Notes 
 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.
