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, )

News: Nelson was placed on the paternity list Saturday. Impact: The timing is pretty convenient for the Padres, as they won't need to make a corresponding move to activate Nelson, assuming he remains away through the weekend. He's batting just .205/.295/.231 this month and will likely continue seeing only occasional starts around the infield in September.(RotoWire, )
