Padres place Blanks on DL

The San Diego Padres placed infielder Kyle Blanks on the 15-day disabled list on Saturday.

Blanks has a left shoulder strain and to take his spot the team selected pitcher Joe Wieland from Triple-A Tucson.

Blanks has one hit in five at-bats with a walk over four games this season, his fourth in the majors.
