San Diego Padres shortstop Fernando Tatis Jr. exited Friday's game in the first inning after suffering a left shoulder injury while sliding into third base.

Tatis appeared to be in considerable pain while laying on the field. He eventually walked off with the training staff and into the clubhouse.

Manager Jayce Tingler told reporters following the game that Tatis suffered a partially dislocated shoulder and would be re-evaluated Saturday.

The 22-year-old has battled shoulder issues throughout the season. He suffered a shoulder subluxation in April on a swing that landed him on the injured list. Tatis also injured his shoulder making a defensive play in June.

Entering Friday, Tatis was hitting .290/.371/.650 with 31 homers and 23 stolen bases in 86 games.
