Loaiza, 46, was being held on Monday on charges of felony possession of more than 44 pounds of drugs and two felony counts of transporting and possessing narcotics with intent to sell, jail records obtained by FOX5 San Diego stated. He's scheduled to appear in court on Wednesday. Loaiza's first stint in Chicago came from 2003-2004 with his best major league season coming in his first with the White Sox.
Loaiza pitched for eight teams over 14 seasons in the majors, including parts of three seasons with the White Sox.
Loaiza came in second after voting for the American League Cy Young award. The market value of the drugs was estimated to be $500,000. That provided enough probable cause for officers to seek a search warrant to look in his home, which he leased in early February.
