San Diego shortstop Fernando Tatis Jr. appeared to hurt his left shoulder or arm Friday, prompting his to leave the Padres’ home game against the Colorado Rockies in the first inning.
With Tatis on first base after a single, Manny Machado hit a grounder that kicked away from Rockies third baseman Ryan McMahon. Tatis came around second and tried to advance to third, but he was retired when McMahon threw to shortstop Brendan Rodgers, who moved over to cover the bag.
Tatis went to the ground after he was tagged out, clutching his left arm.
He dealt with left shoulder separations several times earlier this year.
Tatis, 22, was a first-time All-Star this year. Entering play Friday, he led the National League in homers (31), stolen bases (23), runs (78), slugging percentage (.650) and on-base-plus-slugging percentage (1.021).
