Juan Soto leaves game with shoulder contusion after being hit by fastball

Sep 8, 2022

Things haven't gone to plan since the San Diego Padres loaded up at the trade deadline.

Fernando Tatis Jr. has been suspended. Josh Hader has been a bust. On Wednesday, Juan Soto left Wednesday's game against the Arizona Diamondbacks after being hit by a pitch.

Fortunately for Soto, the Padres don't expect him to miss much time. Manager Bob Melvin told reporters after the 6-3 San Diego win that Soto sustained a shoulder contusion and hopes that he can return to action on Friday against the Los Angeles Dodgers after a day off on Thursday.
