Former Major League Baseball pitcher Esteban Loaiza has been arrested in California on suspicion of smuggling cocaine and heroin.

The charges involve possessing and transporting more than 20 kilograms of cocaine and heroin for sale. The San Diego County Sheriff's Department says Loaiza was booked into jail Friday evening and held in lieu of $200,000 US bail.

It was not immediately known if Loaiza has hired a lawyer, and he could not be reached for comment.
