Bad news for San Diego Padres fans: after making an early exit with an oblique injury on Tuesday, superstar Fernando Tatis Jr. is out of the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Chicago Cubs.

Padres manager Jayce Tingler said on Tuesday night that he doesn't expect this to be an extended absence, but it's still not great to see Tatis missing this one.

Tatis will likely undergo further tests on Wednesday to determine the severity of the injury, and in the meantime Padres fans will be holding their breath and crossing their fingers.

With no Tatis, FanDuel Sportsbook's MLB odds have the Padres as +104 underdogs against the Cubs on Wednesday.
