Player Notes
Melvin Upton (foot) went 2-for-5 with an RBI, a stolen base, and a run scored Monday in his first minor league rehab game with Triple-A El Paso.

Advice: Upton has been sidelined since early on in spring training due to sesamoiditis in his left foot, so the Padres want him to get 40-50 at-bats during his minor league rehab assignment. The 30-year-old figures to serve as a backup outfielder once he's ready to join the big club.

Melvin Upton (foot) will begin a rehab assignment with Triple-A El Paso on Monday.

Advice: He was supposed to begin his rehab this weekend but it got pushed back to Monday. Upton was acquired from Atlanta in early April. When Upton finally returns, he'll provide outfield depth behind starters Wil Myers, Matt Kemp and his younger brother Justin.

Melvin Upton (foot) is scheduled to begin a minor league rehab assignment with Triple-A El Paso this weekend.

Advice: Upton has been sidelined since late February due to sesamoiditis in his left foot, but is finally progressing toward a return to game action. The biggest hurdle to his fantasy value though, is that there doesn't appear to be a clear path to regular at-bats for him in the Padres outfield.
