Washington Nationals star Juan Soto took to Instagram to let everyone know he’s all for Fernando Tatis Jr. trolling Trevor Bauer after taking him yard.
Baseball is really fun right now, isn’t it? Leave it to the young stars of the game to bring out even more entertainment than we’re used to seeing. Lately, it’s been all about Fernando Tatis Jr., as the slugger has belted four homers over his past two games against the Dodgers.
This included taking Trevor Bauer deep twice, which stole headlines everywhere. To make things even better, Tatis went ahead and trolled Bauer on one of the blasts as well. You know who loved seeing it? Washington Nationals stud Juan Soto.

Soto sure took things to a new level here. Goodness, Bauer might see this and blow a gasket. With that said, Bauer actually came out and said he doesn’t mind Tatis celebrating after taking him yard, as he thinks it does make the game more fun. For Bauer, if he doesn’t want to get trolled, he knows he needs to not let Tatis hit blasts off of him.
The next time the Nats and Dodgers face off, Bauer will most definitely be motivated to strike out Soto after seeing his latest Instagram activity. Fans are making a mockery of the reigning NL Cy Young winner right now and Soto’s move only adds to things.
While Bauer called out Tatis on Twitter for peaking at signs, that doesn’t take away from the fact that the Padres star had a day to remember facing off against him at the plate. The Dodgers-Padres rivalry really is great, with Tatis and Bauer only adding more fuel to the fire.
