Padres star Fernando Tatis Jr. won’t be riding motorcycles anytime soon.
The San Diego Padres have made an official decision on whether or not Tatis can ride motorcycles from now on.
Padres manager Bob Melvin announced on Tuesday that Tatis’ motorcycle days “are over.”
On Monday the baseball world learned that Fernando Tatis Jr. has a fractured wrist that’ll require surgery. He’ll miss around three months.
Questions surrounding Tatis’ love of motorcycles immediately came into play. It was believed the injury had to do with falls he had while riding a motorcycle.
When asked about his motorcycle accident, Tatis wrote headlines when he replied: “Which one?”
The good news is Tatis’ wrist fracture wasn’t a result of a motorcycle accident. It’s believe he sustained it during offseason training.
Tatis’ injury could have been found much sooner had the lockout not been in play. Players weren’t able to meet with team doctors during the lockout, meaning players had to delay surgeries. Teams didn’t want their players meeting with non-team doctors.
Tatis, meanwhile, will miss the next three months. He’s expected to be ready to go by mid-June, although the exact timeline hasn’t been specified.
