Padres: How Fernando Tatis Jr. compares to other top shortstops

Fernando Tatis Jr. may have the most potential of any young player on the Padres‘ roster. So it’s not a surprise that he comes in as one of the best shortstops in the game. Jim Bowden of The Athletic has been ranking the best players, by position, and Tatis lands at number five.

He gets right to the point, noting that it’s just a matter of time before the Padres’ superstar stands at the top of this list. But right now, he has Francisco Lindor, Javier Baez, Trevor Story, and Xander Bogaerts ahead of him, in that order.
