Stauffer pitches in first rehab start

SAN FRANCISCO -- Pitcher Tim Stauffer, appearing Sunday for Class A Lake Elsinore on a Minor League rehabilitation assignment, allowed two runs on six hits in 3 2/3 innings.

In a game against Rancho Cucamonga, Stauffer opened with scoreless innings in the first and second inning before allowing a run in each of the third and fourth innings.

This was the first rehab assignment for Stauffer, who went on the disabled list with a strained right elbow on April 5 (retroactive to April 4).

San Diego manager Bud Black said Sunday morning the team would meet with Stauffer in San Diego on Monday but that he would need a second rehab appearance.

"At least two, maybe three," Black said.
