When he was playing, he had a pretty rough time with the Indians this year as their closer. Now, to make matters worse, he has been arrested for drug possession.

This is obviously a much different drug issue than the recent PED issue that baseball is addressing, but it should be interesting to see how they handle this. Will Perez face any type of punishment from Major League Baseball? Will the charges even stick at all?

It has been an up and down season for Perez, with more downs than ups, and hopefully he can rebound from this and get himself straightened out soon.
