Fernando Tatis Jr. did not participate in this year’s home run derby, but from now until then, he is trying to play at least one round in the game.
Tatis played well in the first three games for the Padres against the Diamondbacks on Friday. He did it in the first four innings, which means he has a lot of time to tie or break the MLB home run record in a game. With a score of 4, this feat has been completed 18 times, the most recent being completed by JD Martinez in 2017.
He played for the fourth time, and he lined up a single jump one-way shortstop in the seventh inning. His fifth and final game, he was eliminated in the eighth game. San Diego won the game 11-5.
Three homers have given the 22-year-old Tatis 25 points this season and tied him with the Blue Jays’ Vladimir Guerrero in the majors. When the No. 3 ball flew over the midfield wall, he enjoyed it.
Tatis said before Friday’s game that he will pass the ball in this year’s Denver derby to protect his left shoulder. The left shoulder suddenly appeared during a swing in April, this month when he dived for an earth. Adjustment. In the display event on July 12, only Shohei Ohtani and Pete Alonso were confirmed participants. Guerrero will not participate either.
But rest assured, Tatis hopes to be involved in his career.
“I’m 22 years old. I think I have more opportunities to participate in the home run derby,” He told reporters that according to MLB.com“When I go there, I want to put on a great performance.”
