The San Diego Padres today placed catcher Miguel Ojeda on the 15-day disabled list with a left wrist…
Robinson, Ojeda and Osuna return to San Diego
Robinson was used as a late inning defensive replacement on Wednesday, just as General Manager Kevin Towers expected.
"He'll be used mostly like he was the first time he was here," Towers said. "He'll give us late-inning defensive help and he'll pinch-run."
Miguel Ojeda, 29, went 5-for-19 (.263) with two home runs and three RBI in a five-game rehab assignment with the Beavers. He was placed on the 15-day disabled list on August 16, a day after he was hit by a pitch on the left wrist in the sixth inning of a 7-2 win over Cincinnati at Great American Ball Park. Before being placed on the DL, Ojeda hit .248 (34-for-137) with two doubles, six home runs and 22 RBI in 50 games for the Padres.
Antonio Osuna, 31, posted a 2.45 ERA (2 ER/7.1 IP) with 12 strikeouts in a seven-game rehab assignment with the Lake Elsinore Storm. He was placed on the 15-day disabled list on June 16, retroactive to June 11 with a right elbow strain and missed 72 games. Osuna, who signed with the Padres on February 5, has missed a total of 89 games over two stints on the disabled list this season. Over 18 games with the Padres, he has posted a 1-1 record with a 4.12 ERA (9 ER/19.2 IP). Over parts of 10 Major League seasons with Los Angeles (1995-2000), the Chicago White Sox (2001-2002), the New York Yankees (2003) and San Diego (2004), Osuna owns a 35-29 record while posting a 3.61 ERA (188 ER/ 469.1 IP) with 21 saves.
