Jenkins was outrighted to Triple-A El Paso on Saturday, Dennis Lin of The San Diego Union-Tribune reports.

With Carter Capps (elbow) reaching the end of his rehab window, the Padres cleared room to activate the reliever from the 60-day disabled list by dropping Jenkins from their 40-man roster. The 24-year-old Jenkins once held some promise while he was coming up in the Cardinals organization, but walks have been a major issue for him in the upper minors and during his eight-start run with the Braves in 2016. He's delivered a 6.71 ERA and 44:41 K:BB over 61.2 innings at Triple-A El Paso this season.
