Additionally, he will miss the first 32 games of the upcoming season as well as the rest of the current season due to his suspension, announced by MLB on Friday night.

Fernando Tatis Jr.’s drug use and Clostebol results led to 80-game suspension

The Office of the Commissioner of Major League Baseball has imposed an 80-game suspension without pay on San Diego Padres shortstop Fernando Tatis Jr.

After testing positive for Clostebol, a performance-enhancing substance, he was also suspended for violating Major League Baseball’s anti-doping prevention and treatment program.

The suspension took effect immediately and prevents the All-Star shortstop from playing in the major leagues this season.

According to a statement from the Padres, Fernando Tatis Jr. was granted an 80-game unpaid ban after testing positive for a performance-enhancing drug in violation of Major League Baseball’s Joint Prevention and Treatment Program.

Tatis apologized for his actions, telling the Padres organization, the league and the public it was “my mistake.”

“I have no excuse for my oversight, and I would never do anything to cheat or undermine this game that I admire,” Tatis said.

I’ve taken many drug tests in my professional career, including one on March 29, 2022, and all came back negative until this one.

How did Fernando Tatis Jr. get away with it?

Tatis broke his left wrist during spring training, forcing him to miss the entire season. The Padres, who were in the hunt for the playoffs, hoped he would return and boost their chances after beginning a rehab mission at Double-A.

The Padres star would not be allowed to play for the Dominican Republic in the World Baseball Classic in March, according to MLB, which also said the punishment would be indefinite.

He was also the seventh player this season to be suspended for violating the major league drug policy. Due to minor league drug rules, 33 players were suspended in total.

Players who test positive for PEDs are also excluded from the playoffs that year.

Padres general manager AJ Preller said he was notified of the ban late Friday afternoon. He claimed to have read his player’s statement but has yet to speak to Tatis.

The slugger will not be able to play again until the 2023 season, according to Marca. In a similar spirit, he mentioned in his apology letter his intention to return to the pitch in 2023.

He writes: “I am terribly heartbroken.” Anywhere else in the world would be better for me than being on the field competing with my teammates.

“I first filed an appeal against the suspension, but after acknowledging that my mistake caused this result, I decided to start serving it immediately. I look forward to joining my colleagues in the field in 2023.”

Tatis will sit out the next 48 regular season games this season and will complete the remainder of his sentence at the start of the next one. The Padres’ postseason contests will count toward the 80 games Tatis must miss.
