San Diego Padres outfielder Juan Soto (back) is expected to return to the lineup on Tuesday against the Miami Marlins. The 24-year-old was originally in the starting lineup for Sunday's game against the Yankees but was a late scratch after his back tightened up on him in the batting cage during warmups. He lobbied to stay in the lineup, according to beat writer AJ Cassavell, but he was taken out as a precaution. The Padres have Monday off so the extra day of rest should do Soto some good before the team kicks off their series with the Marlins.
San Diego Padres outfielder Juan Soto (back) has been scratched from Sunday's lineup due to back tightness. Soto was originally in the lineup against the Yankees and was scratched late so something must have flared up during pregame warmups. The Padres should make a formal announcement following the game. Jose Azocar is starting in left field in his place.
San Diego Padres shortstop Xander Bogaerts (wrist) has returned to the team's starting lineup on Sunday against the New York Yankees and right-hander Gerrit Cole, and he'll be hitting cleanup for the Friars. Bogaerts took Saturday's game off while dealing with wrist soreness, but it's apparently not much of an issue. Ha-Seong Kim will move back to third base and is hitting seventh in the batting order. After a strong month of April in which he hit over .300, Bogaerts has struggled in the month of May, hitting .193 (16-for-83) with three doubles, a homer and six RBI in 22 games. His wrist could have something to do with it, but DFS managers will probably want to avoid him against the Yankees' ace in the series finale.
According to Kevin Acee of the San Diego Union-Tribune, Padres shortstop Xander Bogaerts (wrist) is expected to return to the starting lineup for Sunday's series finale with the Yankees. The veteran has been battling his latest installment of pre-existing wrist discomfort for a few weeks, an injury he suffered in 2017 after getting hit by a pitch. Fortunately, he still appeared on Saturday by serving as a pinch hitter. Bogaerts received a cortisone shot in the wrist during spring training. However, it was a short-term solution, so fantasy managers will probably have to deal with an occasional night off moving ahead, assuming things don't get worse.
San Diego Padres shortstop Xander Bogaerts (wrist) was held out of Saturday's game against the New York Yankees. The 30-year-old is dealing with wrist soreness, so the team decided to hold him out as a precaution. However, Bogaerts was able enter the contest as a pinch hitter in the ninth inning. That being said, it sounds like this wrist injury is a minor issue. The hope is that Bogaerts won't require a trip to the injured list. Fantasy managers will have to check back for another update on his status.
