  • Fernando Tatis Jr. Reaches Base Four Times Tuesday

    San Diego Padres shortstop Fernando Tatis Jr. (wrist) had a productive day at the plate in his third rehab game Tuesday with Double-A San Antonio. Tatis Jr. went 2-for-2 with a double, a triple, and two walks. This was a good sign for the 23-year-old, as he had gone hitless in his first two rehab games. Tatis Jr. has yet to play in the big leagues this season because he fractured his left wrist in a motorcycle accident in the offseason. It is unclear when fantasy managers can expect to see the superstar back in a Padres uniform, but it seems like it may not be too far off given how his rehab games have gone.

  • Fernando Tatis Jr. Goes Hitless In Second Rehab Game

    San Diego Padres shortstop Fernando Tatis Jr. (wrist) went 0-for-3 while playing shortstop and batting leadoff for Double-A San Antonio on Sunday in his second minor league rehab game.

Tatis has gone hitless in his first two rehab games on the farm, but the Padres think there's a realistic chance that he'll return in mid-August to make his 2022 season debut. The 23-year-old superstar fractured his left wrist in a motorcycle accident in the offseason and hasn't played yet this year. When he returns, he can be a difference-maker for fantasy managers down the stretch.

  • Fernando Tatis Jr. Goes Hitless In First Rehab Game

    San Diego Padres shortstop Fernando Tatis Jr. (wrist) kicked off his minor league rehab assignment on Saturday with Double-A San Antonio by going 0-for-2 with two walks and a strikeout as the designated hitter and leadoff batter. Tatis is finally playing in live games for the first time since having surgery to fix a broken wrist in March, but the Padres won't rush him back to the major league lineup until he's ready. Barring a setback on his rehab assignment, the 23-year-old Dominican should return around mid-August, and he has the potential to be a difference-maker for fantasy managers the rest of the way. Tatis hit .282/.364/.611 with a .975 OPS, a league-leading 42 home runs, 97 RBI, 99 runs scored and 25 stolen bases in 130 games last year.

  • Fernando Tatis Jr. To Begin Rehab Assignment Over Weekend

    San Diego Padres shortstop Fernando Tatis Jr. (wrist) is expected to begin a rehab assignment at Double-A San Antonio either Saturday or Sunday. Tatis is slated to see time at shortstop, center field, and designated hitter during the rehab stint. The star infielder is nearing a return to the Padres after missing the entire season thus far while recovering from surgery in March to repair a broken bone in his wrist. The Padres have yet to indicate how quickly he will be able to join the big leagues but it should be in the next week or two. Tatis joining an already loaded San Diego lineup will make the Padres' offense all the more formidable over the final two months of the regular season.

  • Fernando Tatis Jr. Could Begin Rehab Assignment This Weekend

    If all goes according to plan, San Diego Padres shortstop Fernando Tatis Jr. (wrist) will begin a minor league rehab assignment this weekend. He is scheduled to take live batting practice on Monday, and the Padres are still taking it day by day with him. The 23-year-old superstar is trying to return from a surgically repaired left wrist after fracturing it in a motorcycle accident in the offseason. The Friars aren't going to rush him back, meaning he could have a somewhat lengthy rehab assignment before making his 2022 season debut around the middle of August. Tatis has the ability to be a difference-maker for fantasy managers down the stretch after he hit .282/.364/.611 with a .975 OPS, a league-leading 42 home runs, 97 RBI, 99 runs scored and 25 stolen bases in just 130 games in 2021.
