Parent star Fernando Tates, Jr., at the age of 22, finished third in NL MVP voting last season, but has yet to play this season due to a broken wrist in the off-season.

Estimates of Tatis’ return vary from early June to the All-Star break (in spring training, it was a promising timeline). Reports from last month suggested a possible goal in late June, but the Tats have not yet been able to move on to restoration.

On Tuesday, Pedres revealed that there was some bad news, whether it was a disaster or something more. Tatis had a CT scan on her wrist and it “did not show the level of hope Pedres had healed.” According to San Diego Union Tribune. As a result, whatever timeline Pedres had in mind for Tatis would have to be pushed back.

San Diego general manager AJ Pereller told reporters that the Tates were still not healthy enough to swing the bat. Prailer did not have a strong timeline, however Pedres is taking it “from week to week,” he said Instead of “month to month”.

On the bright side, the Padres have played really well without Tatis. They enter the game on Tuesday 38-24, which is good for a virtual tie over the NL West with the Dodgers. If he gets Tatis back in action sometime in July, it will be like doing nothing for one of the best baseball players in practice.

Tatis, 23, hit .282 / .364 / .611 (165 OPS +) in 130 games last season with 31 doubles, 42 homers, 97 RBI, 99 runs, 25 steels and 6.6 WAR. This past spring, it was revealed that Tatis’ wrist had been broken in a motorcycle accident, and he did not know it was broken until he arrived for spring training. He underwent surgery on March 16 to repair his fracture.
