- Associated Press - Friday, June 1, 2012

SAN DIEGO (AP) - The San Diego Padres have cut pitcher Jeff Suppan after six starts.

The Padres designated the 37-year-old Suppan for assignment on Friday.

Suppan was 2-3 with a 5.28 ERA since being recalled from Triple-A Tucson on May 2. He was out of the majors last season.

Suppan has pitched in the majors for 17 seasons. He has a career record of 140-146 with a 4.70 ERA.

The Padres recalled rookie catcher Yasmani Grandal from Tucson. He was one of four players San Diego received in an offseason trade with Cincinnati for right-handed pitcher Mat Latos. Grandal was hitting .317 with four home runs and 23 RBIs with Tucson.
