SAN DIEGO - The San Diego Padres have called up Dorchester, Ont., native Chris Robinson from their triple-A affiliate in Tucson, Ariz.

Drafted by the Detroit Tigers in the third round of the 2005 amateur draft, Robinson bounced from the Tigers' organization to the minor league affiliates of the Chicago Cubs and Baltimore Orioles before being traded to the Padres in June.

Robinson played 29 games with the Tucson Padres, hitting .298 with a .330 on-base percentage. He will be making his first trip to the majors.

The 29-year-old is a veteran of Canada's national team program. He was named Canada's starting catcher at the 2013 World Baseball Classic when Russell Martin backed out of the tournament.

Robinson won gold with Canada at the 2011 Pan American Games along with North Battleford, Sask., native Andrew Albers, who made his MLB debut with the Minnesota Twins last week.

The Padres also placed catcher Nick Hundley on paternity leave.
