Twins prospect Ryan Costello found dead in New Zealand hotel room

The statement said Costello's teammates were "naturally devastated" by the news.

Ryan Costello, a Minnesota Twins prospect, was found dead in his Auckland, New Zealand, hotel room.

Costello, from Wethersfield, Connecticut, was selected by the Seattle Mariners in the 31st round of the 2017 Major League Baseball draft after playing at Central Connecticut State University.

Tuatara expressed its "deepest condolences" to Costello's family and to the Twins organization.

Auckland's press release has claimed that preliminary indications are that Costello died of natural causes; however, nothing has been officially determined at this time. He played collegiately at Central Connecticut State University.

Two more of Costello's former sides, the Fort Myers Miracle and the Pensacola Blue Wahoos also spoke of the death. Costello hit.290 with 14 home runs during his collegiate career.

"His home run helped lift the Miracle to the FSL Championship in 2018".

The team said it was saddened to learn of the untimely passing of 23-year-old Ryan Costello. Not long after that All-Star appearance, Costello and pitcher Chase De Jong were traded to the Twins in exchange for pitcher Zach Duke. "Our thoughts and prayers go out to his family and the entire Twins organization". "He is the definition of a great teammate and has been taken from us far too soon".

On the Tuatara team's * a href="https://www.facebook.com/aucklandtuatara/?tn-str=k*F" *Facebook page, Mike Harrison wrote: "On behalf of his family here at home thank you for everyone who got to meet him there he said it was attractive and the people were so nice!"

The Tuatarás season gets underway against Perth at North Harbour Stadium on Thursday night, where a tribute is expected to be held honoring Costello.
