OU's Jonathan Gray Tests Positive for Adderall

Jonathan Gray, the University of Oklahoma pitcher who may be selected Thursday with the first pick in the Major League Baseball draft, tested positive for the stimulant Adderall, three high-ranking major league team executives told USA TODAY Sports.

The executives, each directly involved in the draft, requested anonymity because test results are supposed to be private.

The top 200 draft prospects are subjected to testing under Major League Baseball guidelines, however there are no penalties since they are still amateurs.

Adderall is banned by MLB, with a 25-game suspension for a second offense, unless the player received a therapeutic use exemption.

Yet, the team officials said they don't expect the positive test will hurt Gray's position in the draft since it involved a stimulant and not a steroid or human growth hormone. (USA Today)
