Jonathan Gray has tested positive for Adderall, a banned substance. It won't result in a suspension, but Keith Law indicates that it could result in a huge discount in signing bonus. Meaning Gray will likely sign for cheap with the Astros. It seems the Twins are destined to take Kohl Stewart.

Pretty much covered in the Gray thread in teh minor league section......but if it does result in a huge discount, I can see Houston taking him. They get a top talent, and they get the discount they want.

I cringe when I read his name. So I must admit I have a bias against this Gray kid.

Adderal is a banned substance? Is there an exception if you actually have a prescription and a diagnosis for ADHD or Narcolepsy?

I'm no athlete, but I crash cars when I'm not on Adderall, odds are that at least a handful of potential MLB players also have a medical need for it.

As I understand the rules, there's an exception if you have a prescription for it. Shane Victorino, for example, is a guy with ADHD who uses it legitimately with a prescription.

Not surprising at all IMO. Take it from someone who is just one year removed from undergrad, tons of kids use Adderall to cram during finals. More than you could ever imagine. It was a dumb mistake, but not really one that raises Randy Moss esque red flags for me personally. Yes, it can be used to improve on-field performance, but I don't think Gray's stuff this year is anywhere near even slightly dependent upon Adderall.
