In today's mail... the new Bill James Handbook, bigger and better than ever.

Probably the biggest thing making it bigger: five-year stats for the top 25 prospects in baseball, as well as for the top 100 prospects at the beginning of the season who made their MLB debuts.

Thus four lines of stats for Tatis, starting in two Rookie leagues in 2016 (we missed those here). 

Three lines of minor league stats (two teams each year), in addition to his NL stats, for Juan Soto.

  • Fernando Tatis Jr, SS, Padres. A strong night for the No. 2 prospect in baseball was cut short when he exited Thursday night's game with a thumb injury two innings after sliding into second base on a steal attempt. Tatis Jr. homered in the first inning -- his 16th of the year. The Padres expect to know more about Tatis' status Friday, per the San Diego Tribune.

Tatis was one of the few who played the whole game.  He started at SS and moved to 3B.  He looked solid at SS.  He played very deep, 2-3 steps onto the OF grass for RH batters.  I guess he has the arm to make the throw from there.  Tatis doesn't wrap the bat like his father, but he holds his hands pretty high.  He has a very athletic body.  He turned a double play or two and looked smooth in the field.

He wasn't one of the stars of the game on the offensive side.  I don't have my scorecard with me, but will review tonight.

Th big gainer in Baseball America's Midseason 100 Prospects Update.

No. 4 (Last: 8)


Hit: 60 | Power: 60 | Speed: 50 | Fielding: 55 | Arm: 60
Scouting Report: Early in 2017, Tatis would come to the plate without a plan and get caught swinging over breaking balls on the outer half, but he quickly adjusted and became a precocious mix of power and patience. He tracks pitches well and consistently drives hittable offerings with excellent extension and leverage through his swing. Balls jump off his bat from gap to gap, and he shows plus power with towering pull-side home runs. Tatis cut his strikeout rate each successive month at Fort Wayne, and at the time he was promoted, he led the Midwest League in walks. He enhances his offensive game with his basestealing ability. He is an average runner whose speed plays up on the bases with his instincts, reads and jumps. At shortstop, Tatis frequently makes highlight-reel plays and shows off a plus, accurate arm, but on a play-to-play basis, evaluators see fringy range and many project a move to third base if he grows bigger. Tatis will stay at shortstop for now and has the actions to stick there if he maintains his body. In addition to his physical talents, Tatis is a natural leader. He is nearly bilingual and an effective communicator with impressive self-awareness for his age.

 Fernando Tatis Jr., Padres, SS. Tatis' second two home run night of the year should ensure that he faces no more questions about his slow start. He's hitting .333/.414/.719 this month.

 Fernando Tatis Jr., SS, Padres. Tatis has been off to a slow start just like he endured last year, but he has shown signs of pulling out of it. Tatis hit a pair of doubles and a home run yesterday.
