Report: Tatis OK after accident in Dominican Republic
Tatis was taken to hospital for treatment but suffered only minor scrapes.
Details about the accident aren't yet available. A motorcycle was involved, though it's unclear if Tatis was the one using that vehicle, according to Acee, who cited a report from Dominican journalist Baudilio Jimenez.
The Padres are unable to comment on the incident because of Major League Baseball's ongoing lockout. While MLB players are locked out without a collective bargaining agreement, teams can't have contact with or comment on any of their players.
Tatis, 22, finished third in National League MVP voting this year after hitting .282/.364/.611 with an NL-high 42 homers in 130 games for the Padres. He signed a 14-year, $340-million extension with San Diego last spring.
