Did anybody not think he would be expendable? Well, thanks to shoulder surgery to repair a torn labrum in his right shoulder, he is out for the season.
Actually, the Mets moved him to the 60-day DL to also make room for Carlos Beltran.
It is kind of sad. Once upon a time, Tatis was a fan favorite. He kind of wore out his welcome with the fans. He became known as the ‘DP Guy” on the team. Fans would cringe when he would come to the plate.
Well, I wish him all the best. Speedy recovery. Although, it will not be fast enough to be back with the 2010 New York Mets. Maybe he can play cards with John Maine and Oliver Perez.
