The Padres claimed 25-year-old righty Jae Kuk Ryu off waivers from the Rays; here's the MLB.com story.
On his personal blog, Padres executive Paul DePodesta writes that he likes the pickup because Ryu's got good enough stuff to compete for a job in the Padres' rotation or in their bullpen.
DePodesta writes that there's "more activity forthcoming." Ken Rosenthal heard the Padres are likely to pass on Omar Vizquel.
