Player Notes
Padres activated LHP Matt Thornton from the 15-day disabled list.

Advice: Thornton had been out all season while rebounding from Achilles tendinitis. The veteran left-hander will work in a setup role for the Padres.

Matt Thornton (heel) pitched a scoreless inning Tuesday in a rehab appearance with High-A Lake Elsinore.

Advice: Much better than his rehab debut Saturday, when he yielded two hits and an unearned run in one inning of work. Thornton is on track to join the Padres' bullpen this weekend in Arizona after missing the first eight weeks of the 2016 season with Achilles tendinitis. The veteran left-hander had a cool 2.18 ERA in 41 1/3 innings of relief last season for the Nationals.

Matt Thornton (heel) is on track to join the Padres' bullpen this weekend in Arizona.

Advice: That update comes from Padres manager Andy Green, via Dennis Lin of the San Diego Union-Tribune. Thornton allowed an unearned run on two hits in his rehab debut Saturday with High-A Lake Elsinore. He was scheduled to make his second rehab appearance Tuesday. The veteran lefty has been on the disabled list since the end of spring training because of tendinitis in his left Achilles tendon.
