San Diego Padres shortstop Fernando Tatis Jr. departed Tuesday’s spring training game against the Cincinnati Reds due to left shoulder discomfort.

He will be re-evaluated on Wednesday, the Padres announced.

Tatis left after fielding a grounder to his right and making a one-hop throw to first base to retire Cincinnati’s Jonathan India to start the third inning.

Manager Jayce Tingler and a team trainer came out to assess Tatis, who walked off the field. A short time later, Tatis left the ballpark and headed to the team complex.

The 22-year-old Tatis recently signed a 14-year contract worth an estimated $340 million.

Tatis has a .301 career average with 39 homers, 98 RBIs and 27 stolen bases in 143 games over the past two seasons.
