Fernando Tatis Jr.
SS - SD
Fernando Tatis Jr. went 1-3 with a single and a walk in the Padres' win over the Pirates on Wednesday.
Tatis singled off JT Brubaker in the third inning on Wednesday. Tatis got hot after returning from a shoulder injury, but has cooled down since then. Tatis has hit just .182 over the past week and his season average is back down to .229. Tatis will continue to face teams with subpar pitching over the next few weeks, so he will still have plenty of opportunities to get hot and turn it around.
Fernando Tatis Jr. went 1-3 with a home run, a walk, an RBI, a run scored, and a strikeout in the Padres' loss to the Giants on Sunday.
Tatis poked a fastball that was outside and off the plate over the wall down the right field line for his eighth home run of the season. Tatis's home run only traveled 338 feet, but the fact that he was able to get enough on that swing to drive the ball out was an impressive feat in itself. Tatis is still hitting just .240 on the year, but he's hitting .296 in his last 7 games. The Padres have a weak upcoming schedule, so more could be coming from Tatis in the next couple weeks.
Fernando Tatis Jr. went 2-4 with a single, a double, two RBI, and a run scored in the Padres' win over the Diamondbacks on Wednesday.
Tatis put a ball in play in four of his five plate appearances on Wednesday, and all four balls he put in play came off the bat at 100+ MPH. Tatis should have been 3 for 5 on the night, but he was robbed of a home run by Josh Rojas in the top of the 8th. Tatis has remained hot over the past week and now has his average up above .260. He'll continue to face sub-par pitching in the coming weeks, so if there was ever time to rely on Tatis to carry your fantasy lineup, it may be right now.
Fernando Tatis Jr. went 1-4 with a double and a strikeout in the Padres' loss to the Diamondbacks on Tuesday.
Tatis did not record a hard hit ball event on Tuesday, but was able to double off Merrill Kelly in the 6th inning. Tatis's numbers have begun to come back to normal after a very slow start in 2021. His .623 slugging percentage is about what you would expect out of Tatis. Now he will have to continue hitting and taking his walks to get his average and OBP back in order. He'll face some weak pitching in the Padres' next few series, so keep an eye out for some Tatis magic in the coming weeks.
Fernando Tatis Jr. went 2-4 with a home run, a single, two walks, two stolen bases, and a strikeout in the Padres' extra-innings win over the Dodgers on Sunday.
Tatis hit his fifth home run of the series off Dustin May in the 4th inning. Tatis was an absolute monster in the four game series against the Dodgers, hitting .444 with 5 home runs. Tatis also showed off his speed in the win on Sunday, stealing two bases. Tatis's numbers are beginning to climb their way back to where fantasy managers expect them to be. This is what can happen when you have a guy like Tatis on your team, as there will be weeks where he can carry an entire fantasy team over the line for a victory. If Tatis can stay on the field and continues to play like this, fantasy managers will soon be laughing about the fact that they ever doubted Tatis because of his slow start. The Padres will face a number of sub-par pitching staffs in May, so a huge month could be coming for Tatis.
