Several San Diego Padres To Rehab In El Paso With Chihuahuas
The El Paso Chihuahuas return home today to begin an eight game home-stand against the Sacramento River Cats and the Fresno Grizzlies. Part of the attraction of Triple-A baseball is when fans get to see a Major League Baseball player rehab in their city. El Paso will get a trio of Padres as they recover from injuries and return to San Diego. Jedd Gyorko, Yonder Alonso, and Everth Cabrera are all in town for the next few days as they return to the big leagues.
Gyorko is recovering from plantar faciitis on his left foot, Alonso has been dealing with right wrist tendinitis, and Cabrera has been shelved with a left hamstring strain. The Chihuahuas could use an offensive spark after losing their last three games in Fresno. The team begins the week in second place in the Pacific Coast League's Pacific Southern Division, nine games behind Las Vegas.
