SAN DIEGO (AP) -- The San Diego Padres have recalled outfielder Jaff (pronounced "Jeff") Decker from Triple-A Tucson and placed center fielder Cameron Maybin on the 15-day disabled list, retroactive to Monday, with a tear in the posterior cruciate ligament in his left knee.

Maybin was hurt Sunday in Colorado and is expected to be out six to 10 weeks. Manager Bud Black says only time will tell if Maybin will need surgery. Maybin was reinstated from the 15-day disabled list on Saturday after being out since April 17 with an impingement in his right wrist.

Decker earned his first big league promotion. He hit.240 with five home runs and 20 RBIs in 58 games with Tucson. He was a supplemental-round selection (42nd overall) in the 2008 draft.
