  • Padres' Fernando Tatis: Could play outfield upon return

    The Padres are considering having Tatis (wrist) play the outfield when he's able to return to action, AJ Cassavell of MLB.com reports.

    Tatis is making progress in his return from left wrist surgery and could resume swinging a bat within the next few weeks. He's still not close to making his season debut, but San Diego has nonetheless discussed having the superstar shortstop shift to the outfield when he does return, per Cassavell. Tatis is no stranger to the outfield -- he spent time in both center and right field last season -- though he's been doing most of his defensive work at shortstop while rehabbing. It's important to note that there's no definitive plan in place for Tatis yet, and priorities could change depending on what happens with the roster between now and his return. "I really don't know yet," Padres manager Bob Melvin said. "It depends on once he gets here where our need is. This guy can play any position on the field. I don't think we're saying: This is the particular position for him. It's just as much about conditioning and getting his arm in shape being in the outfield."

  • Padres' Fernando Tatis: Returning to full swings

    Tatis (wrist) "came out happy" from Tuesday's doctor appointment and is expected to be swinging a bat at full speed within the next two weeks, Kevin Acee of The San Diego Union-Tribune reports.

    The 23-year-old was limited to swinging at about 40 percent intensity as of last week, but he apparently checked out well Tuesday and has received clearance to progress to full swings. Once he's swinging 100 percent off a tee, Tatis will advance to hitting off a pitching machine for 10 days before starting a rehab assignment. Given that basic timeline he won't be ready to return from the injured list coming out of the All-Star break July 22, but he could be back by the end of July or early August.

  • Padres' Fernando Tatis: Not swinging at full strength

    Tatis (wrist) relayed Wednesday that he's been swinging a bat at about 40 percent intensity in recent days, Dennis Lin of The Athletic reports. "We're just trying to take stock of where he's at. We're not pushing anything," manager Bob Melvin said, regarding Tatis' recovery from left wrist surgery. "But we're in a period here where something could change from day-to-day or week-to-week."

    According to AJ Cassavell of MLB.com, Tatis has been swinging a bat at varying intensities for about a month or two, but the Padres have yet to clear him to swing fully. Tatis noted that while he's feeling better with each passing day, he remains without a precise timeline to swing fully, much less head out on a minor-league rehab assignment. The 23-year-old will need to show significant progress within the next week to have a realistic shot at making it back from the 60-day injured list before the All-Star break.

  • Padres' Fernando Tatis: Timeline pushed back

    Tatis' CT scan on his wrist Monday didn't reveal the desired level of healing, so his expected return date has been pushed back, Kevin Acee of The San Diego Union-Tribune reports.

    Tatis has been limited to running and fielding grounders as he makes his way back from an offseason wrist fracture. He was hoping to be cleared to swing following Monday's test, but that won't be happening just yet. Per Dennis Lin of The Athletic, general manager A.J. Preller nonetheless called the exam positive overall, though it's unclear exactly how that could be the case when the results were the opposite of what the team hoped for. The Padres have yet to decide when Tatis' next scan will be, so he remains without a clear timetable for now.

  • Padres' Fernando Tatis: Awaiting test results

    Tatis underwent a CT scan on his wrist Monday and is awaiting the results, Charlie Goldsmith of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports.

    Tatis has been out all year after undergoing surgery on his fractured left wrist. He's hoping the scan will clear him to start swinging. Even if it does, he'll still have a lengthy buildup process to go through before he returns to the active roster.

  • Padres' Fernando Tatis: Scan pushed to next week

    Tatis (wrist) is expected to undergo a CT scan on his wrist next week rather than this week as previously reported, Kevin Acee of The San Diego Union-Tribune reports.

    The 23-year-old didn't suffer any kind of setback, but the Padres just want to provide some additional time for him to heal before sending him for the imaging. If the CT scan produces encouraging results, Tatis could then be cleared to resume swinging a bat. To this point the shortstop has been limited to running and fielding grounders.

  • Padres' Fernando Tatis: Scan coming later this week

    Tatis will undergo a CT scan on his left wrist later this week in hopes of getting cleared to hit, Kevin Acee of The San Diego Union-Tribune reports.

    Reports from last week indicated Tatis would receive a scan when the Padres returned home Monday, but the scan evidently isn't scheduled to happen right away. He's been able to field grounders and work on his defense, but he'll presumably need awhile to get his timing back at the plate before he's ready to return to game action.

  • Padres' Fernando Tatis: Could hit next week

    Tatis' wrist will be scanned again when the Padres return home next Monday, at which point he could be cleared to hit, Kevin Acee of The San Diego Union-Tribune reports.

    Tatis hasn't made particularly quick progress in his return from a fractured wrist, though he's at least been able to run and field grounders. His previous scan last Tuesday indicated that he needed more healing before being cleared to swing, but the Padres are optimistic that two extra weeks will be enough time for that to happen.

  • Padres' Fernando Tatis: More healing needed before swinging

    Tatis (wrist) underwent a bone scan Tuesday which revealed more healing is required before he's cleared to swing a bat, Annie Heilbrunn of Bally Sports San Diego reports.

    Tatis has been taking part in light field work, but he's not yet able to play catch or swing a bat. The 23-year-old is expected to receive another bone scan "sooner rather than later," but it's clear his return to full baseball activities won't happen in the immediate future.

  • Padres' Fernando Tatis: Making slow progress

    Tatis (wrist) has begun fieldng slowly rolled grounders, but he has yet to resume swinging a bat, AJ Cassavell of MLB.com reports.

    Tatis has been working out at the Padres' complex in Arizona while the team is on the road, and he recently began fielding light grounders that are rolled to him. However, he still has not been cleared to catch a ball from any distance with his glove hand, and it remains unclear when he'll be able to start swinging a bat. The latter is of particular importance, as San Diego has acknowledged that a timetable for Tatis to return won't be available until he clears that hurdle.

  • Padres' Fernando Tatis: Not yet taking swings

    Tatis (wrist) has been running and taking grounders, but he has yet to swing a bat or play catch, Kevin Acee of The San Diego Union-Tribune reports.

    Tatis' wrist hasn't yet recovered to the point that he's able to play catch, and he recently indicated he's not sure when he'll be able to swing a bat. The star shortstop is over seven weeks removed from left wrist surgery and is eligible to return in early June, but per Acee, the expectation is that he won't be back until the middle or end of that month. Tatis could make an immediate impact when he does return to action, based on his amazing skill set.
