Neshek was placed on the paternity list Wednesday, Matt Gelb of the Philadelphia Inquirer reports.

Neshek will miss three games at the most, putting him in line to return for this weekend's series against the Braves. The veteran right-hander has been terrific for the Phillies out of the bullpen this season, throwing 5.2 innings of shutout ball over six games. Ben Lively will take his spot in the bullpen temporarily.
