Patino (finger) was placed on the 7-day injured list at Double-A Amarillo on Tuesday.

The move is retroactive to Aug. 25. Patino exited following the third inning in his last start after developing a blister on his right finger. Though an update on his condition has not been made available, the Padres are taking no chances with their prized pitching prospect, and there's a chance he doesn't pitch again this season. The 19-year-old has compiled a 6-8 record along with a 2.57 ERA, 1.13 WHIP and 123:38 K:BB in 94.2 innings across two minor-league levels.
