Scratch Vicente Padilla off the list of 5th starter candidates and add him to the list of relievers.Bobby Valentine has moved Padilla to the bullpen, where he will pitch from beginning tomorrow.

Valentine said Padilla appeared OK with the news that he would be working as a reliever.
 
“You’d have to ask him. I thought it was fine,” Valentine said. “Seemed like ‘OK, OK I’m ready to pitch.’
 
“But he explained that he’s really feel guy. And a lot of time feel guys need some pitches to get the feel.

Bobby Valentine said that Padilla will still be a candidate to start in the future.

Just bring Tim Wakefield out of retirement to fill the spot and let's be done with it. Anything is better than this.
