Tatis agreed to a 14-year, $340 million contract extension with the Padres on Wednesday, Robert Murray of FanSided.com reports.
The 22-year-old had yet to hit arbitration and was already under team control through the 2024 season, but the Friars opted to secure the services of their star shortstop for the next 14 years. Tatis has only 143 major-league games under his belt through two seasons, but he's been impressive since his promotion with a .301/.374/.582 slash line, 39 homers and 27 stolen bases in 629 plate appearances. According to Mark Feinsand of MLB.com, the deal includes a full no-trade clause, so Tatis will securely remain in San Diego as long as he wants to be there.
Tatis went 1-for-4 with a stolen base in Tuesday's loss to the Dodgers in Game 1 of the NLDS.
Tatis singled in the first inning off Walker Buehler and proceeded to swipe second base following a Manny Machado strikeout. The 21-year-old swiped 11 bags during the regular season while slashing .277/.366/.571. The Padres will look to get more production out of the young phenom as the series progresses.
Tatis went 3-for-5 with two homers and five RBI in Thursday's victory over the Cardinals in Game 2 of the NL Wild Card Series.
The Padres were down 6-2 in the bottom of the sixth inning, just 11 outs from the end of their season, when Tatis kicked off their comeback with a three-run shot off of Giovanny Gallegos. After a Manny Machado homer immediately after and a Wil Myers solo shot in the next inning gave the Padres the lead, Tatis added a pair of insurance runs in the bottom of the seventh, homering off of Daniel Ponce de Leon.
Tatis went 1-for-3 with a home run in Saturday's win over the Giants.
Tatis went through a 15-game homer drought earlier this month but seems to have turned things around, as the star shortstop has gone deep in each of San Diego's last two contests. Tatis enters the final day of the regular season sitting tied for the lead in homers in the NL with 17, alongside Atlanta outfielder Marcell Ozuna.
Tatis went 1-for-3 with a two-run homer in Game 2 of Friday's doubleheader versus San Francisco.
Tatis also collected a hit and an RBI in the matinee, notching a collective 2-for-7 effort over the course of the twin bill. The long ball in Game 2 was a 458-foot smash in the third inning that staked the Padres to a two-run lead. It was Tatis' first homer since Sept. 6; in 15 games over that span, he has struggled with an uncharacteristic .173/.267/.250 slash line.
Tatis is out of the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Angels.
With the Dodgers having clinched the NL West crown, manager Jayce Tingler has opted to give the MVP candidate a well-deserved rest in the series finale. Tatis' OPS has mostly dropped steadily over the past two weeks, but he's at least been productive over his last three starts, going 4-for-12 with a double, two walks, two stolen bases, an RBI and a run scored. Jake Cronenworth will spell Tatis at shortstop Wednesday.

Tatis gave the Padres a one-run lead with his RBI single in the 10th inning, but that lead didn't hold. He also recorded his 10th stolen base of the year after his eighth-inning walk. The shortstop has added 15 homers, 41 RBI, 47 runs scored and a .278/.367/.565 slash line through 54 games.
Tatis went 0-for-4 with a walk and three strikeouts Friday and is batting .065 (2-for-31) since Sept. 8.
Tatis was perhaps the favorite for NL MVP honors heading into September, but the prolonged slump has dropped his average to .275 and may be costing him a chance at the prestigious award. The hitless effort Friday marked the first time in his career that Tatis has gone without a hit in three straight games and was also his third three-strikeout game of the campaign. Despite the rough stretch, Tatis still owns a .935 OPS along with 15 home runs, 40 RBI and nine stolen bases in 2020.

A day after driving in seven runs with a pair of homers against the Rangers, Tatis settled for a pair of singles and a theft of third base in the win.

He has been one of the most productive bats in the National League this season, and at just 21 years of age should be one of baseball's most exciting young players for the foreseeable future.
Tatis is expected to start at designated hitter at least once during the Padres' current five-game road trip, Kevin Acee of The San Diego Union-Tribune reports.
Tatis has started at shortstop in each of the team's first 21 games, but manager Jayce Tingler suggested Thursday that he intends to give the budding superstar some time off his feet with San Diego set to play 17 straight games without an off-day. That maneuvering should come at some point in the next five days, with the Padres set for road series in Arizona and Texas. "After tonight, we're going to play the next five on (artificial) turf," Tingler stated. "We've had some things planned out to find a day to get guys off their feet and get them a DH day throughout this trip."
