Padres C Barrett placed on 15-day DL with strained ligament in elbow

SAN FRANCISCO -- San Diego Padres placed catcher Michael Barrett on the 15-day disabled list with a strained ligament in his right elbow before the Padres' game against the San Francisco Giants on Tuesday night.

Barrett injured the elbow during the Padres' 8-4 victory over the Giants on Monday night. He's hitting .250 with three runs and two walks in three games this season.

Catcher Colt Morton was recalled from Double-A San Antonio to take his place on the 25-man roster. Morton appeared in one game with the Padres last year as a pinch hitter.
