Injury Scout - Jeff Nelson Exits in San Diego

HP Umpire Jeff Nelson left Friday's #Pirates-#Padres game in San Diego due to a back injury.

In the top of the 7th inning, following the first out, Nelson and crew convened, with 2B Umpire CB Bucknor leaving the field for the umpires' room while Nelson, 1B Umpire Manny Gonzalez, and 3B Umpire Charlie Ramos remained on the field to officiate in a three-umpire mechanics alignment.

Following the half inning's third out, the three on-field umpires met and Nelson waited for Bucknor to return in full plate gear before leaving, the game resuming with three umpires as 2B Umpire Bucknor took over behind home plate and assumed acting crew chief duties while 1B Umpire Gonzalez and 3B Umpire Ramos remained on the foul lines.

Relevant Injury History: There is no prior recorded game-ending back injury.
