Padres place Owings on DL, select Thayer

SAN DIEGO, Calif. – The San Diego Padres today announced they have placed right-handed pitcher Micah Owings on the 15-day disabled list with a strained right forearm and selected right-handed pitcher Dale Thayer from Triple-A Tucson. In addition, the club has transferred right-handed pitcher Dustin Moseley to the 60-day disabled list. Executive Vice President/General Manager Josh Byrnes made the announcements.

Owings, 29, has made six relief appearances for the Padres this season, posting a 2.79 ERA (3 ER/9.2 IP). Signed as a free agent this offseason, he has gone 32-33 with a 4.86 ERA (261 ER/483.0 IP) in 138 games (68 starts) over parts of six seasons with the Arizona Diamondbacks (2007-08, 11), Cincinnati Reds (2009-10) and Padres (2012).

Thayer, 31, has made 23 career Major League relief appearances between the Tampa Bay Rays (2009-10) and New York Mets (2011), going 0-3 with a 5.88 ERA (17 ER/26.0 IP). With Triple-A Tucson this year, he has yet to allow a run over 8.1 innings in seven relief outings.

Moseley, 30, made one start for the Padres before being placed on the DL 4/8 with a strained right shoulder. He underwent season-ending surgery yesterday to repair the shoulder.
