Forsythe, Maybin are ready for game action

SAN DIEGO -- A pair of not-so injured Padres are heading to Arizona to play in games Friday, as infielder Logan Forsythe and outfielder Cameron Maybin work their way back from the disabled list.

Forsythe, out since March 31, retroactive to March 22, because of plantar fasciitis in his right foot, will head to the team's temporary workout facility in Surprise and will serve as the designated hitter in Friday's game.

Maybin, on the disabled list since April 17 with right wrist impingement, worked out with the Padres on Wednesday. He'll head to Tucson on Wednesday and play for the Padres' Triple-A affiliate on Friday.

Forsythe is on the 60-day disabled list while Maybin is on the 15-day DL.

"Back in action," Maybin said. "I'm ready to do some baseball activities. I've been feeling good and I'm ready to get out of here and get back on track."

Forsythe figures to spend considerably more time in Arizona than Maybin because he's missed so much time.

Maybin, who was hitting .091 in 33 at-bats at the time of his injury in April, might get around 30 or so at-bats with Tucson, though Padres manager Bud Black will have a better idea once he starts playing.

"It's good to see Cam and Logan playing," Black said.
