Padres get help

Austin American-Statesman - - SPORTS -

The San Diego Padres ac­ti­vated out­fielder-in­fielder Matt Stairs and right-han­der Tim Stauf­fer from the 15-day dis­abled list.

Stairs has been out since June 6 with a knee in­jury, and Stauf­fer was side­lined on May 11 af­ter un­der­go­ing an emer­gency ap­pen­dec­tomy.

The Padres op­tioned out­fielder Aaron Cunningham to Triple-A Port­land and des­ig­nated right-han­der Sean Gal­lagher for as­sign­ment.

Stairs was hit­ting .191 in 32 games for the Padres prior to the in­jury, mostly as a pinch­hit­ter, with one home run and seven RBIs. Stauf­fer, a for­mer first-round draft pick by the Padres, has gone 2-1 with a 0.39 ERA in 10 re­lief ap­pear­ances this sea­son.

Gal­lagher made 15 re­lief ap­pear­ances and had no record with a 5.40 ERA.
