Fernando Tatis Jr. returns to lineup Monday

Fernando Tatis Jr. (illness) is starting in Monday's Cactus League matchup against the Dodgers, leading off and playing shortstop.

Fantasy Impact

Tatis participated in a full workout on Sunday, and is set to return to game action. Assuming he'll build up normally from here, he should be set to go for Opening Day.

Fernando Tatis Jr. (illness) could return to game action Monday

Fernando Tatis Jr. (illness) returned to action at Padres camp on Friday.

Fantasy Impact

The 21-year-old phenom could resume playing Cactus League games as early as Monday. Tatis should ultimately be fine for Opening Day as he will have three weeks to get ready.

Fernando Tatis Jr. still recovering from the flu

Fernando Tatis Jr. (illness) returned to the Padres' spring training facility Thursday, but will need a few more days to recover before rejoining the team's lineup in game action.

Fantasy Impact

Tatis lost weight during his bout with the flu, so the Padres will likely ease him back into action. With Opening Day three weeks away, Tatis will have plenty of time to rebuild himself physically. That's assuming that he makes his way to game action in the near future.

Fernando Tatis Jr. to remain at shortstop

Padres GM A.J. Preller says the team has no plans to move Fernando Tatis Jr. to center field.

Fantasy Impact

Tatis made a ton of flashy highlights at shortstop last season but also struggled with some routine plays. It would be silly to give up on him as a shortstop this early in his career, however. The 21-year-old hit 22 homers and stole 16 bases in just 84 games as a rookie last season. He's often going in the second round of fantasy drafts this spring.

Fernando Taits Jr. (back) to resume baseball activities in December

Fernando Tatis Jr. (back) is scheduled to resume baseball activities in December.

Fantasy Impact

Tatis' rookie season ended in August due to a stress reaction in his lower back. The good news is his rehab is on the right track and he should be a full-go for spring training. It's possible Tatis and the Padres start discussing a long-term contract this winter as well.
