Esteban Loaiza reportedly got popped with 44 pounds of heroin and cocaine.

The Tijuana, Mexico, native was held on $200,000 bail and is set to face the felony drug charges in court Wednesday.

Loaiza was also arrested for driving while intoxicated in 2006.

It was not immediately known if Loaiza has hired a lawyer.

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.

According to information that has been released by the San Diego County Sheriff's Department, Loaiza was targeted as part of a drug-smuggling sting by the Border Crime Suppression Team.

Loaiza, the second-winningest pitcher from Mexico in Major League Baseball history, played for 8 different teams in his career - earning over $43 million.

Loaiza, 46, is jailed on charges of suspected possession of heroin and cocaine over 20 kilograms, possession of narcotics for sale, and possession and transportation of narcotics for sale. He said that Loaiza had called his office early last week but Boggs was unavailable at the time.

Loiaza pitched in the majors for 14 seasons with seven teams and placed second in the 2003 American League Cy Young voting with the Chicago White Sox.

Boggs says he was "shocked and saddened" and "had no indication he would ever be in this type of situation". The estimated street value of the drugs is $500,000.

As a 35-year-old, Loaiza started five games for the Dodgers in 2007, going 1-4 with an 8.34 earned run average.

Loaiza was married to famed singer Jenni Rivera, who died in a 2012 plane crash. He reportedly made nearly $44 million in his professional ball career.
