Owings to 15-day DL, Moseley 60-Day DL. Select Thayer
The Padres have placed Micah Owings on the 15-day Disabled List with a strained right forearm. In addition, Dustin Moseley has been placed on the 60-day Disabled List and have selected RHP Dale Thayer from Tuscon. Yesterday, Moseley had season-ending surgery to repair his strained right shoulder (throwing arm). Owings in his six relief appearances for the Padres has a 2.79 ERA in 9.2 innings.
Thayer, 31, was selected from Triple-A Tuscon but he has made 23 major league relief appearances while with the Tampa Bay Rays between 2009 and 2010 and with the NY Mets (2011). During that time he posted a 5.88 ERA in 26 innings of work. In Tuscon he has only allowed one run in 8.1 innings of work.
