Fernando Tatis - #17
35 years old
5'11" 185 pounds
11th major league season
Bats R/Throws R
Good: Um, Omar Minaya likes him. I'll search for something else that's good. He's built churches in the Dominican Republic. Oh, you want to know what he does well on the baseball field. Ok, he supposedly can play all infield positions and the corner outfield positions. He has a .364 OBP and .459 slugging % vs lefties last year. Has had some big HRs over the past few years, and can hit mistakes for home runs.
Bad: Can't play any position above average/well. .285/.321/.425 slash stats vs Righties.
Role: Shouldn't be on the major league roster, but he signed a guaranteed contract. Will be a utility player off the bench.
Projections: 300 at bats (which is 300 too many), 7 HR, .265/.330/.420
As a reference, the average MLB 1st baseman slash stats last year were: .276/.362/.483
