Padres recall Jesse Hahn, Chris Nelson goes on paternity leave

The Padres announced that Chris Nelson is going on paternity leave, and Jesse Hahn has been called back up to take his roster spot. Hahn had been optioned down two weeks ago not due to poor performance, but to rest his arm which has thrown an unprecedented number of innings this season. This is Nelson and his wife's first child, a fact that it took minimal Googling to learn. According to this (Louisville, KY) Courier-Journal article from May, the baby was expected in October. I hope that was a typo or misunderstanding, because this is still August. Keep your fingers crossed, or do whatever...
