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.
