Eric Hosmer broke his left index finger while attempting to bunt in the first inning against the Colorado Rockies on Monday.
The San Diego Padres are expected to be without Hosmer for two to six weeks.
"Knowing Hos, he's a tough guy, and knowing his pain tolerance ... with some good luck and some good fortune, it heals up, and at that point, it'll be up to pain tolerance," Jayce Tingler said. "If we can get it to that point, I feel very confident betting on the man."
San Diego will likely look to rookie Jake Cronenworth at first base. They also acquired Mitch Moreland before last week's trade deadline.
