The 25-year-old De La Cruz made three appearances for the Padres this season and posted a 5.40 ERA. He spent the rest of the year at Triple-A Portland, where he went 2-6 with a 3.12 ERA in 48 games (four starts).
You remember De La Cruz, he was part of the Tigers - Marlins deal that sent Cabrera and Willis to Detroit. He played in six games for us in 2008 and even started one while logging a very impressive 18.00 ERA. The Padres claimed him off waivers and the Marlins said okay, he is yours.
Floyd, a former All-Star, is reaching the end of his career. Next season he will 37 years old. However, that doesn't mean some team won't take a chance on him as a left-handed bat off the bench.
