Talking Friars Ep. 362: Fernando Tatis Jr. Has Knee Contusion + Nick Martinez Starts for Team USA

Plus, we might have already seen Craig Stammen’s last game in the big leagues

MLB: Spring Training-Chicago White Sox at San Diego Padres Rick Scuteri-USA TODAY Sports

A day after getting his first hits of Spring Training, Fernando Tatis Jr. was scratched from the lineup with a left knee contusion. Adrian Morejon then had to leave Sunday’s game with an elbow issue. Should we be concerned? Plus, Craig Stammen told Kevin Acee on Sunday that he’s unlikely to pitch again after injuring his shoulder on Friday. How should he be remembered as a Padre? And last but not least, Nick Martinez made the start for Team USA against Mexico in the World Baseball Classic. How’d he do? All that and more on the latest episode of Talking Friars!
