I think that SS Fernando Tatis Jr. is the MVP of the Padres this season. But I want to see what Padres fans think.
The only thing that makes this a question is the amount of games Tatis played this season. Tatis played in just 84 games because of two injuries.
At the end of April, Tatis was placed on the Injured List (IL) due to a left hamstring strain. Tatis was out for a little over a month. Then in the middle of August, Tatis was placed on the IL due to a back strain which he suffered on a swing. This injury caused Tatis to miss the rest of the season.
Tatis had 106 hits, 22 HR, 53 RBIs and a .317 BA in 334 AB.
Here are a few of the other candidates for MVP from the Padres:
1B Eric Hosmer: 619 AB, 164 hits, 22 HR, 99 RBIs, .265 AVG
3B Manny Machado: 587 AB, 150 hits, 32 HR, 85 RBIs, .256 AVG
RHP Kirby Yates: 60.2 IP, 0-5 record, 101 SO, 1.19 ERA, 41 SV
RHP Craig Stammen: 82.0 IP, 8-7 record, 73 SO, 3.29 ERA, 31 HLD
RHP Chris Paddack: 140.2 IP, 9-7 record, 153 SO, 3.33 ERA
