New York Yankees pitcher Michael Pineda was arrested early Monday morning for driving under the influence, reports the New York Post's Dan Mangan.

Pineda, who is out for the season after having shoulder surgery in April, "had a fixed gaze and his eyes were bloodshot, watery and glassy" when he was stopped in Tampa, Fla., according to the arresting officer's report. His blood-alcohol level was .128 and .125 in two tests, Mangan reports. He also reports Pineda was charged with DUI and released on bond.

The 23-year-old Pineda was acquired by New York in the offseason, but he has yet to throw a pitch for the team. He was solid as a rookie for the Mariners in 2011, posting a 9-10 record and 3.74 ERA in 28 starts.

But he reportedly came to spring training overweight and, then, injured his arm. His first season with the team has not lived up to expectations.
