Brad Boxberger's parents were supposed to meet him in Las Vegas for the Tucson Padres next road series, beginning Monday.

Boxberger called his folks after Friday night's 4-0 loss to Reno to let them know there's been a change of plans. Boxberger was told after the game that he's being promoted to San Diego.

It will be his first appearance in the major leagues.

"I called my parents and let them know I'm not going to be able to meet them in Vegas after all," Boxberger said. "I think they're happy to adjust."

Boxberger is 1-2 with a 4.70 ERA in 23 innings for Tucson so far this season. He has five saves on the season and three in his last 10 appearances.

He was acquired by San Diego in the offseason from Cincinnati in the deal that sent Mat Latos to the Reds. With Boxberger going up, all four players the Padres got for Latos--Yonder Alonso, Edinson Volquez, Yasmani Grandal and Boxberger--will have suited up for the big league club at one point or another this season.

Grandal went up for a couple of days before returning to Tucson. Volquez and Alonso have been up all season.
