He left the game.Tatis, who entered the year as a top prospect, is hitting .300 with six homers and 13 RBIs.Though Tatis remained on the active roster, manager Andy Green said it's too soon to know if the rookie will avoid the injured list. He said the team will be careful to protect the health of one of its top young players."We care a lot about him. We think a lot of him. We love the way he's started his big league career," Green said. "We want to take care of him. We want to put him in the best position where he has the best shot at health for a long time. We haven't made any final determinations of what that plan is at this moment."A decision on the inj... [More]

Tue Mar 2619:19Lewis closes out impressive spring training for Mariners
SEATTLE (AP) — Kyle Lewis visualized it so many times. A touted first-round draft pick by the Mariners, Lewis was certain by the time 2019 rolled around, he would be a major-league starting outfielder.Those thoughts were three years ago, before a devastating knee injury caused a major setback to his career dreams."I definitely felt I was on the right path," Lewis said. "But honestly, I think I'm still on the right path. Everybody gets thrown a curveball in life."Lewis and other top Mariners prospects got a chance to spend this week in Seattle during a two-game exhibition series against the San Diego Padres. Lewis grounded out and walked Tuesday in San Diego's 1-0 win over the Mariners to close out spring training."I'm just trying to soak in the moment and enjoy it," Lewis said.Lewis was the 11th overall pick in the 2016 draft as a talented outfielder from Mercer University. Only 30 games into a pro career at Class A Everett, Lewis suffered a gruesome knee injury on a collision at hom... [More]

Mon Oct 1 201818:39Hosmer, Padres stumble as rebuilding project drags on
SAN DIEGO (AP) — Eric Hosmer, San Diego's $144 million man, acknowledges he simply wasn't as good as he needed to be in what was supposed to be a steppingstone season for the rebuilding Padres.The burst of energy provided by Hosmer's signing during spring training didn't last long. The Padres, who have had three waves of young talent come up since beginning their deep rebuild during the 2016 season, staggered through another dismal year, finishing last in the NL West at 66-96, five losses worse than in 2017.Hosmer's average of .253 was down 65 points and his on-base percentage was his lowest in four seasons. His 18 homers and 65 RBIs were also his lowest in four seasons."Not where I want to be," said Hosmer, who was an All-Star and World Series champion while with Kansas City. "It was just a down year, definitely not the way I wanted to perform here the first year. Nothing I can do about it now. All I can do is go put in the work in the offseason and try to be ready to go next spring... [More]
