Mookie Betts was placed on IL with a rib fracture. There is no current schedule for his return.
Manny Machado left the game on Sunday with a sprain on his ankle.
Absolutely the last thing Padres wants to see. Manny Machado appears to have injured his ankle after stepping on the ground. pic.twitter.com/8PJMZwAUNH

Machado had to be helped off the pitch as an injury meant he was unable to finish the game. The X-ray was negative, but it would not be surprising if it hit IL. CJ Abrams left the underage early to be challenged on Monday.
Harold Castro reluctantly left the field. Consider him on a daily basis now.
Tyler O’Neill reluctantly left the field. The Cardinals announced after the game that the move was a precaution, so hopefully he avoided serious injuries. Consider him on a daily basis at this time.
Various news and notes
According to several reports, O’Neil Cruz will be promoted from AAA to Majors on Monday.

Cruz is one of the best prospects in baseball with an enticing combination of power and speed. He hit nine home runs in the AAA this season and stole 11 bases while scoring 0.223 / 0.337 / 424 in 54 games. The question remains how much he will shoot. He started the season with fluctuations and missed a lot, but has improved his share and reduced his breakthrough rate to 23%. It is required in all formats.
Jack Suwinski won the Giants 3: 3 in three wins on Sunday.
What a day @jacksuwinski!
The third home team in the game is a substitution!

Suwinski had the game of his life and now has 11 home runs and two stolen bases this season, but despite the monster game, he still hits just 0.230 this season. It’s nice to see these types of games, but I don’t think there will be a breakthrough until he improves his momentum and pass.
In the victory game, Jerar Encarnacion won the forest 1: 4.
In the first game of his career, Jerar Encarnación’s first hit is a blow! 😱 pic.twitter.com/lRDqtrSgLE
– MLB (@MLB) June 19, 2022
Well, this is a good start to your career! Encarnacion smashed a minor with 0.313 / .385 / .518 13 home runs and four stolen bases, but he was hit 28%.
He runs quite a bit at first, but he has to limit his strokes if he wants to stay in the major tournament in the long run.
Andrew Heaney returned from the IL and scored five innings, allowing one well-earned run with five hits and walking, knocking out seven.

Heaney threw just two strokes, 74% fast balls and 26% slider, which was effective despite the fact that the command was spotty at times. On the right side, he only walked one batsman, which is great. I’ve been a Heaney fan for a long time, but I’m a little worried that the decline will be hard and fast.
Streaming jugs (less than 50% in CBS)
Today’s pitcher: Zach Davies from SD
There’s some risk here of how well San Diego has played lately, but Davies has hit well and Padres are worse off on the right than on the left.
High Risk Options: Alex Faedo in BOS, David Peterson vs. MIA, JT Brubaker vs. CHC
Jug for Tomorrow: Redi Detmers vs KC
Good collusion and Detmers has been better lately.
High risk options: James Kaprielian vs. SEA, Rich HIll vs. DET, Erick Fedde in BAL.
For those of you who want to see how these options work, I’m compiling a document that I’ve compiled to track statistics for recommended throwers. It does not include “high-risk options”.
