Astros pitcher arrested at casino

Houston Astros pitcher Cesar Carrillo was arrested at the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel and Casino early Saturday morning.

Casino police charged Carrillo with trespassing after a warning at 3 a.m. Seminole Tribe spokesman Gary Bitner said Carrillo left the Tampa casino when initially warned but came back 15 minutes later, so officers detained him. Bitner declined to disclose what prompted the incident.

Carrillo, 26, was released from a Hillsborough County jail hours later after paying the $500 bail.

The Astros had no immediate comment on the incident. Carrillo was a first-round pick in the 2005 amateur draft and went 1-2 with a 13.06 ERA in three starts for the San Diego Padres in 2009. He signed with the Astros in September.
