Brett Tomko rejoined the Padres on Friday six days after he was placed on unconditional waivers by the Royals, as reported by the Associated Press. Tomko said he spoke with several teams and chose the Padres because he lives in suburban Poway. ?It came down to here and ?people will think I?m crazy? the Yankees,? Tomko said before the Padres played the Seattle Mariners. ?It definitely was enticing, but like I told them, it?s nice to be home. I mean, to be able to pitch at home is always a great thing.?
