Fernando Tatis Jr. to begin rehab assignment this weekend

Fernando Tatis (wrist) will begin a rehab assignment with Double-A San Antonio on either Saturday or Sunday.

Fantasy Impact

Tatis is expected to play shortstop, center field, and designated hitter during his rehab assignment. He's has been fielding ground balls for a while now, so how he looks swinging the bat is what is going to play the biggest part in his progression to the majors. He will still likely need a relatively lengthy assignment given how long he's been out, but a mid-August return to the Padres is very much on the table.

Fernando Tatis Jr. to take live BP Monday

Fernando Tatis Jr. is scheduled to take live batting practice on Monday.

Fantasy Impact

Tatis Jr. has yet to play in a game for the Padres this season after landing on the 60-day IL with a left wrist fracture in early April. In 2021, he slashed .282/.364/.611 with 42 home runs, 97 RBIs, and 25 stolen bases. Tatis taking live batting practice is a positive step in the right direction as fantasy managers and the Padres eagerly await his return.

Fernando Tatis Jr. taking first on-field batting practice since surgery

Fernando Tatis Jr. is taking on-field batting practice on Tuesday for the first time since the wrist surgery that has left him out for the entirety of the 2022 season.

Fantasy Impact

This is another great step forward for Tatis, who had done some less demanding on-field work with the team last weekend in New York. The superstar is now on track to possibly participate in live at-bats in the next week or so which would then lead to a rehab assignment. So it looks like the 23-year-old is on track to return to the big league club sometime in August to lead a postseason push and provide some fantasy value to owners that have been patient with him all season.

Fernando Tatis Jr. beginning hitting progression Friday

Padres GM AJ Preller announced that Fernando Tatis Jr. will begin his hitting progression on Friday as he builds back to returning to the field.

Fantasy Impact

This is a huge step for Tatis, as it is one of the first signs of progress in baseball activities. With these new progressions, the 23-year-old could be on track for a return in early August if all goes according to plan. The Padres are going to need his big bat for their postseason run, and the 2021 All-Star should make an immediate impact whenever he does return to the field.

Fernando Tatis Jr. expecting scan results Wednesday

Fernando Tatis Jr. had another scan of his wrist Tuesday and met with his wrist surgeon. He is expecting results and an update Wednesday.

Fantasy Impact

This is a potentially big step in Tatis's return if his scans come back clean. He has been taking some swings but has still not been cleared for full game action. There's a chance he could be cleared for more activity today, which can put him on track for a late July or early August return.
