Padres place 2B Gyorko on DL with plantar fasciitis; reinstate LH Stults from bereavement list

  • Print

SAN DIEGO - The San Diego Padres have placed second baseman Jedd Gyorko on the 15-day disabled list with plantar fasciitis in his left foot.

The move, announced Friday, is retroactive to Wednesday.

Gyorko has struggled after signing a $35 million, six-year contract extension in April. He's hitting just .162.

Manager Bud Black says Gyorko had an anti-inflammatory shot, will use a walking boot and will wear a strap when he sleeps to keep the arch stretched out.

Taking Gyorko's roster spot is left-hander Eric Stults, who was activated from the bereavement list. He's scheduled to start Sunday against Washington.

The Padres will make two more roster moves Saturday, when right-hander Andrew Cashner is due to be activated from the disabled list. He's been out with a sore elbow. Cashner is scheduled to start that night.
