SAN DIEGO (AP) — Padres catcher Yorvit Torrealba has been placed on the restricted list for personal reasons and is expected to be away from the team for at least three days.

Team officials say Torrealba is tending to a family matter.

To take his roster spot, the Padres recalled catcher Dusty Ryan from Triple-A Portland.

Torrealba and Nick Hundley have split time at catcher this year, with each starting 25 games. Torrealba is hitting with one home run and 14 RBIs.

The 25-year-old Ryan was hitting .118 with three homers and nine RBIs at Portland. Over parts of two major league seasons with the Detroit Tigers (2008-09), Ryan hit .257 with two homers and 11 RBIs.
