The Washington Nationals finally will open their season Tuesday, but they will do so with a patchwork roster due to COVID-19 issues.

The Nats announced that starting pitchers Patrick Corbin and Jon Lester, catchers Yan Gomes and Alex Avila, first baseman Josh Bell, infielders Josh Harrison and Jordy Mercer, left fielder Kyle Schwarber and reliever Brad Hand have all been placed on the injured list, though none with a specified injury.

A coronavirus outbreak has sidelined 11 players, four of whom tested positive for COVID-19, though the team has not revealed which players tested positive and which are in protocols.

Padres placed SS Fernando Tatis Jr. on the 10-day injured list with a left shoulder subluxation.

Tatis dislocated his shoulder on a hard swing-and-miss Monday night against the Giants, but the early exams were apparently encouraging and the hope is that a treatment plan will get him back on the field later this month. Maybe even 10 days from now. There had been chatter about possible season-ending surgery, and it could be reconsidered if the rest and rehab route doesn't work. Ha-seong Kim is starting at shortstop for the Padres on Tuesday and is likely to be the primary fill-in there until Tatis is ready to return.
