by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(8/19/2014) The Padres selected the contract of pitcher Frank Garces from Double-A San Antonio Tuesday while also optioning pitcher Jesse Hahn to San Antonio and designating infielder Brooks Conrad for assignment.
A starter for most of his minor-league career, Garces has made all 47 of his appearances with San Antonio out of the bullpen while posting a 2.07 ERA and 73:23 K:BB ratio in 61 innings. Hahn has pitched 110 1/3 innings, and the team will likely look to wind him down over the remainder of the season. Conrad last appeared with the major-league team in late July.
