Edmonds to disabled list
The Padres officially set their 25-man Opening Day roster by putting center fielder Jim Edmonds on the disabled list retroactive to March 21.
Edmonds, who remained behind in Peoria, Ariz., at the club's spring training complex, has not played in a major league exhibition game since straining his right calf muscle on March 6.
Edmonds will be eligible to return in the sixth game of the regular season.
Edmonds, 37, had hoped to be on the Opening Day roster, but Black said he didn't want Edmonds “pushing it.”
Edmonds is to return to San Diego on Monday and play two games with Single-A Lake Elsinore on Thursday and Friday.
