Kevin Quackenbush promoted to San Diego

Joe Camporeale-USA TODAY Sports

Shortly after news came down that Jace Peterson will be promoted to San Diego with Chase Headley hitting the DL, Twitter was abuzz again with the word that right-handed reliever Kevin Quackenbush got a call of his own. It's still up in the air whose place on the roster he'll take, so feel free to speculate in the comments about a possible Nick Hundley trade or whatever, because I'm not getting into that up here.

In ten innings over nine outings with the AAA El Paso Chihuahuas this season, Quackenbush has an ERA of 1.80, but that can probably be attributed to small sample size. Because it's so high, that is. The 25-year-old has a career mark of 1.19 in 174.2 innings spread over 153 minor league games. In fact, until he was promoted to the Padres' AAA affiliate (then located in Tucson) halfway through last season, Quackenbush had never posted an ERA over 1 for any pro team. Yeah. Since his debut with Eugene in 2011, Quack has a 15-5 record and 66 saves to go along with a ridiculous strikeout rate of 12 punchies every nine innings.

As soon as more information becomes available, one of us here at Gaslamp Ball will be all over it. We're good like that. Stay tuned.
