The Padres designated right-hander Cesar Carrillo for assignment to create 40-man roster space, according to the team. The Padres called up pitching prospect Cory Luebke, reinstated Oscar Salazar from the DL and called up Triple A catcher Chris Stewart in corresponding moves.
Carrillo appeared in three games for the Padres last year, but has not played in the majors so far in 2010. The Padres selected the 26-year-old right-hander in the first round of the 2005 draft. In 27 Triple A starts this year, Carrillo has a 5.60 ERA with 5.7 K/9 and 3.4 BB/9.
