The San Diego Padres said Monday that they have recalled outfielder Aaron Cunningham from Triple-A Portland and optioned right-handed pitcher Luis Perdomo to the same Portland club following Sunday’s game in San Diego.
Cunningham, 24, is making his third stint with the Padres and has gone 24-for-77 (.312) with nine doubles, one triple, one home run, 13 RBI and 11 runs scored in 30 games this year. He hit .326 (15-for-46) with seven doubles, nine RBI and five runs scored in 17 games during his second stint, including a career-high 11-game hitting streak. With the Beavers, he has hit .251 (68-for-271) with 17 doubles, three triples, seven home runs, 45 RBI and 30 runs scored in 80 games this season.
Perdomo, 26, made his second stint with the Padres this season, allowing one run in 1.0 inning in yesterday’s game. The right-hander was previously recalled on May 22 but optioned back to Triple-A Portland on May 23 without making an appearance. In 55 outings, three starts, for the Beavers this season he has gone 3-5 with a save, a 3.20 ERA (28 ER/78.2 IP), a .247 (73-for-296) opponents batting average and 49 strikeouts against 31 walks. He made his Major League debut last season for the Padres and went 1-0 with a 4.80 ERA (32 ER/60.0 IP) over 35 appearances.
