Superstar Shortstop To Return To San Diego Padres Lineup

The San Diego Padres, despite the litany of fantastic moves in recent years have been off to quite the slow start in 2023, but now, it may be about to turn around, as they are preparing to welcome back one of their biggest and most important stars.

After his PED suspension, superstar shortstop Fernando Tatis Jr. is set to return to the lineup tonight, and after the team has scored just 2 runs in their past four games, it's safe to say that he'll be welcomed back by the team. 

It's unlikely that fans will give him a nice welcome back, but the talent is undeniable, and if the Padres want to compete with the Dodgers in the NL West in 2023, they'll need him fully healthy and back to his best, so tonight is a start.
