The Padres have announced a series of roster moves, with right-hander Craig Stammen reinstated from the 60-day injured list. To create room on the active roster, righty Nabil Crismatt was optioned to Triple-A El Paso. Right-hander Tayler Scott was designated for assignment to open a spot on the 40-man roster.
With Pierce Johnson and now Stammen coming off the 60-day IL in consecutive days, the Padres have bolstered their relief corps with a pair of solid right-handers. For Stammen, he last pitched on July 4 before right shoulder inflammation led to an extended stint on the sidelines.
Now in his sixth season with the Padres, Stammen was delivering his usual solid work at the time of his injury. The righty has a 3.34 ERA/3.27 SIERA over 32 1/3 innings, with a 51.5% grounder rate and an elite 3.6% walk rate.
Scott posted a 6.75 ERA over 12 innings for San Diego after his minor league deal was initially selected to the active roster in July. This marked Scott’s first MLB action since 2019, as he has spent the last two seasons pitching in Japan for the Hiroshima Carp. The righty has been on the 15-day IL since mid-August due to a finger laceration, so the Padres first had to activate Scott from the injured list before designating him for assignment.
