The Padres have brought up Robert Fick and Ramon Vasquez from the Portland Beavers. Both will be eligible for postseason play.
Sent down were Humberto Quintero and Marty McLeary.
Fick had been swinging a hot stick since being picked up by the Padres. He was batting .380 with Portland and was 9-for-18 over his past four games. He had two homers, four doubles and six RBI's. Fick has played first base and will also be looked at as a backup catcher until Miguel Ojeda is eligible to come off the DL.
Vasquez has been on a tear of late. After beginning his Portland season in a funk, Vasquez has hit safely in 14 of his past 17 games and has raised his average from .244 to right under .300. He is a left-handed hitter off the bench and can play a multitude of infield positions.
McLeary saw action in three games, going 3.2 innings. He allowed six runs on seven hits -- two of those leaving the park.
McLeary was dominant with Portland, giving up just one run in his previous 13 appearances before being called up. He saved 11 games during that span and earned a win after blowing a save.
Quintero batted .257 in 21 games for the Padres. He had three doubles, two homers and ten RBI's. He has only seen action in three games since his mid-August callup.
Quintero hit .319 with Portland this year and has hit safely in 21 of his past 23 games with the Beavers, including a stretch where he had hits in 14 straight, going 224-for-53 during that stretch.
