Padres to place Everth Cabrera on the disabled list

Initially the Padres indicated that they’d wait a few days to see how Everth Cabrera‘s hamstring injury felt before making a disabled list decision, but Corey Brock of MLB.com reports that the shortstop will be placed on the DL before tonight’s game.

To replace him on the roster the Padres are calling up journeyman Brooks Conrad, who isn’t a shortstop, which means the fill-in will likely be Alexi Amarista shifting over from second base.

Cabrera had a very poor first half, hitting .218 with a .546 OPS that’s nearly 200 points below his 2013 mark and 100 points off his career norm. And even his base-stealing has declined, with seven caught stealings to go with 13 successful steals after he swiped 44 bases in 2012 and 37 bases last year.

    THE Brooks Conrad? They might be better of with Lauren Conrad, I’m pretty sure she has a lot of experience with second base.

    They also picked up Irving Falu from the Brewers. With a Brooks Conrad/Irving Falu tandem, the shortstop position is secure.
