Joining Tatis on the list were utility players Jurickson Profar and Jorge Mateo, the Padres announced before their game at Colorado.

San Diego was expected to make corresponding moves later in the day.

Tatis spent time on the injured list last month with inflammation in his left shoulder.

He leads the Padres with nine homers and 23 runs scored.
