In a stunning development, the MLB world was shocked by the suspension of San Diego Padres star shortstop Fernando Tatis Jr. for violating the league’s PED policy. With that, Tatis will be suspended for 80 games, which ends his 2022 season and eats up part of the 2023 season.
ESPN’s Jeff Passan was among those to report with Passan on it first.
Tatis has missed all of this year so far while recovering from an offseason motorcycle accident he didn’t — and couldn’t — report to the Padres. He couldn’t because of the CBA lockout that spilled into March of this year.
