Good morning, Mets fans!

Big news from Major League Baseball Friday, as it became public that Padres superstar Fernando Tatis Jr. was suspended for 80 games for performance enhancing drugs.

Mark Feinsand of reported that Tatis tested positive for Clostebol, a performance-enhancing substance in violation of MLB’s Joint Drug Prevention and Treatment Program.

The star had just started a rehab assignment after missing the entire season to this point with a fractured left wrist.

The Padres were severely banking on the return of Tatis’ bat to the lineup. They also felt really good about their World Series chances after acquiring Juan Soto at the trade deadline. Now that they won’t have the thump of Tatis in the lineup, it makes their gamble to get Soto even more risky.
