Tatis Jr. Headlines the Big Movers on Stats Perform’s Weekly MLB Leaderboards

By: Stats Perform

Fernando Tatis Jr. made headlines for his grand slam on a 3-0 pitch on Monday that supposedly broke one of baseball’s mysterious and often criticized unwritten rules.

But what the 21-year-old shortstop should be getting attention for is the way he’s been swinging the bat for the San Diego Padres. Tatis has been on a tear this month, batting .333 with 10 home runs and 20 RBIs in 17 games since Aug. 3. He also leads the majors in home runs (12), RBIs (29) and ranks sixth in OPS (1.092).

Tatis has likewise soared up Stats Perform’s weekly leaderboards, moving into the Raw Value+ top 10 last week before climbing all the way up to third this week. He did not appear in the BIP+ top 10 a week ago, but now he’s fifth after going 7 for 19 with three homers and eight RBIs in four games this week.

Each week throughout this 60-game sprint of a season, we’ll reveal MLB’s offensive leaders in RV+, BIP+, Contact+ and Discipline+ and the pitching leaders in Raw Value-, Command+ and Whiff+.

Headlined by Raw Value leaders Corey Seager and Trevor Bauer, here are this week’s rankings (updated through Aug. 19). Batters needed a minimum of 70 plate appearances, while pitchers needed to face at least 80 batters to qualify:
