Kyle Blanks could rejoin San Diego Padres Sunday
San Diego has been without Blanks since July 12 while he suffered from tendinitis in both of his achilles' tendons. Blanks has been on a minor league rehab the past week, playing in four games for Triple-A Tucson. He picked up one hit and one walk over 11 at-bats.
Blanks, 26, had been starting consistently for the Padres before going down with his injury. He has filled in where needed in both corner outfield spots and first base this year. With Yonder Alonso at first base and Carlos Quentin and Cameron Maybin out, Blanks will likely see most of his opportunities in the outfield moving forward.
