The Rays 12th round pick from the 2009 draft, Andrew Bellatti, was seriously injured in a head-on collision yesterday. Bellatti was doing 80, in what appears to be a residential area in Spring Valley, California. The accident killed the other driver, and seriously injured Bellatti’s girlfriend and the son of the other driver (hat tip to RaysProspects.com).
Rubber Slab has another write-up on the incident, including additional information on Bellatti.
Bellatti made 11 appearances, including 3 starts, for the Gulf Coast League Rays after being drafed. He posted a 3.49 ERA and struck out 27 in 28.1 innings.
