Regan's Rumblings: Who’s Caught My Eye?

Regan's Rumblings: Who’s Caught My Eye?

This article is part of our Regan's Rumblings series.

Any White Sox fans out there watching the Padres lately? Fernando Tatis is proving to be an absolute monster, batting .333/.417/.810 with eight home runs through his first 16 games. This isn't a huge shock after his .317/.379/.590 rookie season. Is he the No. 1 overall pick candidate in 2021? Despite the home park that supposedly suppresses offense, I have to think he is. If the steals pick up, he could make a run at a 20/20 season…in 60 games.

Who else has caught my eye so far? Here are a few:

Mike Yastrzemski, OF, SF

Is it time to just recognize the talent, get past the last name and be open to the idea that maybe this isn't a fluke and that he's just a good baseball player? I think it is. Yastrzemski made his debut last year as a 28-year-old rookie and surprised a bit by hitting .272/.334/.518 with 21 home runs in 411 PA. It's amazing that with the Orioles' roster as it is, that someone like the grandson of a legend couldn't break through. To be fair, Yastrzemski did have just a .739 OPS during three separate stints at Triple-A with the Orioles. His 26.0 K percentage and so-so 7.8 BB percentage last year left some room for regression, but instead, he's come out hitting .322/.452/.661 with four home runs, including one off Clayton Kershaw over the weekend. He's now an everyday player no doubt, as he has a 1.271 OPS against southpaws last year
