RETURN: Forrest Whitley Back With AA Corpus Christi
Houston Astros top starting pitching prospect Forrest Whitley has returned to baseball today, joining the Corpus Christi Hooks of the AA Texas League. Whitley, 20, had been serving a 50-game suspension for violating MLB’s substance abuse policy. He was one of the top pitchers in all of the MiLB last season. He will look to build on that success into 2018, with the possibility of a late-season call-up to the Astros definitely in the cards if he performs well.
Here’s a link to the full story from the Houston Chronicle.
