BP Annual Player Comments

YearComment
2011 Fernando Tatis underwent shoulder surgery to repair his labrum in July, and the procedure may have ended his career. While he struggled in limited duty in 2010, he was a solid and inexpensive asset for the Mets for two seasons prior.
2010 After a remarkable comeback in 2008, injuries once again pressed Tatis into service. While the results weren't equal to what he did the year before, he still performed admirably while playing six positions, including two games at shortstop. (We didn't make that up, the 2009 Mets were really that sad.) In reality, his glove only works at first base, with third and left being "in a pinch" options, and his bat is big league-worthy, but only in a bench player's way, with most of the power coming against lefties. The Mets declined to offer arbitration, making him a free agent. He should bounce around for another few years putting up similar numbers.
2009 Forget Brad Lidge: Tatis was the real NL Comeback Player of the Year in 2008. Three years ago, after two full seasons away from the game, Tatis decided to return to raise money for the construction of a church in his Dominican hometown. By the time Tatis joined the Mets last year, the church had already been built, so he set about erecting something for himself: a new career. Tatis got back his late-'90s mojo, hitting for power against righties (.240 ISO) and OBP against lefties (.393), while also proving especially clutch, knocking in the game-winning or game-tying run(s) in the seventh inning or later five times. Tatis's season was ended early when he separated his shoulder diving for a ball on September 16, and the Mets missed him. He showed no lingering effects in the Dominican Winter League, and signed a one-year, $1.7 million contract to return.
2008 In case you haven't figured out that the 2007 roster of the Mets' Triple-A affiliate New Orleans Zephyrs was not only pathetic, but also kind of hilarious, we offer up Fernando Tatis as our next piece of evidence.
2007 Tatis`s return to the majors was a nice story, but like cotton candy, beyond the sweetness there was almost nothing of substance. The Orioles had an especially difficult time attracting minor league free agents in 2006--it seems nobody wants to go Ottawa--and that left them with reclamation projects such as Tatis, who had been out of pro ball completely for two years. He showed that he could still hit in the majors, but fielded like someone who hadn`t worn a glove in a decade.
2003 Tatis was unlike any third baseman in baseball in 1999. Just 24, he was a short, powerfully built dynamo, stuffed with power, patience, and athleticism. He then spent nearly half the next season on the shelf, drawing rips from Tony LaRussa for his poor work ethic and attitude. Still, the Expos looked to have a steal when they flipped Dustin Hermanson, his bloated contract and plummeting peripherals, along with Steve Kline to St. Louis for Tatis and Britt Reames. A team with no viable third baseman since Tim Wallach circa 1990 had to take the risk. Don’t hold your breath waiting for a happy ending. Two years of an often overweight, chronically injured Tatis has set his $6.75 million salary in 2003 up as a Lee Stevens-sized albatross, only worse. As of press time Tatis had made Omar Minaya’s quest to shave $15 million off the payroll while getting quality in return a Herculean task.
2002 Tatis rubbed Tony LaRussa the wrong way, causing him to be briefly reunited with Felipe Alou, who played with Tatis’s father in the Dominican Republic and is a close family friend. One injury after another (strained groin, partially torn labrum, back problems) marred his season before knee surgery scuttled it altogether. A healthy body and a focused attitude are all that Tatis needs to regain his 1999 form, but the unforgiving turf at Olympic Stadium and the turmoil surrounding the team don’t make either a sure thing.
2001 A very unfriendly torn groin put a real damper on Fernando Tatis's season. He's made tremendous strides offensively and, if healthy, will be one of the third-base stars of the ’00s along with Troy Glaus, Eric Chavez, Adrian Beltre, and the like. He's a young veteran coming off an injury; look out. I think he'll step forward and completely obliterate that projection with the Expos. The Vladimir forecasting system shows him at .292/.390/.575.
2000 We copped out last year by saying we didn't know what to expect, projecting him to hit .290 with 20 home runs, while giving that projection a less-than-ringing endorsement. Tatis ended up having the kind of year that should remind all of us that when a player explodes through the minors to reach the majors by 22, he might struggle with adjustments for a year or two, but the talent is going to emerge. What was amazing about Tatis is that there wasn't a phase of the game in which he didn't improve, and it’s especially interesting how quickly he went from being an impatient hitter to having a good walk rate. I think the improvement is real.
1999 Is he a prospect? To be honest, at this point I’m not really certain. What do you choose, the two months with the Cardinals, when he was new to the league, or his pathetic four months with the Rangers? With a gun to my head, I’d say he could live up to that projection, but that the Rangers won’t miss him that badly.
1998 He’s generally considered the best hitting prospect the Rangers have. Baseball America called him the best defensive third baseman in the Texas League, with the best arm. He steals in double digits every season. He showed resolve when he came back sooner than expected from injury in ‘96. Vlad projects an slugging percentage of .500 in the majors next year, when he’ll be 23 years old.
1997 Tatis, a slugging third baseman from San Pedro de Macoris, is the best hitting prospect in the organization. He missed the first two months of the season with a broken hamate bone that required surgery, but came back much sooner than expected. He can certainly hit, and he’s got room to get stronger. He hasn’t displayed either range or hands at third base.

DateQuestionAnswer
2009-10-02 14:00:00 (link to chat)In a world where Fernando Tatis gets another shot, shouldn't Richie Sexson find work somewhere?
(Matt from Malone, NY)
Tatis' 2008 was awfully good, and he can pretend to play all the corners. Sexson hasn't had that kind of year in forever and is a one-trick pony. Then again, he'd be about the sixth-best Royal. (Joe Sheehan)
2009-07-13 14:00:00 (link to chat)Is you opinion of francouer deal at all connected to you being bearish about him two years ago? Seems silly to start Omir Santos regularly and play Fernando Tatis fairly often AND acquire Jeff Francouer. Delmon Young could have been gotten without helping a division foe.
(jcalixte from new york)
Jeez, Delmon Young is one of the few guys worse than Francoeur. At least Francoeur plays a good right field. (Joe Sheehan)
2008-08-01 14:00:00 (link to chat)Any idea why the Mets weren't able to get any of the players they were looking at?
(TLivingston from Sonoma, CA)
I don't think the Mets were looking very hard, for better or worse. They seem convinced that Fernando Tatis is for real, that they'll get Ryan Church back at some point, that the rotation will magically hold together despite John Maine's cuff strain, Mike Pelfrey's innings limit, Pedro Martinez's assorted ailments, Oliver Perez's volatility and all that.

I'm not sure I want to bet against all of that by sitting on my hands, but as a team that can afford to take on salary, they have some mobility during the waiver trading period. (Jay Jaffe)
