Hedges went 1-for-3 with a walk and a two-run home run in Wednesday's 3-2 win over the Marlins.
His fourth-inning shot -- the catcher's first long ball in nearly two months -- gave the Padres a 3-0 lead, and Chris Paddack and the bullpen took it from there. Hedges is slashing only .187/.250/.325 through 62 games with seven homers and 25 RBI, and he'll continue losing playing time to Francisco Mejia if he can't supply more consistent offense.
Hedges (personal) was reinstated from the bereavement list Tuesday, Bill Center of MLB.com reports.
Hedges missed three games after going on the bereavement list Friday. Austin Allen was sent back to Triple-A El Paso in a corresponding move.
Hedges was placed on the bereavement list prior to Friday's game against the Braves, Kevin Acee of The San Diego Union-Tribune reports.
He must miss a minimum of three games and a maximum of seven games. Austin Allen was recalled from Triple-A to assume the backup catcher duties in the short term. Francisco Mejia will start at catcher and hit sixth Friday.
