  • Padres' Juan Soto: Scheduled to take BP Sunday

    Soto (oblique) isn't expected to play in another Cactus League game but will go through a workout Sunday and is scheduled to take batting practice, AJ Cassavell of reports.

    Cassavell notes that if all of that goes well, Soto will get at bats on the back fields of the Padres' spring training facility in Peoria, Ariz. on Monday with the expectation that the activity would be enough to confirm his availability for the Thursday's Opening Day game versus the Rockies. The outfielder is dealing with a left oblique injury, but a recent MRI revealed only a minimal strain.

  • Padres' Juan Soto: Advances to tee work

    Soto (oblique) will hit off a tee Saturday, Bob Scanlan of Bally Sports San Diego reports.

    Soto is dealing with a strained left oblique, but it's considered a minor issue. He took dry swings Friday and is already advancing to the next step Saturday, so Opening Day seems to be still in play if his progress continues.

  • Padres' Juan Soto: Taking dry swings Friday

    Soto (oblique) will take some dry swings Friday, Kevin Acee of The San Diego Union-Tribune reports.

    It's a big step as Soto tries to ramp things back up in time for Opening Day. The star outfielder suffered a minor left oblique strain in a minor-league game this past weekend. At this point, Soto is expected to be ready to roll for the start of the regular season, but he's working with a tight window.

  • Padres' Juan Soto: MRI reveals minimal strain

    Padres manager Bob Melvin announced that Tuesday's MRI on Soto's oblique strain did not reveal anything significant, Jeff Sanders of The San Diego Union-Tribune reports.

    Melvin called the strain "minimal" and mentioned that the team is hopeful that Soto will be able to resume swinging in the next couple of days, and that he's optimistic that the outfielder will get more at-bats in the Cactus League before its conclusion. It's great news for all involved after Soto was removed from Sunday's game with the strained oblique. He should be considered day-to-day, and at this point it seems likely that Soto will be ready to play for the Padres on Opening Day.

  • Padres' Juan Soto: To have MRI on oblique

    Padres manager Bob Melvin said Tuesday that Soto will get an MRI on his strained left oblique, Jeff Sanders of the San Diego Union-Tribune reports.

    Soto suffered the injury while playing in a minor-league game Sunday in Padres camp. Melvin reiterated to reporters Tuesday afternoon that the belief is it's "fairly mild" and added that the 24-year-old outfielder remains a possibility for Opening Day. Soto also dealt with a calf issue earlier this spring, though that proved to be a minor blip. Even if he doesn't appear in an exhibition game the rest of the way, the hope is that he could still suit up for the Padres on March 30 against the Rockies.

  • Padres' Juan Soto: Day-to-day with oblique issue

    Soto was removed from a minor-league spring game as a precautionary measure due to a mild oblique strain Sunday, Kevin Acee of the San Diego Union-Tribune reports.

    Soto's oblique issue is considered mild, and he's being labeled as day-to-day following his departure. Although the Padres are downplaying the severity of his injury, it's somewhat concerning to see the 24-year-old develop an oblique injury with a week and a half remaining until Opening Day. Soto will presumably be monitored further in the coming days, but it wouldn't be surprising to see the Padres monitor his workload over the final few Cactus League games, especially since he also dealt with a left calf issue in late February and early March.

  • Padres' Juan Soto: Cleared to play consecutive games

    Soto (calf) will be allowed to play consecutive games in the World Baseball Classic moving forward, Bob Nightengale of USA Today reports.

    At the start of the tournament, the Padres had asked Team Dominican Republic to limit Soto's workload after he battled a bit of left calf tightness between late February and early March. But there are no more lingering concerns about that injury, and there will be no more WBC limitations on the 24-year-old superstar. He's gone 4-for-9 with a home run and two doubles through two games played for the Dominican side.

  • Padres' Juan Soto: Won't play back-to-back WBC games

    Soto (calf) will not be allowed to play consecutive games in the World Baseball Classic, he told Enrique Rojas of ESPN Deportes on Monday.

    Soto homered and reached base three times Monday for Team Dominican Republic against Nicaragua and says his left calf -- which has limited him some in Padres camp -- has "felt excellent." However, the Padres are not allowing the outfielder to play back-to-back games as a precaution, so he'll sit out Tuesday's contest versus Israel. It's an understandable stance by the team, even as Soto has tried to talk the Padres out of it. The good news here is that Soto's calf injury seems like a non-issue.

  • Padres' Juan Soto: Headed to Miami to join Team D.R.

    Soto (calf) left for Miami late Thursday to join Team Dominican Republic for the World Baseball Classic, Kevin Acee of The San Diego Union-Tribune reports.

    Soto has dealt with some calf tightness this spring, but the assumption has been that it wouldn't keep him from playing for his native Dominican Republic in the WBC. Team D.R. opens its schedule Saturday against Venezuela, and Soto should be in the lineup.

  • Padres' Juan Soto: Steals base in back-field game

    Soto (calf) drew two walks and stole second base in a back-field game Thursday, Kevin Acee of the San Diego Union-Tribune reports.

    Soto also scored from third base on a groundout after swiping second, and it all serves as a positive indication that his tight left calf was never really a significant issue. He will soon join up with Team Dominican Republic in the World Baseball Classic and looks poised for a monstrous first full season with the Padres.
