The Union-Tribune, citing multiple sources, reported that there was some concern that the initial surgery Tatis had wouldn’t hold up long term, leading to the decision to have the second procedure. The newspaper reported that last week’s procedure involved replacing the original screws in Tatis’ wrist with a central screw.

Tatis is currently serving an 80-game suspension for testing positive for a performance-enhancing drug, a punishment levied by Major League Baseball in August. The ban will sideline him through the early part of next season, although just how long will depend on the length of the Padres’ postseason run.

After upsetting the Los Angeles Dodgers in the National League Division Series, the Padres open the NL Championship Series against the Philadelphia Phillies on Tuesday.
