Share/Save/Bookmark

SAN DIEGO — The San Diego Padres have reinstated shortstop Everth Cabrera from the 15-day disabled list and designated left-hander Jason Lane for assignment.

Cabrera started Tuesday night's game against St. Louis. He had been out since July 2 with a strained left hamstring.

The switch-hitter is hitting .218 with three home runs and 16 RBIs.

On Monday, the 37-year-old Lane, an outfielder turned pitcher, became the oldest San Diego player to make his big league debut as a starter. He had been called up from Triple-A to start for ailing Ian Kennedy.
