Padres Designate Kip Wells For Assignment

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.

Kip Wells sucks. I am curious to see how Cory Burns pitches with that funky delivery!

Kip Wells is done. He hasn’t been able to throw strikes in well…forever.

Stults will replace him as a starter I’m assuming? Any guess on what’ll happen to Ohlendorf?

Ohlendorf hits the road right behind Wells as soon as someone else comes off the DL

I thought he retired a couple of years ago…what next, a Brett Tomko sighting?

This is good news, I hope Olendorph is next. Watching him practically die on the mound yesterday against Cinci was tough on the stomach. Whats the word on Cory Burns?

Ohlendorf should seriously consider returning to princeton for his senior season. Himself and baseball just do not agree at the MLB level.

Iffy stuff, lots of deception in delivery, has had good results in minors but stuff doesn’t play great in majors most likely, not a high leverage arm.
