TAMPA, Fla. (AP) Authorities say a former personal assistant for Major League pitcher Bronson Arroyo fraudulently sold Arroyo's yacht in Florida.

The Florida Department of Law Enforcement reports 38-year-old Anthony Acosta was arrested Monday in Tampa and charged with grand theft and forgery.

Authorities say Acosta sold Arroyo's vessel - valued at approximately $167,000 - for $22,000 in July 2013. He had been fired in 2012.

Authorities say the new owners attempted to get their money back after discovering a lien on the boat. Officials say Arroyo learned about the sale when the new owners contacted him following their dispute with Acosta.

Acosta was jailed with bond set at $50,000. Jail records didn't list an attorney.

Arroyo spent eight years with the Cincinnati Reds and is currently with the Los Angeles Dodgers.
