Padres Star Tatis Has Broken Wrist, Could Be Out Three Months
PEORIA, Ariz. (AP) — The San Diego Padres say All-Star shortstop Fernando Tatis Jr. likely will need surgery for a broken left wrist and could miss up to three months.
General manager A.J. Preller says Tatis suffered the injury in the offseason.
The injury is a blow to a team that was looking for a fresh start following a brutal late-season collapse that left them with yet another losing record.
The 23-year-old Tatis had a series of injuries to his left shoulder last year, when he still led the NL with 42 home runs and finished third in balloting for the NL MVP.
