Fernando Tatis Jr. Hopes to Stay Hot as Padres Face Brewers

After a 4-for-5 performance that included a 446-foot homer during San Diego’s 7-6 win over the visiting Milwaukee Brewers on Thursday, it’s easy to forget that Padres right fielder Fernando Tatis Jr. has been playing with a right quad injury since April.

However, Tatis figures to remain in the lineup Friday night when San Diego and Milwaukee get together for the second game of a four-game series.

Tatis Battling Through Injury

“I’m just not at my best,” Tatis said. “I’m not stealing bases and I’m not running the way I know I can run. I’m a little bit banged up right now, but we’re going to keep fighting to see how we can find a way to stay on the field.”

The only sign Thursday that the injury was affecting Tatis was when he raced around third to score on Jurickson Profar’s seventh-inning double. Tatis’ limp became a little more noticeable, but he was able to finish the game.

“It’s really deep in my quad, right next to the bone,”. The medical staff and myself have been trying to figure out what it is. We’re doing some stuff that can help it, but (I’m) still not all the way back.”

Fernando Tatís Jr

Despite the injury, Tatis is putting up solid numbers. He enters the Friday night game batting .280 with 14 homers and 36 RBIs. Earlier this year, he enjoyed a career-high, 17-game hitting streak.

Cease Looking to Bounce Back

While Tatis expects better wellbeing, colleague Dylan Stop (6-6, 3.95 Time) holds back nothing. During Sunday’s 11-6 road loss to the New York Mets, the right-hander was badly hurt. In three and a half innings, he gave up three walks and five strikeouts while allowing seven hits and seven runs.

Stop is 1-1 with a 2.08 Time in two vocation begins against the Brewers. He succeeded at Milwaukee on April 16 subsequent to terminating six innings and yielding one sudden spike in demand for two hits and five strolls with seven strikeouts.

Rea’s Strong Season

The Brewers will counter with Colin Rea (6-2, 3.29 ERA), who is enjoying the best year of his injury-filled major league career that started with the Padres in 2015.

In his most recent beginning, Rea procured a success in the Brewers’ 5-4 triumph over the Cincinnati Reds on Sunday. In six innings, he struck out six while giving up four hits and three runs (two of which were earned). On April 13, 2023, in his only career appearance against San Diego, he pitched 5 2/3 innings and gave up just two hits and one run, earning a no-decision.

Brewers’ Bullpen Needs Relief

Milwaukee is hoping for some length from Rea after getting just 4 2/3 innings Thursday night from Bryse Wilson. The Brewers’ bullpen, which has been taxed lately, will get some help with the likely activation of veteran right-hander Jakob Junis (shoulder impingement) off the injured list before the Friday game.

Brewers manager Pat Murphy said of Junis, who has filled multiple roles during his career, “He’ll start in the ‘pen. If we started him on the front end, it would be for a couple of innings. If he comes out of his first few outings feeling great, we might stretch it a little bit. We need innings, obviously.”

Key Matchup: Padres vs. Brewers

As the series continues, all eyes will be on Tatis and his ability to keep producing despite his quad injury. The Padres will look to maintain their momentum and get another strong performance from Cease, while the Brewers hope Rea can keep their bullpen from being overworked.
