Padres: Bruce Bochy, the winningest manager in team history, agreed to terms on a two-year contract extension. Bochy's contract had been set to expire at season's end.
Bochy is 821-852 in 11 seasons with San Diego. He led the Padres to NL West titles in 1996 and 1998, the year he led the team to the World Series. He has been with Padres for 23 consecutive seasons as a player, coach or manager.
San Diego also placed starting RHP Adam Eaton, their best pitcher at 9-2, and C Ramon Hernandez on the 15-day disabled list. Eaton has a strained middle finger on his pitching hand, and Hernandez has a sprained left wrist.
To take their roster spots, RHP Tim Redding was activated from the DL and 1B Paul McAnulty was recalled from Class AA Mobile.
