Astros Prospect Forrest Whitley Suspended 50 Games For Drug Violation

Astros prospect Forrest Whitley suspended 50 games for violation of MiLB drug program

He finished the year with Double-A Corpus Christi Hooks and struck out 11 batters in six innings while allowing no runs in his debut against the Tulsa Drillers.

"Can confirm @Buster_ESPN report".

One of baseball's top pitching prospects has received a 50-game suspension.

Regardless, Whitley will miss a large portion of the 2018 season.

Defence Minister, two others to carry out assessment of Boko Haram attack
The minister disclosed this in a chat with state house correspondents after the meeting of the Federal Executive Council (FEC). Yobe police commissioner Abdumaliki Sunmonu, said the students are being profiled to know who is missing.

Miketinac later corrected that tweet to say that Whitley was returning from a college football game, not a college baseball game. "I'm not in a position to release any information beyond that", Astros General Manager Jeff Luhnow told the Athletic's Jake Kaplan. Baseball America has him ranked 10th, ESPN's Keith Law 8th, and Baseball Prospectus 10th - yeah, he's widely regarded as the top prospect arm in the game if you don't count Shohei Ohtani.

Whitley was an outside shot to see time during the season with the Astros, but was tracking as a member of the 2019 rotation.

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. "It's likely he will work out at the team's ST complex during his suspension".
