• Padres pitching prospects Robbie Erlin (tendinitis) and Juan Oramas (forearm tightness) have landed on Double-A San Antonio's seven-day disabled list. Each is expected to miss one start.

• Starting pitcher Joe Wieland is doing "fine" and is expected to start playing catch in the next few days, Padres manager Bud Black said. Wieland went on the DL on May 10 (retroactive to May 7) for a strained right elbow.

• Outfielder Mark Kotsay said Wednesday he is feeling better and making progress every day after experiencing tightness in his lower back last weekend. He was listed as available off the bench for Wednesday's game against the Dodgers.
