Dustin Moseley’s season may be over

Bad news in San Diego: Padres starter Dustin Moseley, who is on the 15-day disabled list with a right shoulder strain, has more than a right shoulder strain, and it looks like his season is over as a result.

Bud Black said an MRI on Dustin Moseley’s right shoulder revealed “extensive damage,” and that “he’s going to be shut down for a period of time that will take him past 15 days.”  Personally, I can’t remember the last time a dude had “extensive damage” to his shoulder and didn’t miss a year, can you?

It looks like the Padres will call up Joe Wieland — who came to the organization in the Mike Adams deal last year — to make his major league debut Saturday. He was pulled in the second inning of his start at Triple-A last night for what were then unknown reasons. Wieland threw a no-hitter in Double-A last year — before the trade, against the Padres affiliate in San Antonio by the way — so he may be fun.

    So far this year for the Padres most of the headlines should start with.. Bad news in San Diego.

    Already 2/5 starters are out, Quentin and Kotsay out and Padres still can’t hit. The only bright side right now is the chance to see Wieland and some of the young talent get some MLB time.

      Thats ok. First overall pick here we come. Good thing there is a sure thing prospect out there to pick next year just like the Nats had two years in a row….oh wait. Whats Matt Bush up to these days? Sorry, i’m very bitter right now. Hard to be real happy about their top farm system when EVERY article is bad news, like you said.

      Here’s hoping Headly has a great first half so we can get something good for him at the deadline.

    Yeah, but at least the ownership situation is stable and fan confidence in team leadership has never been stronger.

    Oh, wait…….

    I did see their “Come Dressed As An Empty Seat” promotion went over like gangbusters last night, so they have that going for them.

    How hard do you think Kevin Towers is laughing right about now?????

      I don’t think Towers is laughing at all. I’m sure he wishes them well, as a professional who spent a lot of years there.

      I hope the Padres turn around soon. I’d love to see Gwynn get involved somehow.
