News: Nelson cleared waivers and was outrighted to Triple-A El Paso on Thursday, Jeff Sanders of the San Diego Union-Tribune reports. Impact: Unsurprisingly, there were few teams interesting in adding the journeyman infielder to their 40-man roster during the stretch run. Nelson will likely pack it for the season and look to land a minor-league contract with an organization over the winter.(RotoWire, )

News: Nelson was designated for assignment Tuesday. Impact: The Padres welcomed Nelson back from paternity leave by dropping him from their 40-man roster, giving him a head start on looking for employment this offseason. Nelson will likely have to settle for a minor-league contract after slashing a pitiful .233/.296/.274 over his 81 plate appearances with the Padres.(RotoWire, )

News: Nelson (personal) will return from paternity leave Tuesday, Dennis Lin of the San Diego Union-Tribune reports. Impact: Nelson was away from the team for three games following the birth of his child. Prior to going on leave, Nelson had seen semi-regular work at third base, but with Jedd Gyorko back healthy from a hamstring injury and bumping Yangervis Solarte over to third, expect Nelson's at-bats to dry up in September.(RotoWire, )
