The San Diego Padres will be without Fernando Tatis Jr. for a little while as he recovers from wrist surgery following a motorcycle accident.
Don’t expect the San Diego Padres to have Fernando Tatis Jr. healthy and available to play for a little while. The Padres star is currently recovering from wrist surgery, which was needed because of a motorcycle crash.
Apparently Tatis tried to show up to San Diego’s spring training and prepare for the upcoming season with his wrist still injured (as it had been for much of the offseason), but that didn’t seem to work well for him.
So he got surgery to try and put everything in his wrist back together.
And now he’s going to be out for a little while. It looks like Tatis could be sidelined for about three months as he recovers from the surgery.
That’s pretty far from an ideal situation for the Padres, but it’s probably the best they can get right now. This will allow for Tatis to fully recover and return closer to 100 percent than he would be had he not had the surgery.
Fernando Tatis Jr. injury update: San Diego Padres star undergoes wrist surgery
On the bright side, apparently Tatis won’t be riding any motorcycles any time soon. That’s an activity he should be avoiding if at all possible.
But, well, maybe the Padres should also address this and get the guys to tone it down a little.
The last thing San Diego needs is anyone else getting injured.
Tatis was an All-Star in 2021 and finished last season with a remarkable 42 home runs to go along with a .282 batting average. He’s got an absurdly high ceiling and can be a great start for San Diego. The Padres just need him to stay healthy.
