Padres manager Jayce Tingler said that Snell (groin) was feeling a little more sore and tender than expected Monday, one day after the lefty exited his start against the Dodgers with left adductor tightness, Annie Heilbrunn of The San Diego Union-Tribune reports.

While he said he's hopeful Snell will still be ready to make his next turn through the rotation this weekend in St. Louis, Tingler acknowledged the possibility of the team having to turn to another pitcher to make a spot start. The San Diego rotation has been ravaged by injuries throughout the second half, and Snell's bout with adductor tightness comes at particularly tough time after Chris Paddack (elbow) landed on the injured list Monday.
