Padres planning to work on Tatis extension

Nov. 13: Fernando Tatis Jr. has just 84 MLB games under his belt, but the Padres are already looking to work out a long-term contract with their franchise shortstop, two sources told Kevin Acee of The San Diego Union-Tribune.

Tatis finished third in the National League Rookie of the Year Award voting behind Mets first baseman Pete Alonso and Braves right-hander Mike Soroka despite being shut down with a back injury in mid-August. The 20-year-old hit .317/.379/.590 with 22 homers and 16 stolen bases over 372 plate appearances.

There is recent precedent for this type of early extension, as the Braves signed Ronald Acuña Jr. to an eight-year, $100 million contract after his 2018 rookie year. The deal could be worth up to $124 million if Atlanta exercises Acuna's team options in 2027 and '28.

Not a fan of locking Tatis into any kind of longer-term deal. He is a once-in-a-generation talent, but dude is injury prone. Let's not go Telesco and get stuck with an expensive all-star disabled list.
