Padres Acquire Chris Burke

8:31pm: Dan Hayes of the North County Times says the Padres have arranged to reacquire Chris Burke.  The Padres signed Burke to a minor league deal this offseason but traded him to Seattle on March 25th.'s Corey Brock has the story as well.

1:37pm: According to Tom Krasovic of the San Diego Union-Tribune, Padres rookie shortstop Everth Cabrera may be out for two months due to a hand injury suffered Sunday.  The Padres snagged Cabrera from the Rockies in the Rule 5 draft back in December.

Krasovic talked to Padres GM Kevin Towers, who "said he probably will look outside of the organization for a shortstop."  The current starter for San Diego is Luis Rodriguez

So who's available?  Reader Chris F. suggested Oakland's Bobby Crosby.  I imagine that would require the A's eating most of his $5.25MM salary.  I'd expect something lower profile, like Angel Berroa or Luis Rivas.
