The Padres have claimed lefty Bobby LaFromboise off of waivers from the Mariners, reports Corey Brock of (via Twitter). He has been optioned to Triple-A, Brock adds.

LaFromboise was designated by the Mariners to create 40-man space for Chris Young. At age 27, he has only ten MLB appearances under his belt, but has posted an intriguing stat line in the upper minors for a southpaw. He worked to a 3.39 ERA last year and a 1.36 mark in 2012, both in over 60 frames of work. Better, he did so with over 9.0 K/9 and less then 3.0 BB/9.
