Atlanta Braves relief pitcher Cristhian Martinez was arrested on charges of DUI early Monday morning in Gwinnett County, according to David O'Brien of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution.
Along with DUI, Martinez was charged with improper lane change and impeding the flow of traffic. He was booked into the Gwinnett County jail at 4:24 a.m., according to O'Brien.
He was in Gwinnett to prepare for Tuesday's exhibition game against the Braves top minor league prospects.
A strong spring had landed Martinez a spot again in the Braves bullpen. The 30-year-old right hander registered 13 innings in spring training, allowing two runs and striking out 13 batters.
Martinez is about to enter his third season with Atlanta and posted a 3.36 ERA in 46 appearances for the Braves in 2011.
