Fernando Tatis Jr. leaves San Diego Padres’ game vs. San Francisco Giants with left shoulder injury

San Diego Padres star Fernando Tatis Jr. had to leave Monday night's 3-2 loss to the San Francisco Giants at Petco Park with a left shoulder subluxation.

Tatis will be re-evaluated Tuesday, the Padres announced.

The injury happened in the third inning, when Tatis struck out against Giants pitcher Anthony DeSclafani.

Immediately after following through on his swing, Tatis went down in a heap in pain holding his left arm. He was checked out by team trainers and then removed from the game. Ha-Seong Kim replaced Tatis at shortstop for the Padres.

The 22-year-old Tatis left a game late in spring training with left shoulder discomfort but was back two days later. Manager Jayce Tingler said then that Tatis had been dealing with left shoulder discomfort since his minor league days. Tatis later said he'd had it since rookie ball.

Tatis — who is arguably the "Face of Basball" — agreed to a 14-year, $340 million contract extension with the Padres in February.

Tatis was hitting .167 with one home run in 16 at-bats this season. He has committed five errors through the first four games.
