Arizona Diamondbacks outfielder Yasmany Tomas was arrested in Phoenix on Thursday morning after police clocked him going 105 mph on a local freeway. He has been accused of reckless driving and criminal speeding.
Tomas was pulled over around 9:30 a.m. His 2015 Mercedes was impounded, and he was taken to a local jail. He was not found to be under the influence at the time.
The Diamondbacks issued a statement Thursday afternoon:
“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, who signed a six-year, $68 million contract with the Diamondbacks out of Cuba in 2014, sat out most of last year with groin and core injuries.
