"We'll give it some time to calm down," Moseley said. "Yesterday I was down in the dumps but today I'm doing better. We've give it a few days to calm down and see how it feels. We'll see if there's a possibility we can strengthen it and go from there."
Moseley went on the DL on Sunday, the day after he allowed five runs in five innings during a no-decision against Dodgers."He's going to be shut down for a period of time that will take him past 15 days," Black said. "I know it's frustrating. I'm bummed for him." The Padres will use right-hander Anthony Bass on Thursday against the D-backs unless he is needed in long relief in either of the first two games of this series. The Padres will also need a starting pitcher for Saturday against the Dodgers, the spot that would have otherwise been filled by Stauffer. Stauffer landed on the DL on April 4 with a strain of the right elbow. "The rotation will look a lot different than it was supposed to 10 days ago," Black said. "... But we feel as though we have some depth." Right-hander Joe Wieland, one of the Padres' top prospects, will join the team in Los Angeles for that start Saturday. Wieland struck out four over two scoreless innings for Triple-A Tucson on Tuesday before being informed by manager Terry Kennedy that he would be making his Major League debut Saturday with the Padres.
