Fernando Tatis Jr. Costs The Padres $340M

Banned MLB superstar Fernando Tatis Jr. is said to be 'feeling remorseful' following his 80-game suspension.

The San Diego shortstop spoke with Padres manager, Bob Melvin, on the phone Saturday. The skipper would not reveal much else about the 'private conversation.'

Tatis was suspended on Friday after testing positive for Clostebol, a performance-enhancing anabolic steroid.

The shock suspension was announced by the MLB moments before the Padres' 10-5 victory over the Washington Nationals Friday.

Despite the enormity of the ban and its impact on their season, Melvin neglected to bring it up with his players prior to Saturday's 4-3 loss in Washington. 

As for whether he wants Tatis to address teammates, the skipper replied:  'I don't know where and when that would potentially happen, so I'm not sure at this point.' 

Padres players were indubitably shocked by the ban, some went so far as to criticize the charismatic All-Star.
