Padres infielder Everth Cabrera was arrested Wednesday morning for driving under the influence of marijuana. TMZ reports:
A rep for the California Highway Patrol confirms … U.S. border patrol agents initially made contact with the 27-year-old near a checkpoint on the 94 Freeway around 12:30 AM.
We’re told the agents suspected something was wrong — and contacted the CHP to check things out.
After CHP arrived to the scene, deputies were convinced Cabrera was under the influence of marijuana and arrested him for DUI.
Cabrera has spent a lot of time on the disabled list this season, playing in only 90 games and posting a line of .232/.272/.300.
In 2012 he was charged with domestic violence in Arizona, but charges were ultimately dropped. Last year he was suspended for 50 games a result of his connection to the Biogenesis scandal. Maybe in 2015 he’ll have an uneventful year.
A doubleheader between the St. Louis Cardinals and Detroit Tigers this week is being postponed to allow more time for additional COVID-19 testing.
MLB opted to postpone Thursday’s doubleheader to continue additional testing while players and staff are quarantined before the team returns to play. More details about the Cardinals’ resumption of play will be announced later this week.
The Cardinals had a series against Pittsburgh set to start on Monday postponed after a weekend series against the Cubs was scrapped due to three positive coronavirus tests.
St. Louis had two more players and a staff member test positive for the virus on Friday and have had eight positive players overall, including star catcher Yadier Molina.
There have now been 29 games postponed by Major League Baseball because of coronavirus concerns. The Cardinals have not played since July 30 and have had 15 games scrapped.
Miami and Philadelphia each had seven games postponed earlier and have returned to the field since the disruptions.
