Nick Hundley to return Wednesday …
Found out late last night that catcher Nick Hundley, who hasn’t played a game since June 17 because of a small fracture of the ulna bone near his left wrist, will join the Padres later today here in Milwaukee.
Hundley played for Triple-A Portland on Tuesday in Albuquerque and went 4-for-16 in five rehab games with the Beavers. He could play as soon as today, though it will more likely be Thursday when he’ll catch Cesar Carrillo, who will be making his Major League debut.
Hundley was hitting .236 with three home runs and 11 RBIs in 41 games before the injury. I assume the corresponding roster move will be to send catcher Eliezer Alfonzo to Portland with Hundley sharing time with veteran Henry Blanco.
Cheers, Corey Brock
