Stauffer makes rehab start
SAN DIEGO -- Tim Stauffer, who was originally scheduled to be the Padres' Opening Day starter, continues to progress toward rejoining the San Diego rotation.

Stauffer, on the 60-day disabled list with an injured right elbow, made his second rehab start Saturday night for Class A Lake Elsinore, throwing his scheduled one inning and yielding two earned runs on three hits. Stauffer also went one inning with the Padres' Arizona League squad in Peoria on Wednesday, and manager Bud Black said the club is currently deciding where the 30-year-old will make his next rehab appearance, tentatively scheduled for Tuesday.

"Nothing too exciting, but it's something," Stauffer said of his short but successful outing. "I felt good, no issues ... encouraging sign."

"He threw all his pitches, got nicked for a couple runs, but overall he threw the ball well according to the Lake Elsinore staff," Black said. "[He had] Stauffer-like stuff, but maybe not where he'll get to once he gets his arm strength."

Stauffer made one start this season, a five-inning, three-earned-run showing in a no-decision against the Nationals on May 14. He was placed on the DL immediately following that start.
