Vincent will be optioned to Triple-A El Paso on Friday.

With the Padres activating Shawn Kelley off the disabled list Friday, they have decided to option Vincent to their Triple-A affiliate in a corresponding move. Vincent allowed two earned runs in one inning of work Thursday to raise his ERA to 6.14 on the season.

Vincent was recalled by the Padres on Friday, MLB.com's Corey Brock reports.

He got off to a bit of a rough start and was sent to Triple-A earlier in the season, but his velocity is where it was last year so there doesn't appear to be anything wrong with him. If Vincent's numbers from 2014 (2.77 FIP and 62 strikeouts in 55 innings) are any indication, he should be able to settle in as a key member of the Padres' bullpen over the rest of the season.

Vincent was optioned to the minor leagues Friday, the Union-Tribune's Dennis Lin reports.

Vincent has pitched in three games already this season, so he was likely unavailable Friday and Saturday anyway. He had a 2.77 FIP and a 28.8 percent K-rate in 2014 and should be back up with the Padres in the near future.

Vincent is yet to allow a run over his 5.2 innings of work this spring. He has struck out eight batters and walked two and carries a 1.24 WHIP.

Vincent figures to be one of the main right-handed specialists in the Padres' bullpen corps with Joaquin Benoit and Kevin Quackenbush slated to be the closer and set-up men. He has a solid K:BB ratio, but is a bit prone to home runs as a flyball pitcher.

Vincent nabbed his first win of the season Monday versus the Rockies, tossing two perfect innings with three strikeouts.

Vincent also induced two groundouts versus one flyout, which is a welcome change from his 0.63 GB/FB rate on the season. Since his activation from the DL on July 18, he has yet to give up a run on five hits and two walks to go with 10 strikeouts in 9.1 innings. His previous struggles seem to have been alleviated, but the occasional hold is likely the sole output that owners can expect as the stretch run plays out.
