Maybin placed on DL, Aaron Cunningham gets the call

Cameron Maybin has been out for the last four ballgames with a sore right knee and will now be placed on the disabled list to rest his knee. To replace Maybin on the roster, the Padres have called up outfielder Aaron Cunningham from Triple-A Tucson.

Cunningham is batting .292 with 5 HR and 42 RBI down at Tucson and would be splitting time with Blake Tekotte and Chris Denorfia in the outfield. He will be a good bat off the bench and can play all outfield positions if needed.
