Fernando Tatis Jr and a 2022 thrown in the trash with the Padres

The 2022 season in the Major League Baseball (MLB) for Fernando Tatis Jr It was one to forget, since he has not played any game at all so far this season, and a few hours ago it was confirmed that he will not play again for the remainder of it.

A series of decisions led the brilliant Dominican baseball player of the San Diego Padres to miss completely what he was painting could be his best year as a professional in the Major Leagues, reasons why unfortunately, only he remains responsible for not having contributed to his team this year.

It all started in the offseason, when it was revealed that Fernando Tatis Jr suffered a fracture in your wrist left in his native Dominican Republicwhich occurred in a motorcycle accident, which he had already been warned to stop using, precisely because he was exposed to an injury of this type.

Millionaires loses

It is worth mentioning that the young star of just 23 years old, Tatis Jr signed a contract extension for 14 years and 340 million dollarsone of the most lucrative in history, so not having him on the field is a huge loss of money for the team and the league, as they are paying him without playing.

Continuing with the questionable decision-making of ‘El Niño’, a few hours ago the MLB central office suspended the baseball player for 80 games, after having tested positive for a substance to improve sports performance, called Clostebol, which was found in his body, Tatis Jr argued, because he took it “inadvertently, as medicine to treat ringworm.”

Being a professional who has a contract for hundreds of millions of dollars, the decision to continue using a motorcycle despite the risk of injury, as well as the use of a medication that he should have consulted before to prevent any substance from entering his body undue, leaves much to be desired for a ‘professional’ who now will not be able to play again for the rest of the year although he was about to return after overcoming his fracture, and will even lose games at the beginning of the following season.
