Short hops

• Hundley was placed on the 15-day DL on Friday with a right knee contusion and irritation. According to Black, Hundley had been feeling something for about three weeks, and an MRI revealed "irritation."

Hundley was recalled to the Padres on Aug. 9 after spending all of July with Triple-A Tucson to reverse the offensive struggles that plagued him during the first few months of the season. Hundley is hitting .157 in 58 big league games this year, but was leading the Majors in runners caught stealing when he was sent down June 30.

• Pitchers Anthony Bass (right shoulder) and Andrew Cashner (right lat) are both making progress in their rehab. Both hurlers threw simulated games at the Padres' facility in Peoria, Ariz., on Friday, and Black said they may be ready for rehab appearances with Triple-A Tucson pending the outcome of those sessions.

• Closer Huston Street, who was placed on the 15-day DL with a left calf strain Aug. 11, is still limping heavily and struggling to walk. Black said that as of Friday, there was no specific timetable for his All-Star closer's return, but that he expects him to be out longer than just the required 15 days.

"This is not going to be 15 days; he's not pitching on the 16th day," Black said. "This is a calf strain. ... It's legit."
