Tatis is currently scheduled to return to the Padres on Friday, April 16th. From what we understand about his shoulder injury, he should be okay to resume playing. However, all it'll take is one swing to re-aggravate the issue. This makes Tatis a riskier bet than the top-four of Ronald Acuna, Mike Trout, Juan Soto, and Mookie Betts. Still, the upside is undeniable. Tatis checks in at No. 8 overall in my latest ranks, behind those four bats and the top three SPs.

Tatis Jr. suffered a a shoulder subluxation which looked incredibly painful and which put him on the IL. He's reportedly feeling better and should return soon, but there are obvious concerns about his ability to stay healthy and avoid surgery this year, considering that he's already been bothered by the shoulder twice. You're happily starting him whenever he's in the lineup, but if you can sell him at anywhere close to his spring value, you should.
