Fernando Tatis Jr. News
When San Diego Padres shortstop Fernando Tatis Jr. was asked what position he'll play in 2023, he said: "Gotta talk to my manager," while adding that he's open to playing any position after the Padres signed shortstop Xander Bogaerts this offseason. Tatis also said he's been working at both outfield and infield as he prepares for the upcoming season. The 24-year-old superstar missed all of 2022 due to a fractured wrist and a suspension for performance-enhancing drugs. He was cleared resume swinging a bat in early January and is expected to take part in spring training. Despite the fact that he'll miss the first 20 games to close out his suspension, Tatis will continue to have sky-high expectations, even after missing all of 2022.
San Diego Padres shortstop/outfielder Fernando Tatis Jr. (shoulder, wrist) took swings in the batting cages on Thursday. Tatis was cleared to resume baseball activities on Jan. 6 and is expected to be ready for the start of spring training after missing all of the 2022 season due to a fractured wrist and a suspension for performance-enhancing drugs. The 24-year-old superstar will miss the first 20 games of the 2023 season to close out his suspension, but he's expected to be ready to go late in the first month of the season and will once again have high expectations despite missing all of 2022. Tatis is expected to move to the outfield this year due to the addition of Xander Bogaerts, so he will gain outfield eligibility for fantasy managers. Despite a lost season, he will be a top-five fantasy middle infielder in upcoming drafts.
San Diego Padres shortstop/outfielder Fernando Tatis Jr. (shoulder, wrist) has been cleared to resume baseball activities this weekend, according to a team source. Tatis is recovering from multiple surgeries in 2022. He had surgery on a partially torn labrum in his left shoulder in September and has had two surgeries on the scaphoid bone in his left wrist, with the latest one coming in October. The 24-year-old isn't eligible to return from his suspension until April 20, but he's expected to be ready for spring training. Tatis hasn't played since the end of 2021 and it's unclear exactly where he'll be playing defensively in 2023 after the addition of shortstop Xander Bogaerts. The young superstar has incredible upside when healthy, but even coming off multiple surgeries and a lost season in 2022, Tatis will be an early-round risk/reward fantasy commodity.
San Diego Padres shortstop/outfielder Fernando Tatis Jr. was fantastic between injuries in 2021, smashing 42 homers and stealing 25 bases in his scattered 546 plate appearances. That along with the .282/.364/.611 triple-slash line made him by far the best per-game contributor in the league. The problem now is that Tatis will miss at least a third of the 2022 season after it was revealed that he required surgery to repair a broken wrist. It would seem that it's a pretty good bet to miss half the season as well, and that leads to all kinds of other worries about him playing at all in 2022 if things don't go smoothly in recovery. While he's still a complete stud to roster in dynasty or keeper leagues, it would not seem wise to use any kind of real draft capital on him for 2022, no matter how good you'll think he'll be when on the field.
