MLB said Tatis tested positive for Clostebol, an anabolic steroid. Tatis said he accidentally took a medication to treat ringworm that contained the banned substance.
Analysis: The penalty imposed by MLB was effective immediately, meaning the shortstop - who had been out the entire season because of a broken wrist but was expected to return to the playoff contenders next week - cannot play in the majors this year. Tatis will miss the remaining 48 regular-season games this year and the first 32 next year. Any postseason games the Padres play this year would count toward the 80 that Tatis must sit out.

Analysis: Tatis seems on pace to return by the time the Padres return from an East Coast road trip that ends on Aug. 17. The 2021 All-Star played five innings at shortstop Sunday and is 0 for 5 with two walks thus far on the stint.
