LeBlanc to Triple-A, Perdomo Off the DL

The San Diego Padres plan to option pitcher Wade LeBlanc to Triple-A Portland and bring pitcher Luis Perdomo off the disabled list.

San Diego manager Bud Black made the announcement after the Padres' 9-3 loss in Seattle on Thursday, although the moves aren't expected to become official until Friday.

LeBlanc was the losing pitcher Thursday. He lasted just 1 1-3 innings, giving up a leadoff home run to Ichiro Suzuki and a bases-clearing double to Rob Johnson as part of a four-run first inning for the Mariners.

Perdomo has been on the disabled list since June 8 with a strained left knee. He's 1-0 with a 5.06 ERA in 14 games this season.
