Ryan Costello, MLB prospect for the Minnesota Twins was found dead in his hotel room in New Zealand on November 18. He was 23 years old.

Drafted out of Wethersfield, Connecticut, Costello was picked in the 31st round by the Seattle Mariners in the 2017 MLB Draft. The first baseman was traded to the Twins along with Chase De Jong on July 30, 2018. Costello was in New Zealand as he had just joined the Auckland Tuatara a few days prior.

The article goes on to state the following:

Before his death, Costello posted a tweet in response to a concerned fan online, which in hindsight feels bittersweet. Nick Quadrato of Connecticut tweeted, “Wishing my brotha @RCos13 the best of luck across the pond Stay Healthy!!” – to which the MLB prospect wrote, “Preciate it brotha!!” with the fist pump emoji.

According to multiple reports,Costello died in his sleep of natural causes.
