How is Nevin expected to do once he returns?

Lets say he returns August 10th or so, will his production from that point on be around, maybe, batista's or will it be significantly lower?

If San Diego even lets him bat this year, someone should get fired. Maybe in September, maybe .. but why risk it .. let the shoulder heal for next season ..

I would think he will struggle for at least the first few weeks. He hasn't seen major league pitching since last year. I wouldn't expect too much out of him early on.

Last year when he got back from his injury, he played pretty poorly after he returned (if i remember correctly). I wouldnt expect too much...he'll probably play like 3 games a week, to get his timing down and gradually ease back into the swing of things.

He won't be back this year. It would make absolutely no sense to bring him back and risk ending his career.

He might play a few games at the end of the season just to say that he did and to prove to himself that the hard work paid off but I wouldn't expect anything huge or signifcant from him.

I doubt it. Maybe if we had a shot at a .500 season. But that is obviously not going to happen, so no point in risking it this season. Same goes for Hoffman. No point in turning them into the next Griffey.

Well, in this week Sports Illustrated, it said he will be back in August.

rotoworld also has him slated as an august return.

Padres manager Bruce Bochy said the club hasn't decided what position Phil Nevin will play when he returns in August. Unless Sean Burroughs stops hitting, it's safe to assume that Nevin won't come back as a third baseman. Left field is probably the best bet, which is bad news for Rondell White.

it seems pretty definite he will back. they probably wont push him too hard, just a few games a week. i dont think he will due all that great but you can never tell.
