Astros minor leaguer Jose Rosario dies in motorcycle accident
Terrible news coming out of the Dominican Republic, as the Astros announced Monday that minor league right-hander Jose Rosario died Sunday night in a motorcycle accident. He was just 20 years old.
Rosario was signed by the Astros in December of 2013. He split last season between the Dominican Summer League and the Gulf Coast League, posting a 4.40 ERA and 51/22 K/BB ratio over 57 1/3 innings.
Below is a statement from the Astros international director Oz Ocampo:
Our condolences to Rosario’s friends and family and the Astros organization.
