Fernando Tatis Jr. finishes in third place in National League MVP races

SAN DIEGO – San Diego Padres star Fernando Tatis Jr. has become number three in the poll Major League Baseball’s most valuable player price in the National League.

Philadelphia Phillies slugger Bryce Harper won his second NL MVP, beating Tatis and another young star, the Washington Nationals’ Juan Soto.

Generally considered one of the most dynamic players in the game, Tatis Jr. received two first-place votes and collected 244 points from the Baseball Writers’ Association of America, behind Harper’s 348 and Soto’s 274.

Despite lacking time for a nagging left shoulder injury on points throughout the season, the Tatis National League in 2021 led with 42 home runs along with a .282 batting average, 135 hits and 97 RBIs. He also stole 25 bases.

Last week, El NiƱo became the lone Padre to win a 2021 Silver Slugger. It made him one of only three Padres to win that award multiple times. The others include franchise icon Tony Gwynn, who won it seven times, and longtime catcher Benito Santiago, a four-time winner.

The San Diego Padres have entered a transition period this offseason after a hot start and bitter end to the 2021 season. Jayce Tingler will no longer serve as the team manager, with veteran skipper Bob Melvin as leader of the Friars as they try to break back into the playoffs.
