Padres designated RHP Donn Roach and LHP Eric Stults for assignment.
Both players are going to begin the season in the minor leagues unless they have a very strong spring training.

Roach appeared in 16 games last season, and put up a 4.75 ERA and 1.68 WHIP over 30.1 innings. His K/BB ratio was not stellar, sitting at 17:15 in the majors. Stults stumbled in the first half of 2014, but turned things around in August and September. The team apparently decided that two months of value was not enough to keep him on the major league roster.
