    Per Buster Olney. Violation of Milb drug program. No other details known yet.

    This sucks out loud.

    "Astros pitching prospect Forrest Whitley has been suspended for fifty games, according to Buster Olney of ESPN.com (Twitter link). The ban is drug-related, per the report, though it is not clear just what improper substance Whitley was deemed to have used. Typically, fifty-game bans are handed out for drugs of abuse rather than performance-enhancing substances.

    Whitley, a 20-year-old right-hander, greatly elevated his stock in 2017. Indeed, many outlets now consider him one of the best pitching prospects in all of baseball, with only the uniquely situated Shohei Ohtani drawing greater plaudits. Baseball America, MLB.com, Baseball Prospectus, ESPN.com, and Fangraphs all rated Whitley within the top ten overall pre-MLB players in the game in their most recent rankings."

    The press release from MLB does not specify, which is unusual. Normally it states "drug of abuse" or which type of PED it was.

    This is for something different.

    This is highly disconcerting. Hopefully Whitley learns from this experience and never does it again.

    Unknown stimulants were my favorite as a young chap in the 90's...now I have a hole in my head the size of mount Rushmore.
    Look, I'm gonna be honest with you. I really need a job. And I will take any position, as long as it doesn't involve having sex with old ladies for money or bear traps. Those are my two bugaboos. While mulling over my resume feel free to check out my baseball card collection, it's small and simple, kinda like me - >>>>> http://s822.photobucket.com/user/JDf...ds%20n%20stuff

    Will Unknown Stimulants be the title of your unpublished autobiography out on ebook?
