Tatis (hamstring) has ramped up his rehab and could return from the 10-day injured list Friday against the Rockies, Kevin Acee of The San Diego Union-Tribune reports.
Tatis progressed from jogging to sprinting Tuesday and participated in on-field batting practice for the first time since straining his hamstring on April 28. All of this bodes well for the status of the 20-year-old shortstop, who is on track to return as soon as he's eligible against the Rockies on Friday.
Tatis (hamstring) was spotted playing catch and taking swings on Saturday, AJ Cassavell of MLB.com reports.
The 20-year-old shortstop has resumed baseball activities after suffering a strained hamstring last Sunday, and although there's still no timetable for his return, this is at least an encouraging sign he's taking steps in the right direction. Tatis was slashing .300/.360/.550 over 100 at-bats before the injury.
Tatis was placed on the 10-day injured list with a left hamstring strain Tuesday.
Tatis suffered the injury while making a defensive play at second base Sunday. He'll be eligible to return May 10 in Colorado. The Padres haven't announced a specific recovery timeline, but previous reports suggested that Tatis expected to be able to play by the end of the weak, so it may be the case that San Diego is simply being cautious. Reliever Phil Maton was recalled from Triple-A El Paso in a corresponding move, leaving the Padres with the choice of starting Greg Garcia at shortstop or sliding Manny Machado over and starting Ty France at third base.
Tatis (hamstring) is expected to head to the injured list Tuesday, AJ Cassavell of MLB.com reports.
Previous reports suggested that Tatis would be able to play by the end of the week after injuring his hamstring while accidentally doing the splits to make a defensive play Sunday. The latest reports suggest that the Padres have changed their plans. It doesn't appear that there's been any setback, but the team would prefer to be cautious with its budding young star. Luis Urias has been dominating Triple-A pitching and would likely fill in at shortstop if Tatis does indeed head to the injured list.
The expectation is that Tatis (hamstring) will be able to play by week's end, Kevin Acee of The San Diego Union-Tribune reports.
Tatis injured his hamstring during a freak play in the 10th inning Sunday when he inadvertently did the splits while trying to make a catch. Manager Andy Green said before Monday's game that Tatis will undergo an MRI to confirm that he did not tear the hamstring. For now, the Padres don't seem pressed to make a roster move; Manny Machado gives them another option at short if something were to happen to Greg Garcia, who took over for Tatis both at shortstop and atop the order Monday.
