Ex-MLB pitcher Esteban Loaiza arrested with over 20 kilograms of drugs

Former Yankees pitcher Esteban Loaiza has been arrested with more than 20 kilograms of heroin or cocaine, the San Diego Sheriff's Office said Monday.

Per Passan, the two-time All-Star is charged with possession of drugs with intent to sell and is scheduled to be arraigned in a San Diego courtroom on Wednesday.

Loaiza spent 14 seasons in the major leagues, including a brief stint in 2004 with the Yankees.

His best season came with the Chicago White Sox in 2003, when Loaiza won 21 games and finished second in voting for the Cy Young Award.

The right-hander recorded doube-digit victories seven times and finished his career 126-114, having played for the Pirates, Rangers, White Sox, Blue Jays, A's, Dodgers, Nationals and Yankees.

His 126 Major League Baseball victories are second to only Fernando Valenzuela's 173 among natives of Mexico. Loaiza, Univision notes, was one married to the late singer Jenni Rivera, but she filed for divorce from him in the months before her death in a plane crash, in part due to allegations of financial impropriety on his part.
