Padres send right-hander Brazelton to Triple-A

CHICAGO -- The Padres placed catcher Rob Bowen on the 15-day
disabled list with a sprained left thumb and recalled
outfielder-first baseman Paul McAnulty from Triple-A Portland on
Friday.

The club also recalled right-handed pitcher Jon Adkins from
Portland and outrighted pitcher Dewon Brazelton to Triple-A.

Bowen was hit by Prince Fielder's foul tip with two outs in the
fourth inning of Thursday's game against Milwaukee. He caught the
last two pitches of the inning, then left the game. Bowen is
batting .435 (10-for-23) with a home run and seven RBI in 18
games.

McAnulty was batting .278 with eight homers and 19 RBI for
Portland. Adkins was 1-0 with seven saves and had not allowed an
earned run in 12 innings with the Beavers. Brazelton is 0-2 with a
12.00 ERA in nine games (two starts) for the Padres.
