Fernando Tatis Sr. blasts MLB, says son's drug suspension is 'a catastrophe for baseball

Aug 16, 2022

Fernando Tatis Sr. strongly criticized Major League Baseball for the way it handled an 80-game suspension levied against his son for a positive drug test.

Three days after MLB announced San Diego Padres shortstop Fernando Tatis Jr. had tested positive for the banned substance clostebol, the former major leaguer told "The Midday Show" in his native Dominican Republic that the incident unnecessarily damaged his son's reputation.

"I don't think there was reason to destroy the image of a player over something as minor as that," he said in Spanish, according to ESPN.
