Padres' Fernando Tatis: Back in lineup
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tatis (illness) is in the starting lineup for Monday's Cactus League game against the Dodgers, playing shortstop and leading off.

Tatis was dealing with the flu last week, but he'll be able to return to game action after participating in a full workout Sunday. While the Padres could attempt to ease him back into action as a precautionary measure, the issue is unlikely to affect his status for Opening Day.

Padres' Fernando Tatis: Could return Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tatis (illness) participated in light drills Friday and could return to game action Monday, AJ Cassavell of MLB.com reports.

Tatis has been battling the flu since the start of the week but has improved enough to resume baseball activities. Per Cassavell, the Padres are hopeful Tatis will be able to return to a full workout Sunday, which would put him in line to play in Monday's Cactus League contest.

Padres' Fernando Tatis: Needs more time to recover from flu
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tatis (illness) returned to the Padres' spring-training complex Thursday, but he's expected to need a few more days to regain strength before re-entering the Cactus League lineup, Kevin Acee of The San Diego Union-Tribune reports.

Tatis lost some weight while battling the flu for the past few days, so the Padres will give him some time to ease back into action. Since Opening Day is still three weeks away, Tatis will have plenty of time to build up stamina and get himself where he needs to be physically. After a brilliant rookie campaign in which he hit .317 with 22 home runs and 16 steals in just 84 games, Tatis doesn't look out of place as a second- or third-round pick in fantasy drafts.

Padres' Fernando Tatis: Out with flu
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tatis has been out the last four days with the flu, but he could return to action on Thursday, Kevin Acee of The San Diego Union-Tribune reports.

Tatis may be limited to just returning to baseball activities at the Padres' spring training complex, as opposed to game action, in the immediate aftermath of the illness.

Padres' Fernando Tatis: Out with illness
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tatis isn't starting Sunday's Cactus League game against the Giants due to an illness, Kevin Acee of The San Diego Union-Tribune reports.

Tatis apparently caught the bug that's making its way through the Padres' clubhouse, so he may take a couple days off as a result. The ailment is unlikely to impact the 21-year-old's availability for Opening Day.

Padres' Fernando Tatis Jr.: Won't play OF
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Despite the fact Tatis was seen working in right field and said he would be open to playing the outfield, general manager A.J. Preller said unequivocally that Tatis will not play the outfield this spring, Kevin Acee of The San Diego Union-Tribune reports.

On the surface, it would be bizarre for Tatis to shift away from playing shortstop, but it's also possible he could be the team's best defensive center fielder. The Padres are already overflowing with infield depth, so that would be the logic behind a move like that in the future. For now, however, he will reprise his role as the team's everyday shortstop.

Padres' Fernando Tatis Jr.: Open to playing outfield
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tatis said Wednesday that he was open to playing outfield this season, Kevin Acee of The San Diego Union-Tribune reports.

Part of what made Tatis' rookie campaign so impressive is that his .317/.379/.590 slash line came as a shortstop, but those numbers are elite enough that they would very easily play anywhere. Tatis earns high marks for his athleticism, but that didn't translate to good defense in his rookie season, as Statcast's Outs Above Average pegged him at minus-13 outs, fourth worst among all infielders. Given his age and athletic reputation, he could absolutely improve at the position with experience, but an eventual move to the outfield can't be ruled out. It's not clear that such a shift makes sense this season, however, as the Padres have a logjam in the outfield already.

Padres' Fernando Tatis Jr.: Moves to 60-day IL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tatis (back) was placed on the 60-day injured list Tuesday.

Tatis is expected to miss the remainder of the season with a back injury, so the Padres will clear a spot on the 40-man roster by moving him to the 60-day IL. Seth Mejias-Brean will be added in a corresponding move.

Padres' Fernando Tatis Jr.: Likely done for season
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tatis (back) will likely miss the rest of the season, Kevin Acee of The San Diego Union-Tribune reports.

It appears as though Tatis' back spasms were more severe than initially feared, as the injury is now expected to sideline him for the rest of the year. The 20-year-old rookie burst onto the scene in 2019, slashing .317/.379/.590 with 22 home runs and 53 RBI in 84 games. Manny Machado and Luis Urias will likely split time at shortstop in Tatis' absence, with Ty France seeing more playing time at third base.

Padres' Fernando Tatis Jr.: Moving to injured list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tatis will be placed on the 10-day injured list Friday with a lower-back strain, Kevin Acee of The San Diego Union-Tribune reports.

Tatis was removed from Tuesday's game with lower-back spasms and was reported as likely IL-bound after sitting out Wednesday's contest. The injury isn't believed to be a serious issue, and the Padres hope their rookie shortstop will be able to return when first eligible Aug. 24 or shortly thereafter. Luis Urias figures to take over at shortstop in the meantime, with Greg Garcia and Ty France covering the keystone.

Padres' Fernando Tatis Jr.: Likely heading to injured list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tatis (back) is likely to be placed on the 10-day injured list Thursday, AJ Cassavell of MLB.com reports.

Tatis was removed from Tuesday's contest with lower-back spasms and was subsequently held out of the lineup Wednesday, though he indicated that he was looking to return to the starting nine Friday. The 20-year-old didn't travel with the team to Philadelphia and will undergo further testing Thursday. The Friars may take the cautious approach with their young shortstop and hope he's ready to be activated after spending the 10-day minimum on the shelf. Luis Urias figures to shift over to shortstop from the keystone while Tatis is sidelined.

Padres' Fernando Tatis Jr.: Hopes to rejoin lineup Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tatis (back) won't play in Wednesday's game against the Rays but hopes to rejoin the lineup for the start of the Padres' weekend series in Philadelphia, AJ Cassavell of MLB.com reports.

Tatis went 2-for-4 with a pair of strikeouts before exiting Tuesday's 7-5 loss after apparently tweaking his lower back during an at-bat late in the contest. With the Padres facing a quick turnaround for Wednesday's series finale and then having an off day, it makes sense for the team to take a conservative approach with its star rookie. If Tatis' back soreness fails to subside by the time Friday arrives, the Padres could more realistically consider placing him on the injured list, but he'll be viewed as day-to-day for the time being.

Padres' Fernando Tatis Jr.: Out with back spasms
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tatis was removed from Tuesday's game against Tampa Bay with lower-back spasms, AJ Cassavell of MLB.com reports.

Tatis exited the contest following a sixth-inning strikeout; during the at-bats, he was visited by the athletic trainer after appearing to tweak his back. He could be held out of the lineup Wednesday with a scheduled off day to follow Thursday.

Padres' Fernando Tatis Jr.: Exits with apparent injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tatis was removed from Tuesday's game against the Rays with an apparent injury, AJ Cassavell of MLB.com reports.

Tatis was visited by the athletic trainer after he appeared to tweak something during his sixth-inning at-bat, and he didn't retake the field for the following frame. The 20-year-old appeared to be stretching out part of his midsection, but we'll have to await specifics from the team.

Padres' Fernando Tatis Jr.: Two steals, two RBI in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tatis went 1-for-3 with a two-run double, two stolen bases and a pair of walks in Friday's 7-1 win over the Rockies.

The rookie phenom opened the scoring with a third-inning double off Rockies starter Kyle Freeland, plating Manuel Margot and Luis Urias. Tatis then got aboard with a walk in the seventh inning and stole both second and third base. The shortstop has a 13-game hitting streak going, in which he's gone 18-for-55 with six homers, 12 RBI and the two steals. He's up to 16 steals and 53 RBI to go with 22 homers and 60 runs scored in 80 games overall this year.

Padres' Fernando Tatis Jr.: Sets slew of records in victory
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tatis went 2-for-5 with a solo home run, two RBI and two runs scored in a win over Colorado on Thursday.

The rookie sensation entered the record books when he led off the game with a solo blast, becoming the youngest player in major-league history to accomplish the feat in consecutive games. With his 22nd overall home run, Tatis also established the record for a shortstop before turning 21 years old. For good measure, he took over sole possession of the Padres' single-season leadoff home run record with his sixth of the year. Tatis also dazzled on defense, barehanding a flip from Luis Urias to turn an inning-ending double play in the fourth inning. In his first major-league season, Tatis has already established himself as one of the most exciting and fearsome players in the game as evidenced by his .326/.387/.607 slash line, 22 homers, 51 RBI and 14 steals in only 349 plate appearances.

Padres' Fernando Tatis Jr.: Hammers 20th homer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tatis went 1-for-4 with a two-run homer and a walk in a victory over Seattle on Tuesday.

The 20-year-old rookie sensation destroyed a Wade LeBlanc changeup in the fifth inning, launching it 420 feet to left field to culminate a five-run frame for San Diego. The homer extended Tatis' hitting streak to 10 games and upped his long ball count to 20 on the season. His slash line now sits at an eye-popping .322/.383/.592 with 48 RBI and 14 steals over 339 plate appearances.

Padres' Fernando Tatis Jr.: Bombs 19th homer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tatis went 1-for-5 with a solo home run in Tuesday's 8-5 loss to the Orioles.

Tatis drove the fourth pitch of the game from Tom Eshelman 435 feet over the wall in center field for his 19th homer of the year. The 20-year-old has been hot since the All-Star break, going 25-for-75 with five home runs in 17 games. Tatis is now slashing .329/.387/.604 with 14 stolen bases in 283 at-bats this year.

Padres' Fernando Tatis Jr.: Slugs 17th homer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tatis went 3-for-4 with a two-run home run in Saturday's 5-1 win over the Giants.

He drove a hanging slider from Shaun Anderson to right-center field in the fifth inning for his 17th homer of the year. Tatis has been raking since the All-Star break, slashing .339/.373/.516 in 14 games with three home runs and 10 RBI, but the rookie's plate discipline has taken a step backward during that stretch, and his 4:23 BB:K suggests there could be some bumps in the road ahead despite his success to date.

Padres' Fernando Tatis Jr.: Third straight multi-hit effort
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tatis went 3-for-5 with a double and RBI in Wednesday's 7-2 win over the Mets.

Tatis struck out two more times and sports a 32.5 percent strikeout rate for July, but fortunately for his fantasy managers, the lack of consistent contact hasn't hindered his productivity. He's now put together three multi-hit performances in a row and sports a .927 OPS to go with 13 RBI, 10 runs, five home runs and two steals in 18 games on the month. Tatis will be back atop the lineup Thursday as the Padres and Mets wrap up their series with an afternoon contest.
