Tatis Jr. had an outstanding rookie year, but because he had outperformed his statcast data so significantly, many fantasy managers were worried that his numbers would regress in 2020. Although his batting average did come down (to a still respectable .277), he not only staved off regression, but he improved significantly in most areas. He cut his strikeout rate by 6%, upped his walk rate by 2.5%, and led the league in average exit velocity, hard-hit rate, and barrel percentage. The fact that he's likely to throw in 25-30 steals over the course of a full season is just the cherry on top of elite fantasy production. He's a top-five overall pick with little or no downside and massive upside even off his incredible 2020 numbers.

Fernando Tatis Jr. and Padres agree to 14-year, $340 million extension

Dennis Lin of The Athletic reports the Padres and star SS Fernando Tatis Jr. have agreed to a 14-year, $340 million contract extension.

Fantasy Impact

Considered by many to be the face of baseball, this extension keeps Tatis in San Diego for a long time. The superstar shortstop has played 143 games in his MLB career and has hit .301 with a .956 OPS in them. Additionally, he has totaled 39 homers and 27 stolen bases. Those are some pretty elite numbers, especially for fantasy purposes. The upcoming season will be Tatis' age-22 campaign and he's already one of the best players our sport has to offer.
