Fernando Tatis Jr. News
San Diego Padres shortstop Fernando Tatis Jr.'s (wrist) CT scan on Monday didn't reveal the level of healing that the Padres had hoped for, so his timeline will be moved back. Fantasy managers can forget about Tatis making his season debut later this month, as that is now out of the question, and he might not return until after the All-Star break now. The 23-year-old has done some running and has fielded ground balls, but he's yet to be cleared to swing a bat as he recovers from a fractured wrist. The young phenom remains without a timetable for a return, but he should be stashed in all fantasy formats after leading the league with 42 home runs while driving in 97 and stealing 25 bags in just 130 games last year.
San Diego Padres shortstop Fernando Tatis Jr.'s (wrist) CT scan is expected to take place next week. The Padres are being extremely conservative with their star shortstop, and they are hoping the scan shows that he's sufficiently healed to begin swinging a bat. Tatis is recovering from a fractured left wrist that he suffered in the offseason while riding a motorcycle. There's a chance he could make his season debut at the end of June, but that seems overly optimistic at this point, especially with the Padres taking things slow. The 23-year-old phenom will be a must-start whenever he does return, though, after hitting .292/.369/.596 with a .965 OPS, a league-leading 42 home runs, 97 RBI and 25 stolen bases in just 130 games in 2021.
San Diego Padres shortstop Fernando Tatis Jr. (wrist) has another CT scan on his left wrist scheduled for later this week, and if all goes well, he could resume swinging a bat shortly after that. Tatis took some lightly rolled grounders and made some relay throws on Monday. The 23-year-old All-Star is slowly ramping up his baseball activities as he recovers from a fractured wrist that he suffered while riding a motorcycle in the offseason. A best-case scenario could have Tatis making his 2022 season debut later this month. Tatis was an absolute beast in his third MLB season last year, hitting .282/.364/.611 with a .975 OPS, a league-leading 42 home runs, 97 RBI, 99 runs scored and 25 stolen bases in just 130 games.
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.
