NL West News: Padres Lose Star Fernando Tatis to Ugly Looking Shoulder Injury

If you’re a baseball fan, this is one of the last things you want to see. Padres shortstop Fernando Tatis, one of the best young superstars in the game, left Monday night’s game in San Francisco after injuring himself on the follow-through of a swing.

Here’s the full look, courtesy of NBC. Warning, while not gruesome, the reaction is absolutely unsettling. 

Tatis inked a monster contract extension with the Padres in the offseason despite less than 150 career MLB games under his belt. 

Continuing on with the injury, it was later revealed that he suffered a left shoulder subluxation –dislocated shoulder — on the swing.

Padres manager Jayce Tinger provided an update after the game.

The 22-year-old anchors a powerful San Diego offense, so, unfortunately, this could be a huge blow for the Friars this season.

The Dodgers are scheduled to play the Padres 7 times in April, first in San Diego April 16-18. San Diego would then head to Los Angeles the next weekend, April 22-25.
