"If Ever There Was A Time To Do PED’s...It Was Now, Early In His Contract"

Fernando Tatis Jr originally signed a 14 year deal worth $340M with the San Diego Padres but the big annual value doesn't even kick in until 2025 ($20M), with another huge bump in 2029 ($36M.)

In theory, if Tatis Jr was to be suspended without pay for violating MLB's policy for testing positive for PED's, the time would be now while he's still ultimately in arbitration years.

Spotrac.com's Mike Ginnitti speaks on this and football related financial topics in the podcast clip below.
