Former Texas Rangers pitcher Esteban Loaiza, according to NBCSports.com, was arrested Friday in California for allegedly transporting 44 pounds of heroin and cocaine.
Online jail records for the San Diego County Sheriff's Department show Loaiza is to be arraigned Wednesday and his bail has been set at $200,000.
In his career in the majors, Loaiza pitched for Texas for three seasons, but also spent four years with the Pirates and three with both the White Sox and Blue Jays. Loaiza also had quick stops with the Dodgers, A's, Yankees and Nationals.
"His best season came in 2003 when he went 21-9 with a 2.90 ERA for the White Sox, finishing second in the Cy Young balloting. For his career he was 126-114 with a 4.65 ERA in 377 games, starting 333 of them," NBC Sports said.
When Texas traded him in 2000 to Toronto, it was for future superstar and Rangers legend Michael Young.
