Padres promote Cedeno to replace Cabrera
SAN DIEGO (AP)
Cedeno was signed to a minor league contract Saturday and played in two games for Lake Elsinore before Tuesday's move.
He was with the Houston Astros before being released late last month.
Cabrera, San Diego's only All-Star this season, was suspended for 50 games on Monday by Major League Baseball for his relationship to Biogenesis of America, a Florida anti-aging clinic accused of distributing banned performance-enhancing drugs.
Cabrera admitted Monday to taking a banned substance for four days in the spring of 2012. He didn't identify the substance.
Logan Forsythe started at shortstop Tuesday night against Baltimore. Manager Bud Black said Cedeno and Alexi Amarista also will be in the mix.
