The MLB winter meetings are heating up as a few teams have ignited a fire through their acquisitions. The Yankees themselves grabbed headlines by re-signing the iconic Aaron Judge. On the other hand, the Padres acquired the enigmatic shortstop Xander Bogaerts from the Boston Red Sox. Therefore, a trade with the Yankees for Tatis Jr. (also a shortstop), appeared to have a high possibility.

The news of Tatis Jr.’s recent visit to New York only baked out more pies in the sky.

Nevertheless, setting aside all the rumors and speculations, in truth, Tatis Jr. in all likelihood was visiting his doctor. He missed out on the beginning part of this year’s season due to a wrist injury. Following this, he took clostebol and tested positive for PED intake. Consequently, he got banned from 80 games with immediate effect. Therefore, it was rather a routine check with his doctor, who is from New York.
