Moseley scratched from Tuesday's start
DENVER -- The Padres still hadn't announced a starter for Tuesday before opening up a three-game set against the Rockies at Coors Field on Monday, but San Diego manager Bud Black said the start won't go to right-hander Dustin Moseley.Moseley suffered a dislocation of his non-throwing shoulder during his start against the Rockies on Wednesday. Moseley threw about 35 pitches during a bullpen session on Monday, and Black said he doesn't expect the righty, who was injured while swinging at a pitch, to make a trip to the disabled list. "He will skip this start but will be able to jump back into the rotation by this weekend," Black said. San Diego's manager said the announcement of Tuesday's starter would come after Monday's game. Black said the decision will likely involve a personnel move, which means the Padres may recall left-hander Wade LeBlanc from Triple-A Tucson. LeBlanc was scheduled to start for Tucson on Monday, but he was scratched. LeBlanc took the loss in his only start of the season on April 24 against Philadelphia, but he was solid, allowing three runs on nine hits over eight innings, while striking out two and walking four.
Hudson approaches rehab stint
DENVER -- Padres second baseman Orlando Hudson is nearing a return to action.Hudson, on the 15-day disabled list after suffering a groin strain on May 25, ran the bases, fielded ground balls and took batting practice at Coors Field on Monday. Padres manager Bud Black said Hudson could begin a rehab assignment, likely coming with Class A Lake Elsinore, as early as Wednesday. "He's getting closer," Black said. In his first season with the Padres, Hudson is hitting .217 with seven RBIs.
