For the first time in his career, Roy Halladay walked an opposing pitcher Tuesday, giving Josh Johnson a free pass with one out in the third inning in the game against the Marlins.
Johnson advanced to third on a Chris Coghlan double and then scored on a sac fly from Emilio Bonifacio.
Halladay, of course, only had to face pitchers in interleague play during his time with the Blue Jays. Still, he had taken on pitchers 87 times in his career. They were 12-for-80 with two doubles, six sac bunts and a sac fly against him, which was good for a .150/.148/.175 line.
KTAR News is reporting that Diamondbacks outfielder Yasmany Tomas was arrested on Thursday morning for driving faster than 100 MPH, according to the Arizona Department of Public Safety. He was charged with reckless driving and criminal speeding.
The maximum sentence for a criminal speeding charge is up to 30 days in jail and a fine up to $500. It is considered a Class 3 misdemeanor. Tomas may also have his license suspended.
A Diamondbacks spokesperson said, “We are very disappointed to learn of this news. We are still gathering facts, and will refrain from further comment at this time as this is a pending legal matter.”
Tomas, 27, signed a six-year, $68.5 million contract with the Diamondbacks in December 2014 as an amateur free agent out of Cuba. He has mostly disappointed, owning a .769 OPS while playing subpar defense in the outfield as well as at third base, where the club briefly tried him. He battled a groin injury for most of the past season and ultimately underwent core muscle surgery in August.
