San Diego Padres pinch-hitter Alex Dickerson and Chicago Cubs catcher David Ross watches Dickerson's grand slam off Cubs relief pitcher Adam Warren during the eighth inning of a baseball game Tuesday, May 10, 2016, in Chicago.
The San Diego Padres announced Tuesday afternoon that they have placed Jon Jay on the 15-day disabled list, retroactive to June 20, with a right forearm fracture. Jay hurt his forearm when he was hit by a fastball from the Washington Nationals’ Gio Gonzalez. He was hitting .296 with 35 runs scored for the Padres this season.
The Padres also announced that they have recalled utility man Alex Dickerson from Triple-A El Paso, which will mark his second stint at the big league level this season. On May 10, Dickerson hit his first career home run which was a grand slam against the Cubs in Chicago. He was leading the Pacific Coast League with a .382 average and 1.047 OPS for the Chiahuahuas prior to his call up Tuesday.
