Astros' prospect Forrest Whitley suspended for 50 games

Astros' prospect Forrest Whitley suspended for 50 games

The Hooks play their 51st game on May 29.

"Can confirm @Buster_ESPN report".

Aside Shohei Ohtani, he is the No. 1 right-handed pitching prospect in baseball. "Source tells me Whitley was at an out of state college baseball game as a fan after his season was over and was given an unknown stimulant by a friend in order to help keep him awake on his long drive home".

"MLB has released the information that they're going to release".

Whitley was drafted by the Astros in the first round of the 2016 draft and moved up to Double A baseball last season.

It is possible he did not know they existed, but Rybka claims the two kept in touch after the yacht incident. Putin and other Kremlin officials, had been acting on behalf of the government to silence Mr.


Astros general manager Jeff Luhnow spoke to KPRC about Whitley's suspension at the team's spring training site in Florida. He's a right-hander who posted a 2.83 ERA with 143 strikeouts in 92.1 innings across three different levels of the Astros' minor league system in 2017.

Whitley, 20, is considered the top pitching prospect in the game, and MLB ranks him as the No. 9 overall prospect in baseball.

Whitley is the third Astros' prospect, along with Dean Deetz and Jonathan Singleton, to be suspended for violations of the minor-league drug prevention program this offseason.

Before the suspension, it was likely that Whitley would have gotten a late-season call-up to the majors if he continued to mow down hitters.
