Steve Watkins, 28, missed the first 15 games of the season with a strained left oblique and returns to the Beavers after a two-year absence.

In parts of two previous seasons with Portland (2003-04), Watkins, who re-signed with the Padres as a minor league free agent on Nov. 8, 2006, is 6-3 with a 3.07 ERA in 36 appearances (6 starts).
