Jonathan Gray Tests Positive For Banned Substance

With the MLB First Year Players Draft this Thursday June 6th a former Yankees draft pick may be in a bit of trouble after a failed test for a banned substance. The Yankees drafted Jonathan Gray in the 10th round of the 2011 draft only for Gray to go to Oklahoma and pitch two years of college ball. Gray looks to be the first overall pick of the Houston Astros on Thursday but news dropped today that Gray failed a test for a banned substance. Gray has been caught taking the drug Adderall, usually prescribed to those with ADD and ADHD, without a prescription. This banned substance does not look like it will bring a suspension with it but it could hurt Gray's negotiations when it comes to money with the Astros. FYI this is the same drug that Phillies catcher Carlos Ruiz failed his test for and received a 25 game suspension for. Gray still looks to be the number one overall pick but this has to hurt his character and bring up issues on his decision making which both should hit him in the wallet on Thursday.
