SAN DIEGO -- The Padres on Sunday recalled right-hander Cory Mazzoni from Triple-A El Paso and optioned left-hander Chris Rearick to El Paso as well.
Mazzoni came to the organization when the Padres traded Alex Torres to the New York Mets in March. The 25-year-old Mazzoni has never pitched in the Majors, and got the call that he was joining the Padres late Saturday night from El Paso manager Pat Murphy, then caught an early flight to San Diego to be ready for the series finale against the Dodgers on Sunday.
