Welcome to The Show: Pitcher Joe Wieland to join Padres
Word spread quickly through Twitter Tuesday night that Triple-A pitcher Joe Wieland would be joining the Padres after he was pulled from his start after two strong innings. He will most likely be starting Saturday night at Dodgers Stadium in his Major League debut.
