ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (AP) - The San Diego Padres have recalled catcher Dusty Ryan from Triple-A Portland and optioned infielder Lance Zawadzki to the Pacific Coast League club.
The moves were announced before the Padres played Tuesday night at Tampa Bay.
Ryan was previously recalled on May 31, but didn't appear in a game before returning to Portland.
Zawadzki hit .200 with one RBI in 20 games over two stints this season with San Diego.

The Minnesota Twins raised some eyebrows Sunday when they brought Fernando Rodney into the game in the fifth inning, an unconventional spot for a closer who had not pitched that early in a game in more than a dozen years.
