Fernando Tatis Jr. took part in his third session of live batting practice from Dodger Stadium early Friday afternoon and was scheduled to fly to San Antonio to join the San Diego Padres' Double-A affiliate later that night, beginning a rehab assignment this weekend.

Tatis, 23, has spent all season rehabbing from surgery to his left wrist but has basically reached the end of his recovery and is now focused on getting his timing back and his legs underneath him. Tatis underwent what was expected to be a final scan of the scaphoid bone that sustained a fracture early in the offseason, and Padres manager Bob Melvin said "everything looks good."
