Fantasy Impact:

This is noteworthy as surgery would've presented some risk for Tatis' availability for the start of the season. Regardless, there is still risk involved with drafting him in fantasy, though. Tatis' shoulder popped out twice during spring training and three times throughout the regular season. He wound up missing just 22 games because of it, but we can't rule out the possibility that surgery is required at some point next summer. Despite the injury issues, Tatis led the National League with 42 homers last season. He also added outfield eligibility for 2022, so there's a good chance he's the unanimous No. 1 overall selection in fantasy roto drafts.
