Tatis was re-assigned to minor-league camp on Tuesday.
He was never going to break camp on the big-league roster, but the fact that he slashed .281/.343/.469 with one home run and three steals (on three attempts) in 32 spring at-bats as a 19-year-old certainly turned some heads. He also struck out 12 times in that span, so it wasn't a flawless audition. It's unclear if he will open the year at High-A or Double-A, but it is clear that he's on track to debut in the majors in late 2018 or early 2019.
Tatis is in the lineup for Monday's game against the Royals.
Tatis has been out since Friday with an illness. The highly-touted prospect has been having an excellent spring, though he won't be breaking camp with the Padres and is unlikely to even make his debut this season, as he's just 19 years old and has only played 14 games at the Double-A level.
Tatis was taken out of Friday's lineup due to an illness.
Tatis will likely remain out of Saturday's game as well while he recovers from a fever. Expect to see the 19-year-old prospect back on the field against the Giants on Sunday.
Tatis was scratched from Friday's spring game against the White Sox.
At this point there has been no reason given as to why Tatis was replaced by Luis Urias in Friday's starting nine. The top prospect -- who has been on a tear throughout the Cactus League -- was originally slated to DH against the White Sox. Expect an update in the coming hours if Tatis is dealing with some sort of injury.
Tatis is hitting .381/.458/.667 with one home run, three steals (on three attempts) and a 7:3 K:BB in 21 at-bats this spring.
He isn't going to break camp with the big-league club, and likely won't even make his big-league debut this season, but Tatis is still the talk of Padres camp. It's a tiny sample size, but the uber-athletic 6-foot-3 athletic shortstop is undoubtedly upping his name value and dynasty-league appeal with this successful start to spring training. Fellow prospects Franchy Cordero and Luis Urias are also having great springs thus far, so the future in San Diego appears to be incredibly bright. Look for Tatis to open the year at High-A or Double-A. He is unlikely to reach the majors this year unless the big-league club is somehow contending around the All-Star break, in which case, all bets are off.
