Tue Sep 722:58Fernando Tatis Jr. May Undergo Shoulder Surgery In Offseason
San Diego Padres shortstop/outfielder Fernando Tatis Jr. is considering surgery to repair a labrum tear in his left shoulder, according to Kevin Acee of the San Diego Union-Tribune. The ailment kept him sidelined from July 31 until August 15. It was first reported that Tatis Jr. would not undergo surgery, but it now remains a possibility. If he does have the procedure, it would likely keep him out until next March, meaning he could be available to start next season. Tatis Jr. is having an MVP-type season, slashing .278/.366/.631 with 37 HRs and 24 SBs. Since returning from the injured list, he's hitting just .225 with six home runs and one stolen base in 18 games but remains a top player in every format.

San Diego Padres shortstop/outfielder Fernando Tatis Jr. carried the Friars to victory Monday against the Arizona Diamondbacks, going 3-for-5 with a home run, double and three RBI. Tatis launched his NL-leading 36th homer in the first frame with a two-run job and added an insurance RBI double in the ninth to secure the 7-5 victory. Since returning from the IL on August 15, Tatis has batted just .236 (13-for-55) as he learns the outfield position but has blasted five dingers. Overall, El Nio is slashing a marvelous .284/.364/.643 with 24 steals and 167 runs-plus-RBI to complement the long balls. The Padres and fantasy managers will need the elite talent to continue his hot hitting down the stretch.

Thu Aug 2612:46Fernando Tatis Jr.'s Late Heroics Not Enough For Sliding Friars
San Diego Padres shortstop/outfielder Fernando Tatis Jr. went 1-for-7 with four strikeouts but crushed a game-tying extra-inning home run in Wednesday's 16-inning loss to the Los Angeles Dodgers. El Nio's two-run bomb in the 15th frame sent the contest into one more set before the Friars finally faltered 5-3. Despite the late heroics, Tatis is just 8-for-37 (.216 average) since returning from the IL on August 15 but does have four long balls. The 22-year-old star remains one of fantasy's most valuable players, slashing .284/.366/.648 with 35 homers, 24 steals and 163 runs-plus-RBI in 404 plate appearances. If he can manage his chronic shoulder issue, Tatis should continue leading fantasy squads into the final run.

San Diego Padres shortstop/outfielder Fernando Tatis Jr. went 0-for-3 Tuesday against the Los Angeles Dodgers but drew a walk and stole his 24th base. Since his four-hit outburst upon returning from the injured list on August 15, El Nio is just 3-for-25 (.120 average) with a homer in his past seven contests. Despite multiple IL stints with a chronic left shoulder issue, Tatis leads the National League in home runs (34) and OPS (1.020). Over 397 plate appearances, the 22-year-old star is slashing .287/.370/.649 with 160 runs-plus-RBI to supplement the power and speed. Now with outfield eligibility, he continues holding peak fantasy value as long as he's healthy.

Fri Aug 2019:34Fernando Tatis Jr. Making Fifth Outfield Start Friday
San Diego Padres shortstop Fernando Tatis Jr. will gain outfield eligibility in Yahoo leagues after Friday's game, as he is making his fifth start of the season in the outfield Friday night against the Phillies. Tatis will still require five more games played in the outfield before gaining eligibility in ESPN leagues. Over 91 games this season, Tatis is slashing .295/.374/.669 with 34 homers, 23 steals, 75 RBI and 83 runs scored. This positional flexibility will provide a boost to the already incredibly high value that Tatis has to offer. He'll start in center field tonight and is batting second in the order against Phillies starter Matt Moore.

Wed Aug 1801:58Fernando Tatis Jr. Refuses To Stop Hitting Home Runs
San Diego Padres shortstop/outfielder Fernando Tatis Jr. has faced plenty of adversity this season, but he continues to knock the cover off the ball regardless. Tatis Jr. went 1-for-4 with his 34th home run of the year Tuesday against the Colorado Rockies, a solo shot off starting pitcher German Marquez. Tatis Jr. batted second and played right field in this contest, and he seems poised to gain outfield eligibility later this week. With a 1.523 OPS and four homers over his last seven games, the only thing that can slow Tatis Jr. down is injury.

Mon Aug 1601:43Fernando Tatis Jr. Goes Wild In Return From IL
San Diego Padres shortstop Fernando Tatis Jr. had himself a field day in his first game back from the injured list Sunday, going 4-for-5 with two home runs, a double, four RBI, and three runs scored. He batted leadoff and started in right field for the first time in his career. Tatis Jr. now has 33 home runs for the year, and the MVP award appears to be his to lose. Fantasy managers have now dodged multiple injury bullets with the young superstar, and the only drawback to rostering him at this point is the possibility of more missed time.

Sun Aug 1514:29Fernando Tatis Jr. Back Sunday, Playing Right Field
San Diego Padres shortstop Fernando Tatis Jr. (shoulder) will be activated on Sunday and in the starting lineup, playing right field. He has been on the injured list since July 31. The move to the outfield is expected to keep Tatis Jr. healthy for the remainder of the year and keep Adam Frazier and Jake Cronenworth in the starting lineup. He has been an MVP-caliber player all season, slashing .290/.373/.647 with 31 HRs, 70 RBI, 79 runs, and 23 SBs. It's good news for fantasy managers, as he should continue being the impact player he was prior to the injury.

Wed Aug 1123:07Fernando Tatis Jr. Could Get Reps In Right Field
The San Diego Padres are considering trialing shortstop Fernando Tatis Jr. (shoulder) in right field. Out since July 30 after partially dislocating his left shoulder for the fourth time, the Friars believe a positional move could preserve their star 22-year-old. Expected to return from the IL imminently, Tatis has looked natural practicing in the outfield but has also taken reps at short. The MVP candidate is slashing .292/.373/.651 with 31 homers, 23 steals and 148 runs-plus-RBI in 362 plate appearances and may return to game action this weekend against the Arizona Diamondbacks. Already peaking as a top fantasy performer, any additional versatility would only raise his ceiling further. The loser in this scenario is outfielder Wil Myers, who'd be reduced to a part-time role.

Wed Aug 1118:36Fernando Tatis Jr. Expected To Rejoin Team Over The Weekend
San Diego Padres shortstop Fernando Tatis Jr. (shoulder) is expected to be activated from the injured list over the weekend while the team is visiting the Arizona Diamondbacks, Kevin Acee of the San Diego Union-Tribune reported Wednesday. Tatis Jr. has been sidelined since July 31 with left shoulder inflammation and has slowly been ramping up activities over the last week. Fantasy managers should keep an eye out for the 22-year-old's return to the meat of San Diego's lineup, especially since he was slashing .316/.381/737 with two home runs, four RBI, and three runs scored on six hits in the seven games he played in prior to injury.

San Diego Padres shortstop Fernando Tatis Jr. (shoulder) hit on the field on Monday for the first time since being placed on the 10-day injured list, Kevin Acee of the San Diego Union-Tribune reported. Tatis Jr. has been sidelined since July 31 after he made an awkward slide into third base that resulted in left shoulder inflammation. Fantasy managers should be ecstatic the 22-year-old slugger is recovering so smoothly and should be on the lookout for when he and his .737 slugging percentage return to San Diego's lineup.

Fri Aug 618:46Fernando Tatis Jr. Hitting In Batting Cage, Nearing Return
San Diego Padres shortstop Fernando Tatis Jr. (shoulder) has been hitting in the batting cage and could start hitting on the field soon, manager Jayce Tingler told the press on Friday. The 22-year-old slugger was placed on the 10-day injured list on July 31 with left shoulder inflammation after he made an awkward slide into third base. Fantasy managers are no doubt happy to hear Tatis Jr. is improving nicely since that left shoulder has taken him out of the lineup twice this season. In his last seven games prior to injury, he hit a combined .316/.381/.737 with two home runs and four RBI on six hits.

Sat Jul 3119:05Fernando Tatis Jr. Placed On IL Saturday
San Diego Padres shortstop Fernando Tatis Jr. (shoulder) was placed on the 10-day injured list on Saturday with left shoulder inflammation, the team announced on Twitter. Tatis exited Friday's game after suffering his second shoulder subluxation of the year while running on the base paths. It's the same shoulder that he injured earlier this year, which raised concerns that Tatis could see his season come to a premature close as a result of this issue. For now it appears that the team thinks he'll be able to return to action at some point, but there's no timetable for how long he'll be out. While Tatis is sidelined, expect Jake Cronenworth and Ha-Seong Kim to see regular time at shortstop, as Cronenworth will get the start there on Saturday and is batting second against the Rockies.

Sat Jul 3110:14Fernando Tatis Jr. Diagnosed With Shoulder Subluxation
San Diego Padres shortstop Fernando Tatis Jr. (shoulder) was diagnosed with left shoulder subluxation after he exited Friday's loss to the Rockies. The 22-year-old left during the first inning of Friday's game after re-aggravating a shoulder injury which caused him to spend 10 days on the injured list earlier in the season. "It's another subluxation for Tatis," said manager Jayce Tingler. The Padres manager compared Tatis' injury to the same injury he sustained in April. Tatis is considered day-to-day and will undergo additional tests on Saturday to determine the severity of the injury. Tatis has been excellent in 2021, slashing .288/.371/.646 with 31 homers, 70 RBI, 79 runs scored, and 23 stolen bases over 88 games in 2021. Stay tuned.

Sat Jul 3102:55Joey Votto homers for 7th straight game, 1 shy of MLB record
NEW YORK (AP) — Joey Votto homered for the seventh straight game, one shy of a major league record, and the Cincinnati Reds beat the New York Mets 6-2 on Friday night. Jonathan India went deep twice for the Reds, including a leadoff shot that came on Carlos Carrasco’s first pitch with the Mets. Acquired from Cleveland in January, the veteran right-hander finally made his New York debut after recovering from a hamstring injury. It was an up-and-down day for the Mets, who made a big deal to get Javier Báez from the Chicago Cubs before baseball’s trade deadline — and then revealed injured ace Jacob deGrom will be shut down for two more weeks because of inflammation in his pitching elbow, making it unlikely he’ll rejoin the NL East leaders before September. Báez was acquired from the Cubs along with right-hander Trevor Williams for outfield prospect Pete Crow-Armstrong, the Mets’ first-round pick in the 2020 amateur draft. Báez is expected to join the Mets on Saturday and ... [More]

San Diego Padres shortstop Fernando Tatis Jr. left Friday's game against the Colorado Rockies after the first inning, according to AJ Cassavell of MLB.com. Tatis was tagged on the basepaths and it appeared he had hurt his shoulder during the play. The severity of the injury isn't known.

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (AP) — Luis Patiño outpitched Gerrit Cole, Brett Phillips hit a grand slam during a 10-run sixth inning, and the Tampa Bay Rays avoided a three-game sweep by routing the New York Yankees 14-0 on Thursday. Patiño (2-2) allowed three hits in six innings. The 21-year-old right-hander, acquired in the trade that sent Blake Snell to San Diego last December, struck out eight and walked two. Cole (10-6) gave up a season-high eight runs — seven earned — on six hits over 5 1/3 innings and saw his ERA jump from 2.74 to 3.11. He had 10 strikeouts and two walks. Austin Meadows homered twice and drove in five runs for the Rays. Louis Head and Ryan Sherriff completed a four-hitter. All nine batters in the Rays’ lineup reached base in the sixth. It was the biggest scoring inning by Tampa Bay since a 10-run fifth at Miami on June 5, 2008.

San Diego Padres shortstop Fernando Tatis Jr. went 2-for-3 with a walk, double, two runs scored and two-run homer Tuesday against the Oakland Athletics. El Nio's highlight of the night came in the third frame on a mammoth 440-foot blast off A's starter James Kaprielian, his 31st of the season.
