From MLB.com’s Corey Brock comes word that the Padres have placed starter Dustin Moseley on the 15-day disabled list with a right shoulder strain and have recalled left-hander Josh Spence from Triple-A Tucson to take his place on the 25-man roster.
Moseley surrendered five earned runs and walked two batters Saturday in his regular-season debut against the Dodgers. He noticed a slight feeling of discomfort in his throwing shoulder after hurling a fastball to Dodgers center fielder Matt Kemp and looked up at the scoreboard radar reading to find that it only traveled 84 mph. Moseley averaged 88.9 mph with his heater in 2011.
The 30-year-old right-hander is out indefinitely. Anthony Bass, who made two starts this spring and finished with a promising 3.00 ERA and 9/1 K/BB ratio in 15 total Cactus League innings, could slide into the San Diego starting rotation in Moseley’s absence. Micah Owings also has experience as a starter.
