Prior to last season, Fernando Tatis Jr. inked a massive $330 million, 14-year contract with, making him one of the highest-paid players in the history of professional sports.
For now, the Padres have decided not to recoup or void the contract, because they can’t determine for certain that Tatis hurt himself during the motorcycle wreck, and don’t want to risk messing the relationship with their franchise cornerstone.
But they will tell Fernando Tatis Jr. that he cannot be driving motorcycles anymore. Probably a good decision for everyone…
