BREAKING: Former All-Star Pitcher Esteban Loaiza Arrested In Massive Cocaine and Heroin Bust
Former MLB pitcher Esteban Loaiza might be going away for a very long time after he was arrested in San Diego on Friday on three drug-related felony charges. One of them included possession of more than 44 pounds of cocaine and/or heroin. You read that correctly.
This is a new one: Esteban Loaiza, drug kingpin.
The second-winningest pitcher from Mexico in MLB history was arrested Friday with 20 kilos of heroin or cocaine, according to San Diego police records. He’ll be in court Wednesday to face felony drug charges. Details are in pics. pic.twitter.com/312pf21Q4F

His court date is scheduled for Wednesday, Feb. 14, and bail has been set at $200,000.
It makes you wonder what happened to all the money he made during his career.
During the 2006 season, Loaiza signed a three-year, $21.4 million contract with the Oakland Athletics. During the 2003 and 2004 seasons, he made the American League All-Star team and posted a 21-9 record in ’03, just missing out on a CY-Young award as a member of the Chicago White Sox.
