Padres Make Roster Move, 8/10/14
Following today’s series win over the Pirates in Pittsburgh, the team announced that they have reinstated RHP Joe Wieland from the 60-day disabled list and optioned him to Triple-A El Paso. Wieland underwent “Tommy John” elbow reconstruction surgery in July of 2012.
In his second rehab start last night, Wieland gave up two runs (one earned) on four hits and a walk with four striekouts in five innings with Double-A San Antonio. He has allowed three runs (two earned) over nine innings.
