Dionisio Soldevila of Periodico Hoy reports that Domincan prosecutors are claimining that Pirates prospect Oneil Cruiz was under the influence of alcohol when he crashed his vehicle on Monday. (Dionisio Soldevila on Twitter)
The accident killed three people. It's an awful situation that could result in jail time for Diaz if what the prosecutors are saying is true. Initial reports were that alcohol wasn't involved, but this latest news clearly contradicts that. Cruz is a fascinating top-100 shortstop prospect who may never get a chance in the big leagues after this. This won't be the last we hear of this story.
