Padres | Kyle Blanks not close to returning

San Diego Padres OF Kyle Blanks (Achilles') has been sidelined by a sore Achilles' tendon since July 12, and he is not close to returning. "It's bothersome, sore," manager Bud Black said Monday, July 29. "The doctors looked at him today and said it would be a couple of weeks. I'm not sure if that means he'll play in a big-league game in two weeks or if it means he can put on his spikes. Honestly, I don't think he'll be in the lineup in two weeks."
