The San Diego Padres placed second baseman Xander Bogaerts on the 10-day IL with a fractured left shoulder, the team announced Wednesday.

Bogaerts' shoulder - which shows no indication of a labrum tear and therefore shouldn't require surgery - will likely sideline him until the late summer, per Kevin Acee of The San Diego Union-Tribune.

"Obviously, he'll be on the sidelines for a period of time. It's really impossible to say how long - we're still gathering information," Padres manager Mike Shildt said, according to Jeff Wallner of The Associated Press.

The club selected outfielder David Peralta in a corresponding move.

Bogaerts suffered the injury diving for a ball during the first game of Monday's doubleheader against the Braves. The infielder exited with trainers after being unable to throw the ball he recovered.

The four-time All-Star has struggled in the second season of his 11-year, $280-million deal with the Padres. He's slashing .219/.265/.316 with four home runs and 14 RBIs.

The Padres' plan to replace Bogaerts remains fluid.

"The good news is we have options between three or four different guys," Shildt said. "We're still in the process of figuring things out."
