Padres' Wieland heading to DL

Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO (AP) — Padres manager Bud Black says rookie starter Joe Wieland will be placed on the disabled due to discomfort in his right elbow.

Wieland (0-4, 4.55 ERA) will be the fourth Padres starter to go on the DL, although Tim Stauffer could be close to being activated.

Wieland's next start had been scheduled for Saturday at Philadelphia. The Padres are off Thursday.

Stauffer threw 78 pitches in seven innings of scoreless ball in a rehab start with Class A Lake Elsinore on Thursday night. He allowed three hits, struck out five and walked three.
