Padres recalled OF Blake Tekotte from Triple-A Tucson.

A third-round pick in 2008, Tekotte made only three plate appearances in his 10-day stay with the Friars earlier this year. The 24-year-old takes Mark Kotsay's spot on the roster and is probably an upgrade from a baseball perspective. That being said, Tekotte will likely have another short stint in San Diego with Kotsay due back later this month. For now, he'll serve as San Diego's fourth outfielder.
