Colorado Rockies pitcher Alex White was arrested and briefly jailed last night on suspicion of drunk driving, according to the Associated Press.

White was arrested Saturday in Arizona, where the Rockies are holding spring training. He reported to camp Sunday, spoke with team management and apologized to his teammates. The Rockies say White understands he made a mistake and knows the embarrassment he's caused. White, 23, is vying for a spot in the Rockies' rotation this season. He went 2-4 with an 8.42 ERA in seven starts last year.
