Padres activate LHP Eric Stults from DL
SAN DIEGO (AP) The Padres have activated left-handed pitcher Eric Stults from the 15-day disabled list, and optioned right-hander Nick Vincent to Triple-A Tucson.
Stults had been sidelined with a strained lower back muscle since June 6. In four starts for the Padres, Stults has gone 1-2 with a 3.33 ERA. San Diego claimed Stults off waivers from the Chicago White Sox on May 17.
