|Padres purchase Tim Stauffer's contract|
|by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com|
(5/17/13) The Padres announced Friday they have purchased the contract of Tim Stauffer from Triple-A Tucson to take Carlos Quentin's place on the active roster. Quentin was placed on the paternity list, and Thad Weber was designate for assignment to open a place on the 40-man roster for Stauffer.
Stauffer is likely to pitch in relief while with the team. He has been recovering from elbow surgery, and he put up a 3.16 ERA in eight games at Triple-A.
|Tim Stauffer worth deep NL-only speculation|
|by Nando Di Fino | Senior Fantasy Writer|
(5/16/13) Last season, Padres pitcher Tim Stauffer was a trendy late-round draft pick, coming off a 3.73 ERA and 1.26 WHIP in 2011 (in 31 starts). This followed a 1.85 ERA and 1.08 WHIP in 82 2/3 innings the season before, mostly out of relief. Stauffer celebrated by pitching five innings in his first 2012 game ... and going down with an elbow injury that eventually required surgery.
Now that he's healthy, Stauffer has been quietly compiling a nice set of stats in the PCL, with a 3.16 ERA over eight games. Despite some early returns, he won't get a lot of strikeouts when he's called back up. Additionally, Stauffer has an ugly 1.52 overall WHIP, but he's managed to control that lately, with a 1.11 mark in his last three games. For the hitter-happy PCL, these are encouraging numbers.
Stauffer has a "role" problem -- in that he doesn't have one. The Padres have all five spots filled, with Clayton Richard rehabbing and Tyson Ross supposedly slotting back in when he's fully healthy. But for NL-only leaguers looking for a clever long-term (plan on maybe a June/July call-up, at best?) stash to their rotation, Stauffer has been left out of a lot of conversations, but has gotten the job done before in the majors.
|Tim Stauffer feels good about health|
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
(3/27/13) Padres starting pitcher Tim Stauffer, who had August surgery on his right elbow, said he is feeling good about his health, according to MLB.com. Stauffer has been told he will begin the season at Triple-A Tucson. He is 0-3 with an 8.74 ERA and 1.50 WHIP in six relief outings this spring.
|Tim Stauffer takes third spring loss|
|by Ed Gauna | CBSSports.com|
(3/20/13) Padres pitcher Tim Stauffer had another rough outing in Wednesday's Cactus League game against the Giants. He allowed three runs on five hits over three innings of the 6-4 loss. The right-hander struck out four and walked one.
Stauffer, in camp on a minor-league deal, has gone 0-3 with a 10.61 ERA through five spring appearances.
|Stauffer slips up vs. Cubs|
|(3/10/13) After hurling two scoreless frames in his first two appearances this spring, Padres pitcher Tim Stauffer was not as sharp in Sunday' Cactus League game against the Cubs. He allowed four runs on four hits over two innings of work. Stauffer also struck out one with no walks. "I thought his stuff was good. I thought his stuff was fine," manager Bud Black told MLB.com. "I thought his stuff was better than the first two outings, so that's a really good sign for Stauff."
|At this time last year, Tim Stauffer looked like he was finally on the verge of becoming a respectable starting pitcher in Fantasy. After years of injury woes, the former first-round pick of the Padres had just completed his first full season as a big-league starter, compiling a 3.73 ERA in 185 2/3 innings. But he didn't need long to revert to his old ways, straining his right triceps in spring training and missing the first six weeks of the season. He returned for exactly one start in mid-May before going back on the DL with a strained right elbow -- an injury that, apart from a futile attempt at a rehab assignment in August, ended his season. He had surgery to repair the flexor tendon in his elbow after the season and is looking for a new home now. With the timetable for his return uncertain, he's unlikely to land with a team that promises him a rotation spot. Stauffer is a name to remember in deeper Fantasy leagues if he gets a shot midseason -- he has proven to be a competent major-league pitcher, after all -- but you have no reason to target him on Draft Day.
