San Diego Padres shortstop Fernando Tatis Jr. exited Saturday's game against the Cincinnati Reds alongside a trainer after appearing to suffer a shoulder injury in the fifth inning. After the game, manager Jayce Tingler told reporters (including Jeff Sanders of the San Diego Union-Tribune) Tatis petitioned to stay in the game, and that his range of the motion is good. The Padres consider him to be day to day.
Tatis departed after a diving-stop attempt on a Tyler Naquingrounder through the hole during the top of the fifth. He was in apparent discomfort after the attempt, slowly getting to his feet after possibly injuring his left shoulder. The Padres inserted rookie Ha-Seong Kim in Tatis' place.
Earlier this season, Tatis missed nine games after suffering a "slight" labrum tear in the same shoulder on a swing.
