Short hops

Pitcher Tim Stauffer, on the disabled list since May 15 with a strained right elbow, threw 39 pitches in his second Minor League rehabilitation appearance on Tuesday with Class A Lake Elsinore. He was at Petco Park on Wednesday, where he told manager Bud Black that his elbow felt good and that he was encouraged with his 1 2/3 inning stint. There's no timetable set as to when he'll pitch again.
