Padres Designate Spence, Tekotte For Assignment

The Padres announced that they have designated left-handed pitcher Josh Spence and outfielder Blake Tekotte for assignment.  The moves helped create space for the reinstatements of left-hander Cory Luebke, right-hander Joe Wieland, catcher Nick Hundley, and infielder/outfielders Kyle Blanks and James Darnell.  The Padres' 40-man roster is now at capacity.

Spence, 24, appeared in 11 games for the Padres this season but spent the bulk of the year in Triple-A where he posted a 4.20 ERA with 6.6 K/9 and 3.6 BB/9 in 31 appearances.  Tekotte, 25, hit .243/.284/.402 with nine homers in his first Triple-A season.
