San Diego Padres get silver lining in Fernando Tatis Jr. suspension

As much as Fernando Tatis Jr.’s suspension for a failed PED test may hurt the San Diego Padres this season, it could be beneficial going forward. Tatis has been hindered by a troublesome shoulder that has caused him to miss time over the years. However, he has rejected the idea of having surgery to repair the labrum as he did not want to have an extended period on the Injured List. It makes sense that he wanted to be on the diamond – his dynamic all around game can make a major impact on the Padres’ hopes.

Padres star Fernando Tatis Jr. to begin rehab assignment

LOS ANGELES (AP) — Star shortstop Fernando Tatis Jr. will begin a rehab assignment with Double-A San Antonio either Saturday or Sunday, San Diego Padres manager Bob Melvin said. Tatis took batting practice with the Padres at Dodger Stadium on Friday afternoon and then left for Texas. Tatis has been sidelined since having surgery in mid-March on his fractured left wrist, reportedly suffered in an offseason motorcycle accident in his native Dominican Republic. Although there’s no timetable for his return, starting the rehab assignment is a big step for Tatis and the Padres. “He didn’t have a spring and hasn’t played in the field yet, so we’ll monitor as we go along,” Melvin said.
