Fernando Tatis Jr., arguably best prospect in the minors, will miss rest of season due to thumb injury
The Padres prospect had hit .286 with 16 home runs and 16 stolen bases in Double-A
Here's bad news for those who like good young players.
Tatis, 19, will finish the season having hit .286/.355/.507 with 16 home runs and 16 stolen bases in 88 games at Double-A San Antonio -- impressive marks given his youth and ability to play shortstop. Just last week ESPN.com's Keith Law ranked Tatis as the best prospect in baseball, noting he looks to be a "high-impact" player.
Although we won't see Tatis on a field again this season, expect him to make his big-league debut sometime sooner than later in 2019. He has the chance to be another special youngster.
