Padres Drawing Interest In Gallagher

A "handful" of teams have called the Padres to discuss trading for pitcher Sean Gallagher, a team source told Dan Hayes of the North County Times.  San Diego DFA'd the 24-year-old on Thursday in order to activate Tim Stauffer.

In 15 relief appearances for the Padres this season, Gallagher posted a 5.40 ERA with 8.1 K/9 and 7.3 BB/9.  While he assumed a long relief role for the big league squad, he has served mostly as a starter in the minors.

One baseball source told Hayes that the righty still has value because of the "buzz from his prospect days".  In 2008, Baseball America ranked Gallagher, then a member of the Cubs organization, the 82nd best prospect in the minors.
