Padres-Dodgers is the matchup of the year, so Tatis missing any part of that rivalry this season would be a tragedy. And what’s worse is that Padres fans haven’t had an opportunity to watch him live in over a year because of COVID regulations. The least the baseball gods could do is let San Diego enjoy their new $340 million man, right?
The face of Major League Baseball is hurt, and we’re just waiting on an update. Hopefully it’s not as serious as it appeared.
