The bad news on Twins prospects this offseason continues. Twins second base prospect Eddie Rosario has been suspended 50 games for violating the minor league drug policy, according to a report out of Puerto Rico.
Rosario is considered one of the team's top prospects, behind Miguel Sano and Byron Buxton.
He was playing winter ball in Puerto Rico.
Per La Velle E. Neal of the Star Tribune:
According to the report on sportlivepr.com, Rosario contacted his winter league team in Mayaguez to inform it of the suspension. According to the report, Rosario said he the positive test came from some pills he took to help recover from an arm injury.
Buxton (strained left shoulder) and Sano (strained UCL in his throwing elbow) were injured in offseason baseball leagues.
