Covey declines deal after diabetes diagnosis

Likely Type 1, Brewers' top pick opts for University of San Diego

MILWAUKEE -- For the first time in nearly two decades, the Brewers and a first-round Draft did not strike a deal. A stunning medical diagnosis got in the way.


Right-hander Dylan Covey, the 14th overall selection in June's First-Year Player Draft, woke up Friday thinking he was four days from signing his first professional baseball contract. He learned Friday afternoon that he was diabetic.


On Monday, only a few hours before the deadline for Major League teams and their picks to come to terms, came word with 95 percent certainty that it was Type 1 diabetes. Facing a lifetime of treatment and a major adjustment to his promising baseball career, Covey declined the Brewers' contract offer and said he would instead attend the University of San Diego.

If the type I is really the reason that he didn't sign, I think that he made a mistake - it's a mistake I understand but a mistake none-the-less.  I hope someone can show Dylan that he can play baseball just fine with type I.  My heart goes out to Dylan and his family, I know what is about to happen to them...
