Padrs Call Up Blake Tekotte

After the Padres 5-3 win in San Francisco Friday night, Padres beat reporter Corey Brock reported that Jeremy Hermida is headed to the disabled list with a “strained hip flexor,” and that the Padres have recalled outfielder Blake Tekotte from AAA Tucson.

Hermida has gotten into 13 games for the Padres this year, hitting .250 with a pair of RBI’s. He made the team out of Spring Training despite being a non-roster invitee. For his career, Hermida has posted a triple slash line of .257/.334/.415, and hit a career-high 18 homers with the Marlins in 2007.

Tekotte, who is 24, was playing with the Tucson Padres at the time of his call-up. For the year, Tekotte has put up a triple slash line of .278/.305/.494, with 11 extra-base hits in 83 plate appearances. Tekotte had a cup of coffee with the 2011 Padres, hitting just .176 with one RBI in 19 games. Tekotte was the Padres 3rd round pick in 2008.
