San Diego Padres Superstar Fernando Tatis Jr Suspended 80 Games For PED Violation
The MLB has just announced that San Diego Padres Superstar Fernando Tatis Jr will be suspended for 80 games without pay after testing positive for Clostebol, which is a banned performance-enhancing substance. The Padres have released a statement regarding Tatis’ suspension:
“We were surprised and extremely disappointed to learn today that Fernando Tatis Jr. tested positive for a performance-enhancing substance in violation of Major League Baseball’s Joint Prevention and Treatment Program and subsequently received an 80-game suspension without pay. We fully support the Program and are hopeful that Fernando will learn from this experience.”
Tatis has missed all of 2022 due to a fractured left wrist he sustained during the offseason. Tatis was just going to begin his rehab assignment in Double-A in the coming days, but will now have to wait to take the field again until 2023.
Tatis is one of the biggest names in all of baseball and was on many pundits' “Future Hall of Fame” watchlist. Tatis struggled to stay on the field throughout his short career due to injury, but when he played he made an instant impact. Over three seasons, Tatis played in 273 games and hit 81 Home Runs–42 of which came in 2021, where he finished third in MVP voting.
The Padres were surely looking forward to the dangerous lineup of him, Manny Machado, and new addition Juan Soto–but for now, they’ll have to wait.
