Padres reinstate Sanchez from DL, recall Quackenbush

ATLANTA (AP) The San Diego Padres have reinstated catcher Hector Sanchez from the seven-day concussion disabled list and recalled right-hander Kevin Quackenbush from Triple-A El Paso.

Sanchez, who is expected to share time with Austin Hedges and Luis Torrens, and Quackenbush are with the team for Friday night's game at Atlanta. Sanchez started and left a game at the Dodgers on April 6 after taking a foul ball off his face mask.

Quackenbush had a 3.92 ERA in a career-high 59 2-3 innings with San Diego in 2016.

The Padres optioned outfielder Jabari Blash and right-hander Jake Esch to Triple-A El Paso. Blash was 0 for 8 in four games.
