SAN DIEGO -- The San Diego Padres have activated Nick Hundley from the 15-day disabled list and optioned outfielder Blake Tekotte to Double-A San Antonio.

Hundley has been out since May 5 with a strained muscle in his right side. He was hitting .263 with three home runs and 12 RBIs when he got hurt. He played four games at Triple-A Tucson on a rehab assignment.

Hundley was in the starting lineup against the Colorado Rockies on Wednesday afternoon.

Tekotte was brought up from San Antonio on May 23 and made his big league debut on May 25 against the St. Louis Cardinals. He hit .158 in 10 games.
