Padres call up Suppan for Wednesday start

05/02/12 4:53 PM

San Diego, CA (Sports Network) - The Padres on Wednesday purchased the contract of veteran hurler Jeff Suppan from Triple-A Tucson for his first start of the year, against the Milwaukee Brewers.

San Diego inked Suppan to a minor league contract with an invitation to spring training back in early February. He has made two starts with Tucson this year.

Last season, the 37-year-old right-hander went 11-8 with a 4.78 earned run average over 27 starts and one relief appearance with Kansas City's Triple-A affiliate, the Omaha Storm Chasers.

He'll make the start in place of Cory Luebke, who was placed on the 15-day DL, retroactive to April 28, with a strained left elbow. The 27-year-old was 3-1 with a 2.61 ERA in five starts.

In addition, the Pads transferred outfielder Kyle Blanks to the 60-day DL, in the wake of his season-ending left-shoulder surgery performed on April 24.
