The San Diego Padres reinstated right-handed pitcher Ian Kennedy from paternity leave and optioned right-hander Leonel Campos to Triple-A El Paso on Tuesday.
Kennedy (6-9, 4.44 ERA) starts his 20th game of the season Wednesday night in the third of four games against the Milwaukee Brewers.
Campos (0-0, 9.00) heads to El Paso after appearing in one game for the Padres, allowing a run on one hit in an inning of work.
Kennedy and his wife, Allison, celebrated the birth of their fourth daughter on Friday.
Queens prosecutors say authorities have arrested eight gang members on charges they sold guns and drugs to undercover investigators over two years.
Officials say Tuesday seven of the defendants belong to the Trinitarios street gang and another is a member of the MS-13 crew.
District Attorney Richard Brown says the charges include weapons possession as well as criminal sale of firearms and controlled substances.
He says the defendants sold 14 weapons to undercover operatives, such as a defaced, cut-down rifle; a defaced .357 magnum revolver; and a semi-automatic pistol.
Six scientists have been selected to spend an entire year isolated in a solar-powered dome habitat on Hawaii's Big Island to simulate a trip to Mars.
It's the fourth, and so far the longest, mission in the Hawaii Space Exploration Analog and Simulation project -- a NASA-funded simulation of long-duration space exploration.
An area in the Gulf of Mexico with too little oxygen to keep sea creatures alive is the 11th largest measured and nearly 18 percent bigger than predicted earlier this year.
It has gotten so big because heavy June rains throughout the Mississippi River watershed carried nutrient-rich runoff from farms and other human activities into the gulf, federal and state scientists said Tuesday.
Those nutrients, mainly nitrogen and phosphorus, feed algae and other one-celled plants that die and fall to the bottom, where their decomposition uses up oxygen.
New York Jets defensive end Muhammad Wilkerson is day to day with a tweaked hamstring that kept him out of practice Tuesday.

The team was off from practice Monday.
