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.

,Ravel Morrison has left Ostersunds in Sweden.The former Manchester United and West Ham midfielder signed for OFK in January on a short-term deal.However, it’s now emerged Morrison has walked out on the club.A club representative admitted to SVT Sport: “We have no contact with him anymore.”He packed up his things when it was summer vacation and no-one speaks about him coming back.” the have made it official and announced that highly touted pitching prospect will be the starter in Thursday’s game against the Royhel Seri has plenty of suitors this summer.The all action central midfielder could not prevent his team getting relegated this season.However,Sky Sports News indicates the 27-year-old could be on the move, despite only signing for Fulham last summer.als.

The Cardinals initially appeared reluctant to call upon Wacha just yet. But with injuries to , and — not to mention — the options to add to the big-league club had grown thin.

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. Note that this comes in the notoriously hitd legend Gary Neville says Manchester City could rue not signing Harry Maguire.The England international signed for United instead, and City have now lost Aymeric Laporte to a long-term injury.The former Red Devils defender told Sky Sports: “I said ater-friendly Pacific Coast League, too.

“It definitely scared me a little bit,” he said Wednesday. “My first swing I took in BP, I felt something. My second swing, I felt it again. My third swing, I felt it again. After the fourth swing, I realized something wasn’t right. That’s when I told Charlie [Manuel] I have some pain in my side. He told me to go see [head athletic trainer] Scott [Sheridan]. He took me out of the game.”

If Utley has a strained oblique, that could require a DL trip, andtervention from Liverpool defender Virgil van Dijk led to their winner at Newcastle United on Saturday.Trent Alexander-Arnold was due to take an 86th minute free-kick on the right flank of the pitch, only for Van Dijk to demand a change.He was seen g the team should know Thursday.

Here we go again with first baseman . This guy is really prone to slow starts.

After another disappointing April, LaRoche is now a career .214 hitter during March/April games. The good news is that LaRoche usually heats up as we get deeper into the summer. LaRoche’s slash line in the first half — .244/.323/.436/.759 — pales in comparison to his slash line in the second half — .293/.353/.533/.886.

I get why Fantasy owners have been . First base is such a deep position that you don’t have to endure prolonged slumps at the position because you can usually find a viable replacement on your bench or waivers. But if you can afford to be patient with LaRoche, then the payoff should be huge down the road.

Just some other numbers to keep in mind. LaRoche has a , which is lower than his career .307 mark, per FanGraphs.com. You look at his batted ball and plate-discipline numbers and nothing really jumps out, so it seems the hits haven’t been falling for the veteran first baseman. But once they do, then LaRoche might be a player you keep in your lineup.

There is no denying that first baseman was hitting the ball well before his injury, as a .542 batting average and three home runs in just 24 at-bats more than speaks for itself. He is set to return from his oblique injury in Week 6 (May 6-12), and may represent a tantalizing starting option for some owners.

Unfortunately, his 24 at-bats came sprinkled throughout the course of 18 days, and there is little indication that more playing time is going to become available upon his return. As our Scott White notes in , Adams does not make much sense as a starting option right now. Given the makeup of the Cardinals’ roster, Adams is likely to get lost in the shuffle, no matter how big a stick he might swing.
