San Diego Padres star infielder Fernando Tatis Jr. will miss at least a few months, up to three, with a broken left wrist he suffered in the offseason.

The circumstances under which he suffered the injury are still unclear, but he says it started to flare up about a month ago, when he was unable to speak to his team doctors due to the lockout. out.

Now he’s still deciding whether or not to have surgery, though the timeline of his return isn’t changed too much if he jumps under the knife.

It’s a disappointment for Tatis and the Padres.

Injuries, unfortunately, have been part of Tatis’ career so far.

Injuries have plagued Tatis so far in his career

The 23-year-old MVP contender has a considerable track record when it comes to time on the shelf.

“Fernando Tatis Jr. July 2018: end of season operation (thumb). August 2019: Season-ending back injury. April 2021: left shoulder subluxation. July 2021: 2nd left shoulder subluxation (missing 32 games that season). March 2022: fractured wrist (expected to miss a few months),” MLB analyst Danny Vietti wrote via Twitter.

Some of those injuries could be attributed to his style of play, but others were a fluke.

Tatis was involved in what was described as a minor motorcycle accident in his native Dominican Republic in December which could have resulted in a broken wrist.

San Diego will be without its best player until at least June, and will miss his big stick, especially as they try to keep pace with the Los Angeles Dodgers and San Francisco Giants.

Last year, Tatis reduced .282/.364/.611 with 42 home runs, 99 runs, 97 RBIs and 25 stolen bases in just 130 games.
