Padres Designate Mark Hamburger For Assignment

The Padres have designated right-hander Mark Hamburger for assignment, according to a team press release.  In a corresponding move, Jeremy Hermida was activated from the 60-day DL and sent to Triple-A Tucson. 

Hamburger was picked up off waivers last month after being DFA'ed by the Rangers and had a 7.50 ERA in 12 innings for Triple-A Tucson.  The righty has a career 3.99 ERA and 8.1 K/9 rate in 198 minor league games, and had a five-game cup of coffee with the Rangers last season.
