The Padres originally called-up Jake Goebbert earlier this season when first baseman Yonder Alonso went on the DL with tendinitis in his right wrist.

Jake Goebbert was solid in his first major league stint , batting .250 with one homerun and three RBIs in his 48 at-bats with the San Diego Padres. Goebbert has continued to hit will in Triple-A El Paso, batting .296 with 14 home runs and 60 RBI.

With the Padres playing well and Yonder Alonso, Tommy Medica, Yasmani GrandalYangervis Solarte, Seth Smith, Abraham AlmonteWill Venable and Rymer Liriano taking most of the playing time in the OF and 1B, it will be difficult for Jake Goebbert to recieve any significant playing time.

Goebbert’s stay with the Padres may not be for long, as suspended center-fielder Cameron Maybin is close to returning from his 25-game suspension. You should expect to see Jake Gobbert on the roster full-time next month, as his performance with the Padres ad in Triple-A this season merits a spot on the expanded roster in September.
