Padres' Xander Bogaerts leaves game with shoulder injury

ATLANTA -- San Diego Padres second baseman Xander Bogaerts injured his left shoulder and was removed from the first game of a doubleheader Monday against the Atlanta Braves.

Bogaerts landed on the shoulder while diving for a bases-loaded grounder hit by Ronald Acuna Jr. in the third inning. Bogaerts stopped the grounder but was unable to make a throw on Acuna's run-scoring infield hit.

Bogaerts immediately signaled to the bench for assistance, and a trainer examined the second baseman before escorting him off the field.

Manager Mike Shildt said imaging tests on Bogaerts' shoulder were negative and more tests had been scheduled.

"The initial feedback is the best-case scenario," Shildt said.

Shildt said it was too early to know if Bogaerts would be placed on the injured list, but said if more tests were negative the second baseman's status likely would be day-to-day.

Tyler Wade replaced Bogaerts at second base. The run-scoring single by Acuna gave Atlanta a 5-0 lead over Dylan Cease and the Padres. The Padres rallied for six unanswered runs, including four in the eighth inning, to win 6-5.

Bogaerts entered Monday's first game of a doubleheader hitting .220 with four homers and 14 RBIs.
