Nationals minor league prospect Fausto Segura dies in motorcycle accident in Dominican Republic

Washington Nationals minor league pitcher Fausto Segura died in motorcycle accident in the Dominican Republic on Sunday, the team announced in a statement Monday.

“He was beloved by his teammates, coaches, coordinators and everyone he came in contact with throughout our organization,” the Nationals said.

The 23-year-old signed with the Nationals in July of 2017. Last season he played for the Auburn Doubledays in Class low-A where he posted a 3.21 ERA with 33 strikeouts in 17 appearances. He went 4-6 with a 3.88 ERA in 32 games as a professional, also playing in the Dominican Summer League (2017) and Gulf Coast League (2018).

I actually saw him pitch, in this game. He gave up two (unearned) runs but got the win.

Ave atque vale.
