This is why we can’t have nice things!

A report out of Puerto Rico states that one of the Minnesota Twins top prospects, Eddie Rosario, has been suspended for fifty games due to a failed drug test. Rosario claims the failed drug test came about because of pills he took for an arm injury.

Rosario is one of the top prospects for the Twins and is now an infielder after first playing outfield in the minor leagues. Before the suspension, it was more than likely that Rosario would have made his major league debut in 2014, but these turn of events does put some hindrances in that plan for the 22-year-old Puerto Rican ballplayer.

The suspension does allow the Twins current second baseman Brian Dozier to play pressure free for most of the year without Rosario breathing down this neck right away.

MLB.com ranks Rosario as the Twins fifth best prospect behind Byron Buxton, Miguel Sano, Alex Meyer and Kohl Stewart.

The news was first reported by sportlivepr.com which is a Spanish website. If you don’t have a translator, the Star Tribune also has a version of the story.
