Padres - DLed Hernandez, Eaton

San Diego Padres - Placed C Ramon Hernandez and P Adam Eaton on the 15-day disabled list - recalled 1B Paul McAnulty; activated P Tim Redding.

This isn’t as bad as it sounds; the Padres have been smart in more than one way here.  Eaton was taken out of a game last week due to a strained finger and the Padres are being very careful with him, no pitching through the pain, no changing mechanics to blow out arm or anything like that.  It stinks to lose Eaton in the middle of his breakout season, but he’ll be back in a week or so.

The Padres have also handled the Hernandez situation very intelligently, actually using their emergency catcher (Rob Fick) in an emergency instead of freaking out and DFAing a prospect to find the first unemployed former major league catcher whose phone hasn’t been disconnected.  Fick is not a good catcher, but he and Ojeda can cover the position adequately while he’s gone.  And it has the side benefit of getting to add an actual hitter just in case Nevin has to go on the DL after all.

Rotoworld was surprised that it was McAnulty and not Ben Johnson, and I'll have to admit that I was as well. I guess they valued the RHB more than the defense and level advantage.

They chose McAnulty because they wanted a lefty off the bench since their other lefty bench players are now starting due to injuries. And so last night when a pinch hitter was needed (8th inning, bases loaded, 1 out, trailing by 1) they use McAnulty against a righty instead of Nady, which didn't sit well with me. He made contact, lining out to 2nd, but I'd have preferred Nady there. Either way, hell of a place for your first major league AB.

I meant LHB, though my other comments still stand.

I was fortunate (or smart) enough to get both Javy Lopez and Hernandez in my fantasy league, and they're both on the DL. I hate the world.

I traded Eaton for Joe Nathan the day he got pulled from his start. (Yes the other owner knew about the injury at the time) I just figured even if the injury were to have a small effect in his first couple of starts back, the combination of him missing a couple or 3 starts, having a potential rusty return start, and then just normal regression from a 9-1 record made it time to sell high. (Obviously not my keeper league)

I agree Dan though, very smart move by the Padres to handle this way. For the real life pennant race, this is no big deal for the Padres, but could have been if they did not handle correctly.

You should've asked for Joe Namath instead, shoewiz.
