Padres make three more spring cuts

PEORIA, Ariz. -- The Padres trimmed their roster to 45 on Friday when they reassigned three players to Minor League camp.

Right-handed pitchers Daniel Stange and Thad Weber and catcher Eddy Rodriguez joined the rest of the Minor Leaguers in camp. The three weren't on the 40-man roster and didn't have to be optioned.

Stange had a 5.14 ERA in seven games for the Padres this spring, going 1-1 and allowing seven hits over seven innings with seven strikeouts and three walks.

Weber was 0-1 with a 6.52 ERA in five games. He allowed seven runs on 14 hits in 9 2/3 innings and had four strikeouts and three walks.

Rodriguez hit .308 in 13 at-bats over 14 games. He had one home run and knocked in three runs.

The Padres could bring any of the players they've sent to the Minor League side over for Cactus League games in the next week. The team breaks camp Thursday before heading to San Antonio to play two games against the Rangers at the Alamodome.
