Both pitchers were key contributors in 2011, but each made just one start for the Padres in 2012. It seems likely that both have pitched their last games in a Padres uniform.
Stauffer, 30, was the 4th overall pick by the Padres in 2003. He was the longest tenured Padre in the organization. Stauffer was always a personal favorite of mine, and overcame a series of injuries to become a solid contributor. In 2011, Stauffer started on Opening Day for the Padres, and 9-12, with a 3.73 ERA in 170 innings. According to the U-T’s Twitter account, Stauffer would like to return to the Padres, but it would have to be on a minor league deal.
Moseley, also 30, was a pleasant surprise for the Padres in 2011. He posted a 3.30 ERA in 20 starts. He dislocated his not-pitching shoulder, and made just one start in 2012.
The Padres have stated that they will look to seek starting pitching in free agency, and they will now have a little more flexibility on the 40-man roster.
