SAN DIEGO — The San Diego Padres have put pitcher Micah Owings on the 15-day disabled list with a strained right forearm and called up right-hander Dale Thayer from Triple-A Tucson.
The team made the moves Thursday before playing the Washington Nationals.
Owings, a Gainesville High graduate, has a 2.79 ERA in six relief appearances this season.
Thayer had thrown 8 1-3 scoreless innings in seven relief outings with Tucson. He has pitched in 23 major league games with Tampa Bay (2009-10) and the New York Mets (2011), going 0-3 with a 5.88 ERA in 26 innings.
To make room for Thayer on the 40-man roster, the Padres transferred right-hander Dustin Moseley to the 60-day DL. Moseley had season-ending shoulder surgery Wednesday.
