Padres place Alonso on DL, select Goebbert

AP - Sports

SAN DIEGO (AP) -- The San Diego Padres placed first baseman Yonder Alonso on the 15-day disabled list Thursday, retroactive to Tuesday, because of tendinitis in his right wrist.

To take his place on the roster, the Padres selected outfielder Jake Goebbert from Triple-A El Paso.

Goebbert's first appearance will be his big league debut. He was acquired from Oakland on May 15 along with right-hander Ronald Herrera in exchange for infielder-outfielder Kyle Blanks.

Goebbert was hitting .270 with five homers and 18 RBIs in 32 games with El Paso.

Alonso was hitting .210 with five homers and 22 RBIs.
