Padres Claim Josh Wilson, DFA Duaner Sanchez

MLB.com's Corey Brock took to his Twitter account this evening for a few announcements: The Padres have claimed infielder Josh Wilson and designated reliever Duaner Sanchez for assignment.

Wilson, 28, was DFA'd by the Diamondbacks this week after starting the season with a .231/.333/.269 line in 11 games.  He'll provide infield depth for the Padres, especially at shortstop.  We actually discussed the club's infield situation with Brock just one day ago.  The D'Backs, according to MLB.com's Steve Gilbert, signed Abraham Nunez out of the independent league partially to compensate for the loss of infield depth.

Sanchez, a 29-year-old right-hander, went 1-1 with a 9.00 ERA, 2.36 WHIP and 2/8 K/BB ratio in 11 innings after being signed by the San Diego on March 15.  Those numbers were simply unacceptable, even for the 13-22 Padres.
