In addition, the club has optioned left-handed pitcher Wade LeBlanc, outfielder Aaron Cunningham and infielder Everth Cabrera to Triple-A Tucson, reassigned left-handed pitcher Randy Flores, catcher Guillermo Quiroz and infielder Logan Forsythe to minor league camp and placed infielder/outfielder Eric Patterson on the 15-day disabled list retroactive to March 22 with a strained left hamstring. The club has also released infielder Oscar Salazar.

Cedric Hunter, 23, hit .435 (10-for-23) with four doubles, one triple, one home run, 10 RBI, six runs scored and three walks in 16 games for the Padres this Spring before being optioned to Tucson on March 15.
