Fernando Tatis Jr. Leaves Early

SCOUT ANALYST JOHN BOLLMAN'S TAKE

Fernando Tatis Jr. left yesterday’s game early with lower back spasms. He will be out for today’s game but the Padres are hoping to have him back for their game Friday. He is not expected to go on the IL but we will know more about the injury this weekend.

REST OF SEASON OUTLOOK AND POSITION RANK

Expect Fernando Tatis Jr. to be a reliable fantasy starter the rest of the season. His 95.75 projected fantasy points puts him at #16 behind Corey Seager and ahead of Aledmys Diaz. He is expected to be out through 8/23 which impacts his rest of season ranking. He has averaged 3.55 fantasy points in his past 84 games, which is more than our projected per game average. He is projected to average 3.04 fantasy points. His rank based on avg proj (#12) is better than his rank based on total fantasy points. He is overrated if you compare his ownership based rank with his projection rank. At 99%, he is the #7 most highly owned shortstop. Fernando Tatis Jr. is expected to come up short of this season-to-date's #12 fantasy position rank.
