With Opening Day right around the corner, some major concern has just arrived for the San Diego Padres. In a spring training tilt with Cincinnati Reds on Tuesday, star shortstop Fernando Tatis Jr. appears to have hurt himself on a play he makes in his sleep.

With a groundout coming his way, Tatis Jr. fielded the ball and fired it to first. Moments later, he was walking off the field in some discomfort and had his hands on his hips. Obviously, this is not good for San Diego.

With Tatis Jr. walking off and removing himself from the game against the Reds, the hope from everyone all over California is that he’s not seriously injured and that his status for Opening Day is not in question. Tatis Jr. is one of the best players in all of baseball and his power at the dish is enough to give pitchers anxiety when going up against him.

The 22-year-old standout stole countless headlines in February when he signed a 14-year contract with San Diego worth a mind-blowing $340 million. Now, Padres fans must stay tuned to see what exactly happened and if he’ll end up missing extended time or not.
