Padres Place Myers on DL
SAN DIEGO (AP) _ The San Diego Padres placed catcher Greg Myers on the 15-day disabled list Thursday with a sprained left hand and recalled Mandy Romero from Class AAA Las Vegas.
Myers hurt his wrist when he tried to tag former Padres pitcher Sean Bergman in San Diego’s 8-2 loss to the Houston Astros. He was hitting .235 with two homers and 13 RBIs in 32 games.
Romero, 30, made his big-league debut for the Padres last season. He was hitting .290 with eight homers and 22 RBIs in 40 games for Las Vegas. Last year with the Padres, Romero hit .208 with two homers and four RBIs in 21 games.
