Mendoza back in Sox system

Luis Mendoza has returned to the Sox organization after being plucked off the waiver wire by San Diego three weeks ago. He has been assigned to his former club, the Wilimington Blue Rocks. Mendoza was waived on July 8 to make room on the 40-man roster for newly-acquired 2B Alex Cora. San Diego quickly picked up the 6-3, 210 righthander and assigned him to their Single-A affiliate in Lake Elsinore, CA. However, Mendoza's stay in Cali would not last long, as he was soon designated for assignment on July 24 to make room for recent Padre call-up Craig Breslow. The Sox promptly re-acquired their former prospect soon thereafter on July 27. Mendoza struggled in his brief stint on the west coast, going 0-1 with a 9.28 ERA in two starts for the Storm. He returns to Wilmington, where he went 3-4 with an ERA of 5.36 and 42 K's in 84.2 IP prior to his departure. The move allows for Mendoza to return to the organization that signed him as a free agent in 2000 at ripe age of 16.
