DALLAS (CBSDFW.COM) – Grapevine Police have confirmed that Rangers catcher Geovany Soto was arrested Wednesday night in Grapevine on a marijuana possession charge.

Sergeant Robert Eberling says Soto has been charged with misdemeanor possession of marijuana under 2 ounces.

Soto, 31, was arrested during a traffic stop around 10 p.m. in the 3500 block of Ira E. Woods Avenue. He posted bail at $500 and is free.

Soto released the following statement through the team:

I was stopped by Grapevine Police on Wednesday night. I am embarrassed and would like to apologize to my family, the Rangers organization, and our fans that I was taken in on this charge. Because this is an ongoing case, I cannot discuss this matter any further at this time.”

Texas resigned the Puerto Rico native to a one-year deal worth roughly $3.05 million prior to the season.

He has not played in a game this season after suffering a tear to his right knee in March.

Soto has appeared in six rehab games and is expected to rejoin the team sometime after the All Star break.

In 54 games last season, Soto hit .245 with nine home runs and 22 RBIs.

The Rangers responded Friday.

“The Rangers organization is aware of Wednesday night’s incident involving Geovany Soto. We have spoken to Geovany, and he has apologized and expressed deep embarrassment for the situation. We have notified Major League Baseball of the incident. As this is an on-going case, this is the only comment we will have at this time.”
