Fernando Tatis Jr. has been suspended 80 games (and the rest of the 2022 season) after testing positive for Clostebol, a performance-enhancing substance in violation of Major League Baseball's Joint Drug Prevention and Treatment Program.

For San Diego, this one is going to hurt a bit.  Tatis Jr. is an All-Star shortstop. The Padres had the 7th shortest odds of winning the 2022 World Series following some high profile trades that oddsmakers believe boosted their chances of winning the title.

"It turns out that I inadvertently took a medication to treat ringworm that contained Clostebol," Tatis said. "I should have used the resources available to me in order to ensure that no banned substances were in what I took. I failed to do so.

"I want to apologize to [team owner] Peter [Seidler], AJ [Preller], the entire Padres organization, my teammates, Major League Baseball and fans everywhere for my mistake. I have no excuse for my error, and I would never do anything to cheat or disrespect this game I love. I have taken countless drug tests throughout my professional career, including on March 29, 2022, all of which have returned negative results until this test."
