Anthony Bass to make debut, Harang to DL, Poreda DFA


The Padres will introduce another youngster tonight with the debut of pitcher Anthony Bass. Bass will fill in for pitcher Dustin Moseley who went down with a shoulder injury. Bass has a 3.41 ERA in 68.2 innings with 63 strikeouts between Double-A and Triple-A. Unfortunately he has to pitch in hitter friendly Coors Field to make his debut.

Aaron Harang was placed on the disabled list with s right foot contusion. In order to make room for Bass on the 40-man roster, the Padres designated P Aaron Poreda for assignment. He was brought to the Padres as part of the Jake Peavy trade. The only piece left from the Peavy trade is P Clayton Richard.

Let’s see if Bass can continue his success from the minor league level to the big stage. His first opportunity comes tonight and we need wins!
