According to media reports and pictures from the scene, Cubs reliever, Pedro Strop was involved in a car accident in the Dominican Republic late Thursday night. While details are fairly hazy, it appears that the crash was non-fatal, and Pedro Strop is in stable condition. According to some reports, Strop’s car was rear-ended, prompting the car to spin out of control and crash into the estate of deceased MLB player, Jose Uribe. There is no word about the involvement of alcohol, and the crash comes about month after the tragic death of St. Louis Cardinals outfielder, Oscar Taveras.

LRT: Translated – Strop and another ball player hit a wall. Both alive.
