We've seen some dramatic changes in MLB player futures odds over the course of the season. Awards like the Cy Young always shift depending on injuries to key contenders. In the NL Most Valuable Player race, Fernando Tatis Jr. (-200) missed 11 straight games to start August, but the San Diego Padres star has emerged again as the favorite to win the MVP, according to FanDuel Sportsbook.
Tatis sits ahead of Philadelphia Phillies outfielder Harper (+300, who's made a remarkable rise in MVP and surged sharply in August with Tatis sidelined. Now those two will decide the 2021 NL Most Valuable Player in the final weeks of the regular season with both teams chasing a playoff spot.
The Phillies' slugger has scored 88 runs and is top five in the National League in HRs (32) and batting average (.307). Harper's 1.033 OPS leads the NL in front of Tatis (.987), who is hitting .280 with 38 HRs, 90 RBIs and 91 runs scored. Tatis also has 25 stolen bases to trail only Trea Turner.
