“It’s the second time we’ve been disappointed with him, and you hope he grows up and learns from this and learns that it’s about more than just him right now,”
Padres Joe Musgrove also went on take some shots at Tatis.
“He’s a young kid,” “He’s going to learn his lessons or whatnot. But ultimately, I think you got to start showing a little bit of remorse and you got to start showing us that you’re committed to it and you want to be here.”
