The San Diego Padres appear to have avoided a disaster. First baseman Eric Hosmer was hit by a pitch on Friday night, and while there was some concern initially, the X-rays have come back negative.

It seems like he's avoided a stint on the Injured List, but he might miss a game or two while he gets right.

Eric Hosmer Injury Update

Losing Hosmer would be a disaster for the first-place Padres. The team has a slim 1.5 game lead in the NL West over the Los Angeles Dodgers and San Francisco Giants. Losing Hosmer's bat would've been a big blow to San Diego.

Hosmer is slashing .293/.354/.427 with 5 home runs and 29 RBI.

Hopefully the 31-year-old can get back on the field sometime this weekend.
