Padres News: Melvin Upton To Join Padres On Monday


According to Corey Brock of, Melvin Upton Jr. is set to be activated from the DL on Monday and join the San Diego Padres in Atlanta.

With Melvin’s activation I have to assume it’ll be Abraham Almonte that will be sent back down to Triple-A. Melvin hit .280 in his 13 games with El Paso.

If Melvin preforms well it’ll make things even more difficult for Buddy when Wil Myers is done with his rehab assignment as well.
