It took only 28 games for Orlando Hudson to tie his career-high with 10 steals at age 33, but he won’t be doing any more running for a while after the Padres placed him on the disabled list with a strained right hamstring.
Hudson, who tweaked his hamstring in yesterday’s game, has scored just nine runs this season despite a .360 on-base percentage and 10 steals, which says a lot about how awful the Padres’ lineup has been.
San Diego called up 24-year-old Logan Forsythe from Triple-A to replace Hudson on the roster after the 2008 first-round pick hit .291 with a .410 on-base percentage and .488 slugging percentage in 22 games. Forsythe doesn’t bring much power the table, but draws a ton of walks and has a career OBP of .408.
