The son of former Major League infielder Fernando Tatis Sr., the teenage infielder grew up around the game, and it shows. He developed with Giovani ¨Sabino¨ Ubiera in San Pedro de Macoris
Scouts like Tatis Jr.’s swing, his strong arm and his fluid actions on defense. He’s shown decent arm strength and raw power to his pull side. Tatis Jr.’s knack for barreling up balls and his repeatable swing have also impressed evaluators.
Some believe Tatis Jr. can play multiple positions and could end up at second or third base or even in the outfield. His big frame will allow him to build strength.
Scouts also like his makeup and how he handles himself on and off the field. He has a game-oriented mindset, and his makeup is off the charts.
The White Sox agree to terms with Fernando Tatis Jr for $700,000.00 and a $100,000 Scholarship.
