Padres place RHP Kirby Yates on DL
The injury to Yates occurred during Saturday night’s 1-0 loss against the Houston Astros. After going through his warmup routine in the 8th inning and throwing one pitch (an 89 mph fastball), the reliever was clearly in discomfort and left the game.
The injury comes after a very nice start to his season. In five early-season appearances, the right-hander allowed only one hit and struck out five.
