Miguel Ojeda, 29, suffered his wrist injury after being hit by a pitch from Luke Hudson in the sixth inning of yesterday's 7-2 win over Cincinnati at Great American Ball Park. He was placed on the DL having hit .248 (34-for-137) with two doubles, six home runs and 22 RBI in 50 games for the Padres.
Signed as a free agent on May 17, 2003, Ojeda has batted .241 (67-for-278) with eight doubles, 10 home runs and 44 RBIs in 111 career games with San Diego. Today's transaction marks Ojeda's first career stint on the disabled list.
Humberto Quintero, 25, appeared in 18 games for the Padres earlier this season, batting .254 (16-for-63) with three doubles, two home runs and eight RBIs. Originally recalled from Portland on June 21, Quintero owned a .319 batting average (74-for-232) with 21 doubles, four home runs and 27 RBIs in 62 games with the Beavers.
Acquired from the Chicago White Sox with outfielder Alex Fernandez in exchange for infielder D'Angelo Jimenez on July 12, 2002, Quintero has hit .244 (21-for-86) with three doubles, two homers and 10 RBIs in 61 career games with the Padres.
