Here’s why you might not see Fernando Tatis Jr. in…


Fernando Tatis Jr. of the San Diego Padres has said clearly what position he intends to play in the future.

Fernando Tatis Jr, the San Diego Padres’ rising star, returned to the squad in the outfield after an IL stay for his persistently damaged left shoulder.

The natural shortstop isn’t used to playing at that position. He has split games between the outfield and shortstop since his return, with a few more games in the outfield. The club made the decision on purpose in order to maximize their rotation while also safeguarding Tatis Jr.’s injured shoulder.

With the Padres’ season winding down and them out of playoff contention, Tatis Jr. sent out a severe message about where he’ll be lining up next season.

Tatis said he plans to be the Padres’ starting shortstop next year. “(A.J. Preller) signed a shortstop, and he’s gonna have a shortstop. That’s the plan so far, and I’m not planning on moving for a very long time from there.”

The 22-year-old superstar has made it obvious to the media, fans, and, most importantly, his baseball club that he will play shortstop next season.

Fernando Tatis Jr. will make decision about injured shoulder

The declaration was prompted by discussions concerning Tatis Jr.’s shoulder and whether or not he believes he requires surgery. Tatis Jr. has stated that he prefers to avoid surgery, but that he would consult with the club and medical experts to determine the best course of action.

Fernando Tatis Jr. said he needs to sit down with the Padres and doctors, but he again indicated his preference is to avoid shoulder surgery. “We’ll see. I feel like I’m in a great spot, my shoulder’s in a great spot and I’m very secure in where I’m at right now.”

Tatis Jr’s availability is crucial as one of baseball’s brightest lights. He is the face of baseball and the focus of the Padres’ efforts to be a contending team. The general public simply wants to see him on the field healthy, but if Tatis Jr. has his way, he’ll be healthy and playing shortstop.
