Eric Young returns to Rockies
Young was placed on the bereavement list May 5 and then moved to the restricted list a week later. Following the death of his grandfather, Young played a couple of games at extended spring training in Scottsdale, Ariz.
Young was hitting .296 when he went on leave.
Nelson, who is hitting .219, has been bothered by a sore and swollen left wrist for a while and manager Jim Tracy said shutting him down was the best way to get him healthy. The move was retroactive to Tuesday.
