Padres DFA Rougned Odor hours before facing Blue Jays in Toronto

TORONTO (AP) — Infielder Rougned Odor was cut by the struggling San Diego Padres. who activated catcher Luis Campusano from the 60-day injured list before Tuesday night’s game at Toronto.

San Diego selected the contract of outfielder Taylor Kohlwey from Triple- El Paso and recalled infielder Alfonso Rivas from the Chihuahuas. Catcher Austin Nola and utilityman Brandon Dixon were optioned to Triple-A, and right-hander Reiss Knehr was transferred from the 15-day to the 60-day IL.

Odor has been a target of fan ire in Toronto since punching then-Blue Jays slugger José Bautista in a game at Texas in May 2016, sparking a benches-clearing brawl. Toronto eliminated the Rangers from the playoffs in 2015 and 2016.

A 10-year veteran who has also played for Baltimore and the New York Yankees, Odor was batting .210 with four home runs and 18 RBIs in 59 games.

Campusano has not played since April 14 because of a damaged ligament in his left thumb.
