The Padres have placed the shortstop Fernando Tatis Jr. and right handed Chris Paddack on the 10-day casualty list. Tatis is under IL with inflammation of the left shoulder, after leave the Friday night game with a shoulder problem following a slip into third base. Paddack was sidelined with a left oblique stump, and his placement is retroactive to July 28.

In the corresponding movements, the Padres also chose the right-handed Nabil Crismatt to Triple-A when calling right-handed people Miguel diaz and Reiss Knehr, and newly acquired outfielder Jake Marisnick has been added to the active list.

This is the second time Tatis’s troublesome left shoulder has sent him to the injured list this season as he suffered a slight tear in the labrum. At the beginning of April but ended up missing only a minimum of time. Tatis has since missed a few games with mild shoulder pain, but the Padres manager Jayce tingler Recount Kevin acee from the San Diego Union-Tribune and other reporters that Tatis’ shoulder was “more painful” as a result of this injury than in his past aggravations of the shoulder.

According to Acee, there is no indication yet that the Padres are considering shutting down Tatis following these recurring injuries. If surgery is the only way to completely correct the problem, that would obviously put Tatis on the sidelines for the remainder of this season and potentially until 2022, depending on the extent of the procedure and the severity of the shoulder damage. The fact that Tatis has been able to bounce back several times this year and still produce at a superstar level gives hope that he can recover from this latest setback as well, but it looks like Tatis will need more than just the 10-day minimum. recovery time.

There’s no way to replace Tatis, of course, but San Diego’s acquisition of Adam frazier last week now seems all the more important. Jake cronenworth can slide to a shortstop while Frazier takes over as planned at second base, but this scenario also interrupts the Padres’ initial plan – using Cronenworth at first base and Frazier as a super utility around the diamond, providing coverage and depth behind Eric Hosmer and Wil myers. Ha Seong Kim and Jurickson Profar are also available as utility options.

Losing Paddack is no small feat for the Padres either, who have been constantly hampered by rotational injuries all season. The brothers were rumored to be considering several starters before the trade deadline, but the reliever Daniel hudson ended up being their only new arm. Paddack was due to start on Sunday, but the Padres could now look to Knehr or another option for the game.

Paddack threw better (3.92 SIERA) than his 5.13 ERA would suggest, but he allowed a lot of hard contact. Perhaps the key stat is 93 innings pitched, as Paddack has been a reliable and enduring member of the starting staff outside of a 10-day COVID absence at the start of the season. The right-hander has a below-average strikeout rate, but he’s been one of the best at limiting free passes; Paddack’s walk rate is only 5 percent.
