Complained of breathing problems on Sunday, went to the ER, fell into a coma and passed by Monday evening. Due to massive organ failure.

Take it for what you will... but Twitter is saying massive cocaine overdose.

I didn't realize he was that young, it seems like he's been out of the league for a while.  Sad.

Oh wow, that's terrible. He had a couple great seasons.

He started in the World Series, didn't he? Tommy Hunter did

Last pitched in MLB in 2013, in minors the last 2 years.  Weird, sad story.

Wow, I need to start following the people you follow on Twitter. After this post, I didn't see any indication of OD until the news officially broke yesterday.

It helps to know people from my past working in print media!

I'm sure your Fangraphs contacts knew!
