Former Seton Hill pitcher DellaValle suspended for 2nd failed drug test

Seton Hill product Perry DellaValle is pitching well for the St. Louis Cardinals’ Gulf Coast League team.

Former Seton Hill ace pitcher Perry DellaValle has to serve a 50-game suspension in the minor leagues after a second positive test for a drug of abuse.

The suspension was levied in late July.

DellaValle, 23, is in his rookie season with Palm Beach Cardinals, the Class A affiliate of St. Louis. He had been pitching well, to the tune of a 5-6 record and 3.22 ERA in 19 starts.

The Florida State League all-star also had one relief appearance.

DellaValle, who hails from North Royalton, Ohio, was a 27th-round draft pick of the Cardinals in 2018.

He was ranked 50th on the most recent Cardinal Nation Top 50 Prospect List.
