Several players are all out of the Padres’ lineup due to injuries

Must read

SAN DIEGO — The San Diego Padres were without star right fielder Fernando Tatis Jr., left fielder Jurickson Profar and catcher Luis Campusano for their game Saturday against the NL Central-leading Milwaukee Brewers.

Shortly before first pitch, Campusano was placed on the 10-day injured list, retroactive to Friday, with a bruised left thumb. Campusano was scratched before Friday night’s game. The Padres recalled catcher Brett Sullivan from Triple-A El Paso.

Tatis bruised his left triceps when hit with a pitch just above his elbow in the third inning of Friday night’s 9-5 win. He went down on one knee in pain and was checked by a trainer.



Tatis ran the bases and took his position in right field for the next two innings. When his turn in the batting order came up in the fifth, he was replaced by pinch-hitter Tyler Wade.

Manager Mike Shildt said the injury wasn’t considered serious but that Tatis will be sore.

Tatis hit a 446-foot homer in Thursday night’s 7-6 win.

Profar left Friday night’s game after hitting a double in the seventh. He’s been dealing with patellar tendinitis in his left knee for several weeks.

David Peralta started in right field, Wade started in left field and Kyle Higashioka started at catcher on Saturday.

Right-hander Yu Darvish is scheduled to be activated from his second stint on the injured list on Tuesday and start against the Washington Nationals, Shildt said.
