Car Crash Claims Life Of 21-Year-Old Former Mets Prospect

Tragic news in the baseball world today, as a former New York Mets minor league prospect has died in a horrific car wreck.  

Darwyn Encarnacion was just 21 years old. According to MLB Insider Hector Gomez, Encarnacion apparently hit a bridge while driving his SUV in the Dominican Republic and crashed into the void. Gruesome video of the demolished car was posted in the D.R.

“He was a great human being, very disciplined, respectful and polite," a Mets executive told Gomez. "He played with us for just one year, in 2019. He was even using his scholarship that the team gave him when he signed and was currently studying at university."
