The San Diego Padres today announced that Rule 5 Draft selection George Kontos has been returned to the New York Yankees. Executive Vice President/General Manager Jed Hoyer made the announcement.

Kontos, 25, was the 11th player selected in the 2010 Rule 5 Draft. He split the 2010 season between Single-A Tampa, Double-A Trenton and Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre in the Yankees organization, combining to go 0-4 with a 3.60 ERA (18 ER/45.0 IP) in 24 appearances (two starts). Originally signed by the Yankees as a fifth-round selection in the 2006 First-Year Player Draft, Kontos has gone 21-29 with a 3.47 ERA (202 ER/440.1 IP) in 97 games (73 starts) over parts of five minor league seasons. He has recorded 436 strikeouts compared to 151 walks, posting a 2.89 strikeout/walk ratio and averaging 8.9 strikeouts/9.0 IP.

With today's transactions, the Padres now have 46 players in Major League camp.
