Padres promote Marquis; Stults goes on DL
The San Diego Padres have promoted Jason Marquis from Double-A San Antonio to start Thursday's game against the San Francisco Giants.
To make room on the roster, left-hander Eric Stults was placed on the 15-day disabled list, retroactive to Tuesday, with a strained muscle in his shoulder. The Padres also transferred shortstop Jason Bartlett from the 15-day to the 60-day disabled list.
Stults was hurt during a bullpen session.
Marquis was signed to a minor league contract on May 29. He started the season with Minnesota.
Reliever Andrew Cashner is scheduled to start in Stults' spot Saturday at Milwaukee.
