The San Diego Padres today placed catcher Miguel Ojeda on the 15-day disabled list with a left wrist…
The Strength of Ojeda!
"It's a big, big hit. I'm trying to take my best shot every time I go up to hit," Ojeda said.
Otsuka continues to dominate, throwing two perfect innings and lowering his ERA to 0.82.
"He's been outstanding," manager Bruce Bochy said. "We needed someone to shut them down and he did it. He's saved us a few times this year.
"We can't do much better than Otsuka and Linebrink," Bochy said. "So I'm not sure where (Rod) Beck will fit." Rod Beck is on his way back. He is in Peoria strengthening his arm. He hopes to be ready by mid-May.
More than 39,500 fans per game packed PETCO Park for the inaugural nine-game homestand earlier this month, ranking PETCO Park fourth among the highest- attended new ballpark openings since 1991 (behind only Arizona, Baltimore, and San Francisco).
"The fan feedback we've received has been overwhelmingly positive," said Dick Freeman, Padres President and CEO. "But we continue to listen to our fans and take a very close look at all aspects of the ballpark experience. Accordingly, the Padres have already begun collecting 'real time' information from ballpark guests, conducting a series of 'intercept' surveys throughout this season."
Incidentally, Monday's crowd was the lowest ever at Petco. 25,438 turned out for the affair with the Expos, more than 10,000 less than the previous low at the new park.
