Blake Tekotte has been called up to replace the incumbent Will Venable. Venable was sent down to work on his swing after hitting .229. Tekotte was called up to sit(?)! Blake is a top prospect(one of the top 30!) and should not be sitting! Unfortunately Chris Denorfia is now the starting RF. Tekotte just turned 24 yesterday and was called up due to his LH Bat. Samuel Deduno was designated for assignment to create space on the 40-man roster. San Diego now has 10 days to trade, release, or place Deduno on waivers. If he clears waivers he would be outrighted to AAA.
