Fernando Tatis Jr.
CF,RF,SS - SD
Padres SS/OF Fernando Tatis Jr. won't undergo surgery on his left shoulder this offseason.
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.
Fernando Tatis Jr. went 2-for-4 on the day, hitting his 30th double of the year in the process. He also struck out once.
Tatis is now hitting .283 on the year as he caps off what has still been a remarkable season. He has two games left against the Giants before he closes this one out.
Fernando Tatis Jr. went 0-for-4 on Tuesday, striking out three times and failing to reach base.
Tatis is now hitting .282 on the year as strikeouts continue to be a lingering problem for the young superstar. He'll look to get back on track in game two of the series against Cincinnati on Wednesday.
Fernando Tatis Jr. went 0-for-3 on Thursday, striking out once. He did salvage some of his fantasy day with two drawn walks and a run scored though.
It's encouraging to see Tatis use his plate discipline more, a tool of his that has been up and down this season. He and the Padres will now open a series against the Braves as they attempt for a last second playoff push.
Fernando Tatis Jr. went 2-for-5 on Wednesday, hitting a single and a solo home run in the seventh inning. He'd also draw a walk and strike out once.
Tatis is now hitting .287 on the year with 40 home runs and 94 RBIs. He is certainly still a high value fantasy asset and should be locked into lineups as he attempts to get back in the MVP race with two weeks left in the season.
