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.

Wacha, a 21-year-old right-hander, was drafted in the first round (19th overall) out of Texas A&M last June. Since then, he has dominated the minors. In 21 innings last season, ranging from Rookie ball to Double-A, Wacha had a 0.86 ERA, 0.57 WHIP and 40 strikeouts in 21 innings. In nine starts for Triple-A Memphis this season, Wacha is 4-0 with a 2.05 ERA, 0.95 WHIP and 34 strikeouts in 52 2/3 innings.

Cueto, 27, finished fourth in NL Cy Young voting last season and was 1-0 with a 2.60 ERA and 1.04 WHIP before hitting the DL this season. So his return is obviously good news for the Reds, but it also leaves them with a dilemma.

There has been an ongoing debate in the blogosphere on vs. , as to who should be sent to the minors upon Cueto’s return.

Leake, 25, has made 85 career starts, including 30 last season as the Reds won 97 games and the NL Central. He’s 2-2 with a 4.32 ERA and 1.49 WHIP this season.

Cingrani, 23, has been excellent since being recalled to take Cueto’s rotation spot. The left-hander is 2-0 with a 2.89 ERA, 0.96 WHIP and a whopping 37 strikeouts in 28 innings.

“Tyler Moore is in a little bit of a funk, he had been kind of all year,” manager Davey Johnson said, per .com. “He hasn’t been himself. We are going to try to get him more at-bats to get him in a groove.”

Hitting coach Rick Eckstein said Moore is missing on too many fastballs, which he added is also a problem for Danny Espinosa, who is also off to a slow start.

“They have to get back on the fastball,” Eckstein said. “You can’t be in between. …. When you are facing guys as tough as Kershaw, you are not going to get too many pitches that are over the heart of the plate. The breaking stuff, when it’s down in the zone, it has late sharp bite on it. It’s pretty good. You have to get on the fastball.

Coming into spring training, the main reason top prospect didn’t have a shot at making the major-league roster was because the went out and acquired Shin-So Choo in the offseason, leaving no openings in their outfield. Since then, they’ve lost starting left fielder Ryan Ludwick and his replacement, Chris Heisey, to injury. So wheeeeere’s Billy?

Stuck at Triple-A, unfortunately. He picked the worst possible time to go into an offensive funk, batting .205 in 88 at-bats. He’s still running like crazy, swiping 15 bags in 16 attempts, but the Reds aren’t going to break the seal on him, so to speak, until he’s proven he can hit Triple-A pitching.

Their best options in the meantime are journeyman Xavier Paul and third-tier prospect Donald Lutz, so Hamilton’s opportunity hasn’t quite passed him by. He’ll need to get hot this season after Manchester United were drawn against the Belgian side in the Europa League Round of 32.Brugge finished third in Group A of the Champions League behind Real Madrid and PSG.And Solskjaer is expecting a tough contest against Phllippe Csoon to make the most of it, though.
