Padres recall LeBlanc, option Neshek
SAN DIEGO (AP) - The San Diego Padres have recalled left-hander Wade LeBlanc from Triple-A Tucson to start Sunday against Roy Halladay and the Philadelphia Phillies.
To make room, right-hander Pat Neshek was optioned to Tucson.
LeBlanc was previously recalled from Tucson on April 10 as bullpen depth a day after the Padres had to finish a suspended game and then play a regularly scheduled game. He wasn't used, and was optioned back the following day.
LeBlanc went 8-12 with a 4.25 ERA for the Padres last season.
Neshek was claimed off waivers from the Minnesota Twins on March 20. He was 1-0 with a 2.25 ERA in eight appearances this year.
