The Padres have designated right-hander Kip Wells for assignment, according to a team press release. In a corresponding move, right-hander Cory Burns has been selected from Triple-A Tucson.
Wells posted a 4.58 ERA in seven starts with the Padres, recording more walks (20) than strikeouts (19) in 37 1/3 innings of work. It was Wells' first time pitching in the Major Leagues since the 2009 season. The 35-year-old signed a minor league deal with San Diego in May.
