DENVER -- Chris Nelson was released from Sky Ridge Hospital Tuesday night and is resting comfortably at home.

Nelson, hospitalized Monday with an irregular heartbeat, underwent a successful shock treatment Tuesday to help his heart return to a regular rhythm. Manager Jim Tracy said Nelson was in the clubhouse during Tuesday's game against the Pirates, though he did not get a chance to speak to him.

"My understanding is he'll stay at home for a couple of days," Tracy said.

Nelson, 26, was put on the 15-day disabled list on Monday.
