Padres pitcher Tatis Jr., who won the National League home run record last season, has been suspended for 80 games for using a banned substance.

This was announced by the major league organization on the 12th.

Following the suspension, the Padres released a statement saying it was "surprised and very disappointed. We hope Tatis Jr. will learn from this experience."
