TAMPA, Fla. (AP) — New York Yankees pitcher Michael Pineda has been charged with drunken driving in Tampa.
Hillsborough County jail records show that the 23-year-old right-hander was arrested shortly after 3 a.m. Monday. He was released hours later on $500 bail.
Pineda went to the Yankees in the offseason trade that sent catcher Jesus Montero to Seattle. Pineda remained in Tampa at the Yankees’ spring training facility after hurting his shoulder in March and has not pitched in a game this season.
