Correia Activated, Russell to AAA

Kevin Correia was activated from the bereavement list to start Saturday night’s game against the Dodgers.

Making room on the roster is the demotion of Adam Russell, who threw 4 1/3 scoreless, hitless innings earlier in the season but did not appear in a game during his most recent callup.

The move puts the Padres at a normal seven-man bullpen for the first time since Correia took leave–reliever Tim Stauffer made Correia’s last start, and then was DL’ed and replaced by another reliever.

Russell heads back to Triple-A, where he was struggling with a 9.00 ERA.
