Fernando Tatis, Jr. has been placed on the 10-day injured list but will not need surgery after the latest injury to his troublesome left shoulder, according to the San Diego Padres.
Tatis suffered the injury on a hard swing Monday and left San Diego's 3-2 loss to the San Francisco Giants. He suffered a shoulder subluxation, which is a partial dislocation of the joint.
The Padres hope Tatis can return as quickly as 10 days. A.J. Preller said the shortstop has full range of motion and that he wanted to be in the lineup Tuesday.
"In general for us, I think it's just being safe, giving the left shoulder inflammation and some of the instability [a] chance to calm down," Preller said.
