SAN DIEGO — The San Diego Padres have claimed left-hander Bobby LaFromboise off waivers from the Seattle Mariners and optioned him to Triple-A El Paso.

To make room on the 40-man roster, the club transferred right-hander Joe Wieland from the 15-day disabled list to the 60-day DL.

Wieland, still rehabbing from reconstructive elbow surgery, recently had arthroscopic surgery to relieve irritation in the back of his elbow, pushing back his return. Manager Bud Black thinks Wieland can return before the All-Star break.
