Shortstop with 442.9 billion won who lost the entire ‘Injury + Prohibited Substance’ season, live betting begins… Worried about returning to practice


San Diego Padres Fernando Tatis Jr. (24) is preparing to return.

MLB.com, the official major league media outlet, reported on the 21st (Korean time), “San Diego conducted additional live batting training at the auxiliary stadium, and Tatis Jr. played live batting for the first time this spring.”메이저놀이터

Tatis Jr. is a superstar shortstop with a batting average of .292 (303 hits in 1036 bats), 81 homers, 195 RBIs, and an OPS of .965 in 273 major league games. In 2021, ahead of the season, he signed an astronomical extension contract of 340 million dollars (approximately 442.9 billion won) for 14 years, and played an active role in 130 games with a batting average of 2.8 0.2 (135 hits in 478) with 42 home runs and 97 RBIs OPS .975. He finished third in National League MVP voting.

However, last season, he suffered a wrist fracture injury before the season and was suspended for 80 games after being caught with a banned substance, so he could not play a single game. San Diego brought in shortstop Xander Bogarts this winter for 280 million dollars (approximately 367.4 billion won) in 11 years, and Tatis Jr. is likely to play as an outfielder.

MLB.com said, “Tatis is swinging at 100% after surgery on his left wrist and shoulder. He hit twice against Nick Martinez, once striking out on a sharp shortstop grounder. He hit a fly ball against Robert Suarez,” explained Tatis Jr.’s condition.

Tatis Jr. still uses the two-handed Palosro he used later in the 2021 season in live betting. “It was just a more compact swing. I think I can become a better hitter this way,” he said, emphasizing that his current batting form was not affected by surgery.

Coach Bob Melvin said that Tatis Jr. will not start in the first exhibition game against Seattle on the 25th. Tatis Jr., who missed the entire 2022 season due to a fractured left wrist and suspension, will slowly pick up the pace this spring. Manager Melvin also mentioned that Tatis Jr.’s health will limit his base play.

“Especially in spring training, you have to balance,” said Melvin, hinting at Tatis’ future plans, saying, “We plan to make him comfortable considering he hasn’t played in a long time and has had two surgeries.”
