Fernando Tatis Jr. News
After a 4-for-12 series over the weekend with a pair of doubles against the San Francisco Giants, San Diego Padres shortstop/outfielder Fernando Tatis Jr. cemented his superstar status in 2021. Despite playing in just 130 games, Tatis led the National League with 42 homers, slashing .282/.364/.611 with 25 steals and 196 runs-plus-RBI in 546 plate appearances. While concerns linger about his recurring shoulder issues, the 22-year-old claims he won't require offseason surgery. After signing a monster 14-year contract before the season, Tatis will enter his fourth big league season as one of baseball's most exciting players. With elite batted-ball abilities and salivating power/speed combination, he'll contend to be the No. 1 overall fantasy pick in 2022.
San Diego Padres shortstop/outfielder Fernando Tatis Jr. is not in the starting lineup for Wednesday's game against Max Scherzer and the Los Angeles Dodgers. The Padres are no longer in contention for the postseason and as a result, Tatis is sitting for the second time in three games. Jake Cronenworth is covering shortstop on Wednesday. Tatis has had a monster season, slashing .282/.367/.612 with 41 home runs, 25 stolen bases, 95 RBI and 98 runs over 125 games. Expect for the Padres to give him at least one more day off over their last four games of the year.
San Diego Padres shortstop/outfielder Fernando Tatis Jr. went 2-for-5 with an RBI in the team's 6-5 loss to the San Francisco Giants on Tuesday. He was also caught stealing in his only stolen base attempt in the game. Tatis is slashing .308/.384/.492 over 17 games this month and he has a .286/.368/.618 slash line to go along with 39 home runs and 25 stolen bases on the year. He leads the league in both xSLG (.618) and hard-hit rate (56.4%) while also ranking in the 99th percentile in average exit velocity (94.1 mph) and barrel rate (21.8%).
If you were not a believer in San Diego Padres shortstopFernando Tatis Jr. after his elite half season in 2019, you probably are now after he took his game to an even higher level in 2020. So far, the guy has a 162-game average line of 44 homers, 31 steals, a .301 batting average and a .374 on-base percentage, numbers that few other players can even dream of. His career .366 BABIP casts some doubts about him really being an above-average contributor in the batting average category, but his elite batted-ball metrics (career .371 xwOBA, 92.7 average exit velocity, 51.7% hard-hit rate) ease those concerns after you pull back that layer. There are no way two ways about it, Tatis is a tippy top-tier hitter for 2021. Maybe there are safer bets out there with bigger samples of data backing their elite production, but Tatis should absolutely be a top-five drafted fantasy commodity, and anything after that is straight-up theft.
