Minnesota Twins prospect Ryan Costello found dead in New Zealand





Ryan Costello, a prospect in the Minnesota Twins organization, was found dead in New Zealand at age 23.

Costello arrived in Auckland last week to play his first season with the Auckland Tuatara, a team in the Australian Baseball League. In a news release, the Tuatara said "preliminary indications suggest he died of natural causes."

Costello, from Wethersfield, Connecticut, was selected by the Seattle Mariners in the 31st round of the 2017 MLB draft after playing at Central Connecticut State University. He was traded to the Twins in July 2018.

Costello split the 2019 season between the Single-A Fort Myers Miracle and Double-A Pensacola Blue Wahoos in Florida, playing in 108 games.
