Fernando Tatis Jr. (24, San Diego), who lost his honor in an instant due to taking banned substances, is preparing to rise again after a difficult time.
In an interview with the San Diego Union-Tribune, an American media published on the 30th (Korean time), Tatis looked back on last season, saying, “The fact that I couldn’t play in the playoffs last year caused me depression.”
Tatis, who missed the first half of last year due to a wrist injury, was found to have the performance-enhancing drug Clostable in a doping test in August. As a result, he was suspended for 80 games and could not play a single game in the 2022 season.
What was even more critical to Tatis was that San Diego produced good results without him. Last season, San Diego recorded 89 wins and 73 losses (0.549 win rate), ranked second in the National League West Division, and made the achievement of rising to the league championship series in 24 years. 먹튀검증
Tatis, who watched the game with regret at home during the fall baseball season last year, confessed, “It was a really difficult moment.” “It’s really hard to be in the middle of the playoffs and not be able to do anything there,” he said. “It broke my heart.”
After being caught using a banned substance, Tatis said he would accept ridicule and ridicule. “I know what the story will be like on and off the pitch,” he said. “It’s up to me how it’s received.” He continued, “I can’t be loved by everyone. I’ll wait for all the boos and applause.”
Tatis underwent consecutive shoulder (September) and wrist (October) surgeries while he was unable to play last year. After focusing on rehabilitation in his home country, the Dominican Republic, he said he returned to San Diego earlier than usual in early January.
“I will show 100 percent swing this year,” said Tatis, confident in his physical condition. He explained, “Last time, my wrist recovered about 25%, but recently it has risen to 90%.”
If Tatis is in good physical condition, he can play from the 4th consecutive away game against Arizona, which will be held from April 21st. In the U.S., a scenario in which Tatis moves to the outfield, Zander Bogarts (31) to shortstop, and Kim Ha-seong (28) to second baseman is expected to be strong.
