Officers said he was going 71 mph in a 45 mph zone early Monday. Police said Vizcaino's eyes were glassy and bloodshot and he smelled of alcohol, with a blood-alcohol level just over the legal limit.

The Rockies said they were "extremely disappointed" and have been in contact with the player and his representatives.

"We understand that they are working through the issues with local authorities and that Luis clearly understands the seriousness of the situation," the team said.

Vizcaino, who lives in Florida, was 1-2 this season with a 5.28 ERA.
