Padres SS star Fernando Tatis Jr. takes on BP live on Monday
The San Diego Padres had arguably been involved in the most trade rumors among the 30 MLB teams before Tuesday’s deadline. In non-trade news, they also made headlines when they officially signed All-Star starting pitcher Joe Musgrove to a five-year, $100 million contract extension on Monday.
The Brotherhood’s apparent interest in two-time All-Stars Juan Soto and Shohei Ohtani doesn’t even include Monday afternoon announced a blockbuster deal to land closer to Milwaukee Brewers star Josh Hader.
One in-house addition San Diego could see back on the court for the first time this season in the near future is Fernando Tatis Jr. 2021 All-Star. The scathing shortstop takes a big step Monday in his eventual return from the off-season wrist surgery.
