San Diego Padres Fernando Tatis Jr. (24) returned to the team after 18 months. He starts at right field, batting first, and making his major league comeback.
Reporter Bob Nightingale, a major league source, announced the starting lineup for San Diego on his personal SNS on the 21st (Korean time). On this day, San Diego will play an away game against the Arizona Diamondbacks at Chase Field in Phoenix, Arizona, USA.
What stands out is Tatis Jr., the first hitter and right fielder. Tatis Jr. suffered a fractured left wrist in a motorcycle accident ahead of last year’s opening game and was unable to play. During his rehabilitation period, he was suspended for a total of 80 games for taking Colosteball, which aids in muscle development. It will be about 18 months after October 4, 2021, to play in the major leagues.
During his rehabilitation period, his performance in the minor leagues, Triple-A, was good. He had a .515 batting average (17-for-33), 7 home runs, 15 RBIs, and an OPS of 1.802 in eight games. Among them, his slugging percentage was 1.212, boasting a good sense of hitting.
His appearance in right field is also notable. San Diego rediscovered the value of infielder Kim Ha-seong last year, and signed shortstop Xander Bogarts as a free agent ahead of this season. Tatis Jr., who lost his place in the infield, plays with an outfield glove.
Recently, the San Diego lineup has scored only two runs in four games. A situation that requires a change of atmosphere. Attention is focusing on whether Tatis Jr. will be able to revitalize the team’s stagnant team attack.토토사이트
