Padres Place INF Logan Forsythe on 15-Day DL
The San Diego Padres today announced they have placed infielder Logan Forsythe on the 15-day disabled list with a left foot sesamoid fracture. In addition, the club has reassigned right-handed pitcher Brad Boxberger to minor league camp. Executive Vice President/General Manager Josh Byrnes made the announcements.
Forsythe, 25, underwent a procedure on March 9 to have the medial sesamoid bone in his left foot removed. The procedure was performed by Dr. Heinz Hoenecke at the Scripps Surgery Center Carmel Valley. The expected recovery time from the date of his procedure was estimated at six to eight weeks.
With today’s announcements, the Padres currently have 40 players in Major League camp, including nine non-roster invitees.
