Blanks has a muscle tear and will be out longer than expected. There's no timeframe for his return.

Blanks had been nursing a calf injury. Look for Nate Freiman to be around for quite a while.

The San Diego Padres acquired outfielder Jake Goebbert on Thursday in a deal that sent Blanks to the Oakland Athletics. The Padres also will get another player to be determined or cash in the deal.

Blanks played in five games with the Padres this season, going 2 for 10.

The San Diego Padres recalled Blanks from Triple-A El Paso on Monday in an attempt to help revive their struggling offense.

Blanks, who has played parts of the last five seasons with San Diego, hit nine homers in 83 at-bats for El Paso and is expected to add punch to a Padres lineup that came into Monday's games ranked last in the majors in several offensive categories.
