Scottsdale, AZ (SportsNetwork.com) - The San Diego Padres have placed catcher Tim Federowicz on the 60-day disabled list.

Federowicz underwent arthroscopic surgery on his right knee on March 13 to repair a lateral meniscus tear.

The 27-year-old backstop hit .113 in 23 games as a reserve for the Dodgers last season, but committed just three errors in 172 chances for a .983 fielding percentage.

The Padres also claimed pitcher Jandel Gustave off outright waivers from the Kansas City Royals.
