Fernando Tatis Jr. being recruited by foreign team amid MLB cancellation news

Fernando Tatis Jr

Fernando Tatis Jr. may not have trouble finding work during the current MLB stoppage.

The San Diego Padres phenom got recruited by Mexican professional baseball team Toros de Tijuana in a tweet on Tuesday.

Tatis seemed to be pretty open to their recruiting efforts and replied back with a few emojis.

The exchange comes in the wake of the news that Major League Baseball is cancelling regular season games after failing to reach an agreement with the MLBPA on a new Collective Bargaining Agreement.

As far as job opportunities go, the Toros’ offer has to be a pretty intriguing one for the All-Star shortstop Tatis. He has already played overseas in the Winter League before, and Tijuana is just a quick border crossing away from San Diego (only about 20 miles). It definitely looks like Tatis is in much better shape than this fellow MLB slugger searching for a new gig.
