Injury Updates

https://www.mlb.com/padres/news/padres-non-roster-invites-decisions

Right-handers Trey Wingenter and Ronald Bolaños have yet to pitch this spring as they battle nagging injuries. Manager Jayce Tingler indicated that Bolaños (rib soreness) is closer to a return than Wingenter (shoulder inflammation).

"Bolaños probably has a chance to get out there a little bit before Wing," Tingler said. "Wing got a small injection and has been working on strength stuff."

Both were unlikely to crack the Opening Day roster anyway. Tingler indicated that Bolaños might return to the mound for game action next week, and he should still have enough time to be built up for the start of the Minor League season.

Wingenter, on the other hand, seems likely to open the year on the injured list. He has posted a 5.14 ERA (but a 3.78 FIP) over two seasons in the Padres' bullpen.

Strahm will undergo surgery to repair the patellar tendon in his right knee, Kevin Acee of The San Diego Union-Tribune reports.

ROTOWIRE RECOMMENDS: Strahm was bothered by a knee issue for much of the 2020 season, but he's expected to be ready for spring training following his surgery. He underwent a similar surgery on his left knee in 2017.
