DENVER (AP) — The San Diego Padres have placed outfielder Manuel Margot on the 10-day disabled list with bruised ribs.

Margot left in the ninth inning on Tuesday after getting hit by a fastball from Colorado reliever Scott Oberg. Manager Andy Green said Wednesday before the game that he’s hoping Margot feels better in four or five days and can resume taking some swings.
