The journeyman had his best year with the White Sox in 2003, when he went 21-9 with a 2.90 ERA and was the American League's starting pitcher in that year's All-Star game held at his home park, U.S. Cellular Field in Chicago.

He was detained at South Bay Detention Facility in Chula Vista on $200,000 bail.

Police arrested former All-Star pitcher Esteban Loaiza after allegedly finding an estimated $500,000 worth of suspected cocaine at a home he was leasing in Southern California.

When police searched the vehicle, they found a "sophisticated compartment used to hide contraband", which led them to obtain a search warrant for Loiaza's rental home where they found the packages of drugs. In addition to the possession charge, Loaiza was also charged with two counts of transporting and possessing narcotics to sell.

Earlier today, former Yankees right-hander Esteban Loaiza was arrested in San Diego with almost 50 pounds of cocaine and heroin. He's scheduled to appear in court on Wednesday.
