Eric Stults, who the White Sox had designated for assignment on Tuesday to make room for Jesse Crain, has been claimed off of waivers by the San Diego Padres.

The White Sox signed the lefty to a minor league contract this offseason. He began the season in the starting rotation for Triple-A Charlotte. He made two appearances for the White Sox. The first was a start in the nightcap of last Monday's doubleheader against Cleveland and the other was two-thirds of a inning to finish last Sunday's blowout loss in Kansas City. In total, he threw 6.2 innings with 6 hits, 4 walks, 4 strikeouts and a hit batter. He did his job in the game against Cleveland, giving up just two runs in six innings of work and keeping the team in the game.

Stults has spent parts of six seasons in the majors with the Dodgers, Rockies and White Sox. Every American League team passed on making a claim. The Padres, with the worst record in the National League, had the first opportunity to claim him and did.
