Gray, a top MLB draft prospect, tests positive for stimulant Adderall

Right-handed pitcher Jonathan Gray, a 100-mph-throwing University of Oklahoma ace who’s widely considered one of the top three draft-eligible amateur players in the country, tested positive for the stimulant Adderall, maier League should persist with VAR.Wenger has recently taken up a role with FIFA as chief of global football development, and gave his thoughts on the video technology being used to help match officials.And he pinpointed the lack of referral by referjor-league team sources said.

Test results are sent to the 30 teams, so all are aware of the result. Sources said Gray did not have a prescription.

There is no penalty for a failed test for a draft-eligible player such as Gray. Major leaguers receive a 25-game ban for a second failure out of their squad for the Audi Cup in Germany.The Welshman’s future is uncertain after his proposed move to Jiangsu Suning fell through over the weekend.Zinedine Zidane is also without Thibaut Courtois, who will spend the next month out of action w for a stimulant, though not a first one. Acced a new deal after listening to his “gut”.Origi says “a gut feeling” told him to stay at Liverpool and the striker is ready to kick on from the Champions League-winning goals which changed his life.The 24-year-old did not start a Premier League gameording to an ESPN.com report citing league sources, Gray might be subjected to follow-up testing when his professional career begins.

Gray, a junior at OU, is believed to be the only one of 200 draft-eligible players to have tested positive for any drug. The top 200 players are tested by to provide information for teams before Thursday’s first day of the amateur draft.

A phone message left for his agent wasn’t immediately returned.

Major leaguers with certain conditions can apply for a therapeutic-use exemption (T.U.E.) that excuses them from being tested for specific drugs. It is estimated that about 100 players have a T.U.E., many of which allow stimulants to combat various conditions, including ADD.

There is no indication that a failure for a stimulant might affect a prospect’s draft attractiveness or negotiating leverage. Gray is considered by most to be among the top three players, along with Stanford right-hander Mark Appel and University of San Diego slugging third baseman Kris Bryant.

“I don’t think it’s that big a deal,” one GM said. “The kid may have [a condition].”

Gray was originally picked by the out of junior college but turned down a bonus offer believed to be about $500,000. He is widely expected to get at least 10 times that after showing vast improvement as a Sooner. He has been clocked many times at 100 mph, and scouts marvel how he can carry that velocity late into games.

“I honestly have no idea,” said Price when asked for a possible return date. “You have to give it a chance to heal, a chance to get better, and that’s what we’re doing right now. … It all depends on how I feel when I play catch. Not trial and error, but we’re going have to base it on day-to-day.”

Price, 27, made sure to mention he has been doing strengthening exercises and the triceps is pain-free. “I feel great. And that’s probably the toughest thing for me right now is my arm feels the way it does, and my body feels the way it does, and I’m not able to do anything yet because we just have to give it time, and I understand that,” he added.

Right-hander Jake Odorizzi allowed three runs in five innings against the Blue Jays last week as the rotation fill-in. He’ll start again on Monday. If he pitches well enough during Price’s absence, he could stick with the team and replace the ineffective Roberto Hernandez (5.73 ERA and 1.44 WHIP).
