I'm also a bit surprised, but he was slumping pretty badly. All things considered. Nady will be back... :-)

Well, I'm not werveres and I'm definately not a Padres guru, but I might be able to help you anyway! :-)

Jason Bay (wrist) is scheduled to begin a rehab assignment with Triple-A Portland on Sunday, according to the San Diego Union-Tribune.

Jason Bay, one of the Padres' top prospects, is creating excitement within the organization by hitting home runs to all fields, off a variety of pitchers, playing well in the outfield and stealing bases.

In his latest feat, Bay proved rust-proof. The Canadian outfielder, undeterred by a fractured wrist that cut short his time with the Padres, came back from a 41-game hiatus to hit four home runs in seven games with Class AAA Portland.

"This guy didn't skip a beat, and that's hard to find," said Tye Waller, the Padres' director of player development. "That shows me something about his mental toughness. He's showing, 'Hey, I'm going to get back to the big leagues.' "

In spring training, manager Bruce Bochy said Bay, 24, could become a regular, not just a nice extra.

Bay responded with 14 home runs and a .302 batting average in his first 179 at-bats with Portland. He impressed the Padres over three games in late May, going 2-for-8 with a home run (off Arizona closer Matt Mantei) before Elmer Dessens' fastball fractured a wrist.

General manager Kevin Towers likens Bay to Kevin McReynolds, one of the best outfielders in Padres history. Last August, Towers obtained Bay from the Mets for reliever Steve Reed.

"Bay has power to all fields," Waller said. "I don't know what he did this winter as far as his strength, as far as allowing him to drive ball out to all fields, but his confidence is at an all-time high. He's so quiet at the plate and under control. It's like he's aged three years in the wintertime."

There, hope that's enough info! For further Padres info wrveres is your man! ;-D

I think there are two reason's for Nady's demotion. One was to clear room for Nevin's return to the OF. And two is that it could have something to do with all of the talk of Brian Giles going to the Padres.

Just my thoughts.

Yeah, but to get Giles they would have to send Rondell White. They don't have the payroll to keep both of them. I think they just wanna get Nady some intensive practice in the minors and get him hitting again.

Nady will benefit himself and the team by playing back in the minors while Nevin anchors right field. He also needs some fielding work and shorten his swing.
