Days after being designated for assignment by the San Diego Padres, veteran right-hander Jeff Suppan has elected free agency. Suppan was designated to make room for Padres top catching prospect Yasmani Grandal.

San Diego signed Suppan in February and the 37-year-old made six starts for the Padres this season. Over his 30 2/3 innings pitched, Suppan maintained an ERA and WHIP of 5.28 and 1.533 with 2.1 SO/9 and 3.8 BB/9.

Before making his debut for the Padres, Suppan had pitched for San Diego’s Triple-A affiliate. Over his two starts spanning 6 2/3 innings, Suppan surrendered nine runs on 17 hits.

Suppan’s brief stint with the Padres was his first major league action since 2010. That year Suppan spent the season pitching for the Milwaukee Brewers and St. Louis Cardinals, posting an ERA and WHIP of 5.06 and 1.648 over his 30 appearances including 15 starts.

Suppan spent the 2011 season with the Royals Triple-A affiliate, maintaining an ERA and WHIP of 4.78 and 1.431 over his 165 2/3 innings pitched.
