Hairston on DL with strained hamstring
To fill his spot on the roster, the Padres selected the contract of outfielder Chris Denorfia from Triple-A Portland.
In addition, right-hander Chris Young was transferred from the 15-day DL to the 60-day DL. He's been out since April 12, retroactive to April 7, with a strained right shoulder.
Hairston was hurt Saturday night in a loss to the Los Angeles Dodgers. He was hitting .247 with six home runs and 14 RBIs.
Denorfia hit .306 with Portland, with two home runs and 12 RBIs. He played parts of four big league seasons with the Cincinnati Reds and Oakland As.
