Padres roster move: Yonder Alonso to 15-day DL, Jake Goebbert called up

USA TODAY Sports

As expected, Yonder Alonso was placed on the 15-day DL; taking his place on the 25-man roster will be outfielder and first baseman Jake Goebbert. The next game Goebbert plays for the Padres will be his first; he has been a member of the AAA El Paso Chihuahuas since being acquired from Oakland in the Kyle Blanks trade.

In his article on the matter over at the team's official site, the indispensable Brock reports that Yonder's latest ailment is unrelated to the hand problems that derailed his 2013 season, as per Bud Black.

The 26-year-old Goebbert will be making his big league debut in his sixth year in pro ball. In 265 AAA plate appearances this year in 63 games split nearly evenly between Sacramento and El Paso, he has hit .264/ .377/ .482 with 11 doubles and 11 homers.
