Tatis (shoulder) is expected to return to the lineup Monday against the Dodgers, AJ Cassavell of MLB.com reports. Tatis sat out Sunday's game against Cincinnati after he left Saturday's contest with a left shoulder issue, but manager Jayce Tingler said that the shortstop will be back in the lineup Monday "unless things drastically change." Across his last five games, the 22-year-old has gone 7-for-17 with three home runs, two doubles, eight runs, six RBI and four walks.
Tatis (shoulder) is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Reds. The Padres don't appear to be viewing Tatis' left shoulder injury as a major concern, but the shortstop will need at least one day off to aid his recovery. Ha-Seong Kim will enter the starting nine in place of Tatis, whose next chance to rejoin the lineup comes Monday versus the Dodgers.
Manager Jayce Tingler said that Tatis is day-to-day after exiting Saturday's game with a left shoulder issue, Jeff Sanders of The San Diego Union-Tribune reports. Tingler said that the shortstop's strength and range of motion are both fine and that the superstar wanted to stay in the game. The injury isn't thought to be as serious as when Tatis dislocated his left shoulder and went to the injured list in April, though it seems likely to be related to the previous issue. Tatis can be considered questionable for Sunday's series finale, though Tingler could opt to give him a day off even if he progresses substantially overnight.
Tatis exited Saturday's game against the Reds in the fifth inning after appearing to injure his left shoulder while diving for a ball, Kevin Acee of The San Diego Union-Tribune reports. He went 1-for-2 with a walk and two runs scored before being replaced by Ha-Seong Kim. Tatis spent 11 days on the injured list in April due to a partially dislocated left shoulder, and per Bill Shaikin of the Los Angeles Times, he's played with a partially torn labrum since. It's not entirely clear if Saturday's injury is related to the previous issue, but that figures to be a strong possibility. The Padres will likely provide an update on the star shortstop later Saturday or early Sunday.
Tatis went 1-for-3 with a solo home run and a walk in Thursday's 6-4 win over Cincinnati. For the fifth time in six games, the superstar shortstop knocked a ball out of the yard. Tatis' homer Thursday opened the scoring in the sixth inning, spoiling Wade Miley's shutout bid. The 22-year-old matched his career high in home runs at 22, a mark he set in 84 games as a rookie in 2019. He's added 49 RBI, 48 runs scored, 13 stolen bases and a .278/.354/.675 slash line across 223 plate appearances.
