Padres designated RHP Donn Roach for assignment.

Roach was acquired from the Angels in May 2012 as part of a package for reliever Ernesto Frieri but never quite met the hype in the Padres' organization. The 24-year-old right-hander registered a 5.24 ERA in 77 1/3 innings this past season at Triple-A El Paso.
Nov 3 - 6:58 PM

Padres optioned RHP Donn Roach to Triple-A El Paso.

Roach has a 4.75 ERA and 1.68 WHIP in 15 relief appearances and one spot start this season for San Diego. The 24-year-old could get another look later this summer.
Jun 3 - 5:43 PM

Donn Roach allowed four runs in three innings, picking up the no-decision in Sunday's loss to the Padres.

As Roach was spot starting, manager Bud Black took him out after throwing 46 pitches. Overall, he allowed four hits and two walks without recording a strikeout in his first major league start. Despite contributing out of the Padres' bullpen, Roach has plenty of minor league experience as a starter. It remains to be seen if he'll be the Padres' go-to option again with Andrew Cashner on the disabled list.

Donn Roach will make a spot start for the Padres on Sunday afternoon against the Rockies.

Roach has been pitching out of the San Diego bullpen all year and so he'll be limited to a pitch count of 60 in his first-ever major league start on Sunday in Colorado. The 24-year-old right-hander is not a good fantasy streamer against the Rockies. He is filling in for Andrew Cashner, who was placed on the disabled list Saturday with soreness in his throwing elbow.

Padres purchased the contract of RHP Donn Roach from Double-A San Antonio.

Roach made 28 starts for San Antonio this season, posting a 3.53 ERA over 142 2/3 innings of work. The move was made to protect the 23-year-old from December's Rule 5 Draft.

Padres reassigned RHPs Brandon Kloess and Donn Roach to minor league camp.

Neither were real candidates for the Opening Day roster. Roach could make his major league debut at some point this season, though, after posting a 2.70 over four spring appearances.

Padres acquired RHP Donn Roach and INF-OF Alexi Amarista from the Angels for RHP Ernesto Frieri.

Roach, a 2010 third-round pick, has a 3.97 ERA over his first 165 2/3 innings of pro ball. The 22-year-old right-hander has logged time as both a starter and reliever, but he had an impressive 2.16 ERA and 29/3 K/BB ratio in 41 2/3 innings over his first five starts with High-A Inland Empire this season. He's expected to report to High-A Lake Elsinore.
