Tim Federowicz had his contract selected from Triple-A Nashville ahead of Friday's game against the Athletics. He did not play in Friday's 8-0 loss to the Athletics.
Federowicz slashed .169/.224/.366 with four homers and seven RBI over 28 games this season with Texas. He figures to come off the bench.
Tim Federowicz went 1-for-3 with a run scored and two strikeouts during Tuesday’s 5-3 win over the Texas Rangers.
Federowicz filled in for Max Stassi after he was hit by a pitch on his right hand during the first inning. Stassi is considered to be day-to-day, but in the event that the injury knocks Stassi out for a longer period of time Federowicz is an excellent pickup in most leagues.
An MRI in Phoenix on Monday revealed a lateral meniscus tear. According to Padres manager Bud Black, Tim Federowicz will undergo arthroscopic surgery.
There is now a vacancy as back up catcher in San Diego. Non-roster invitee Wil Nieves could get the job or the Padres might talk to the Cubs about Welington Castillo or the Blue Jays about Dioner Navarro. It is unlikely that star prospect Austin Hedges will be rushed just to be a back up.
