Padres Designate Cesar Carrillo For Assignment

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.

is he 29 or 26? Either way he is gone and everyone in SD is happy until we see who was drafted after him in the first round there. Pretty depressing 1st orund for the Padres there

Anybody else pumped to see Cory Luebke on Friday?

definitely, but he is a pitchability style guy under the old regime so holding my breath

He’s not Correia or LeBlanc, and that’s probably his biggest positive right now.

After those comments I made a while back about Wade LeBlanc, I was wrong. Cory Luebke is a harder throwing LeBlanc but knows how to pitch. Maybe the next Dan Haren. I’m really excited to see him pitch on Friday!

Matt Bush now is pitching great for the Crabs. If only he started pitching great or playing great when he was a Padre.
