Fernando Tatis Jr. suffers partially dislocated shoulder on swing

Fernando Tatis Jr shoulder

Fernando Tatis Jr. exited Monday’s San Diego Padres-San Francisco Giants game after injuring his shoulder on a swing.

Tatis was batting in the bottom of the third inning and took a huge hack on a 2-2 pitch and whiffed for the strikeout. He went down to the ground in pain because he had hurt his shoulder on the swing.

The shoulder injury is nothing new; Tatis has been dealing with a left shoulder injury since his time in the minors and missed periods in spring training because of it.

In this case, Tatis Jr. suffered a left shoulder subluxation, which is a partial dislocation.

It’s unclear how much time Tatis might miss, but no matter how you look at things, this is bad for the Padres.

The 22-year-old shortstop has been awesome in his first two seasons in MLB and signed a $340 million contract before the season. He was expected to be a possible MVP candidate and big driver in the Padres’ success. They can only hope the injury doesn’t cost the shortstop much time nor linger.
