Delino DeShields Jr. Arrested On DUI Charges

Astros 2010 first round pick Delino DeShields Jr., was arrested in Georgia on Sunday morning for driving under the influence of alcohol. Because he was also underage and committed a traffic violation, the amount of bond he had to pay was upped to $2,500.

GM Ed Wade’s comments on the matter, in a completely unsurprising twist, didn’t say much at all:

“Our position is it’s a private, police matter and we don’t have any comment on it,” Astros general manager Ed Wade told MLB.com.

While this doesn’t really mean a whole lot, for now, it’s another black mark against a farm system that doesn’t have a whole lot of credibility in the industry right now. DeShields still has a lot to prove as a prospect.
