to Cleveland, which could provide Stock an opportunity to earn a more significant role if he can continue to pitch well.
Stock was optioned to Triple-A El Paso on Friday.
Stock pitched in four games since getting his contract selected by the organization in late June, posting a 3.00 ERA and 1.67 WHIP with five strikeouts across three innings. Look for him to return to the fold later this summer when the Padres require reinforcements in the bullpen.
Stock's contract was selected from Triple-A El Paso on Sunday, Dennis Lin of The Athletic San Diego reports.
The 28-year-old righty has never pitched in the major leagues. Stock has a 1.93 ERA in 23.1 innings for El Paso this season. Jordan Lyles was placed on the disabled list with forearm tightness in a corresponding move.
The Padres reassigned Stock to minor-league camp Friday.
Stock earned consideration for a spot in the Padres' bullpen this spring, but this move is unsurprising considering he has yet to reach the Triple-A level. The 28-year-old had a 2.98 ERA and 1.32 WHIP over 45.1 innings at Double-A Pensacola last season, and seems likely to start the 2018 season at Triple-A El Paso.
Stock struck out a pair of batters over a clean inning in Thursday's loss to the Cubs.
Manager Andy Green announced that Stock has put himself in the mix for a bullpen job, AJ Cassavell of MLB.com reports. This strong outing was no fluke, as the righty mowed down Kris Bryant and Anthony Rizzo in relief of Jordan Lyles. Stock can touch 100 mph, but he used his off-speed offerings to retire both of the Cubs' sluggers. He would begin the season in middle relief should he win a job out of camp.
Stock signed a minor-league deal with the Padres on Wednesday, Baseball America's Matt Eddy reports.
Stock spent time with the Double-A and High-A affiliates of the Reds this past season, producing a 2.98 ERA and 1.33 WHIP over 45.1 innings of relief with Pensacola at the Double-A level. The soon-to-be 28-year-old has yet to appear in any major-league games at this point in his career, and is unlikely to do so in 2018.
