Padres | Burch Smith coming up
San Diego Padres manager Bud Black said SP Burch Smith will be recalled and make his major league debut against the Tampa Bay Rays Saturday, May 11.
Fantasy Tip: Smith will be taking the rotation spot of Clayton Richard (illness). In six starts for Double-A San Antonio this year, Smith had a 1.15 ERA and 37 K's in 31 1/3 innings. He had walked only six. He's never pitched above Class AA, though, and a start against the Rays isn't very intriguing. He's likely to be sent back down once Richard returns, too, so don't expect much from Smith.
