January 19th, 2018

PHOENIX -- D-backs outfielder was arrested Thursday morning after being cited for allegedly driving 105 mph on the northbound Loop 101, according to a report by KTAR News.

Tomas, who was pulled over at 9:26 a.m. MST near Baseline Road on the 101, was charged with reckless driving and criminal speeding. He was not found to be impaired.

"We are very disappointed to learn of this news," the D-backs said in a statement. "We are still gathering facts, and will refrain from further comment at this time as this is a pending legal matter."

Criminal speeding is a Class 3 misdemeanor and is punishable by a maximum 30 days in jail and a fine of up to $500.

Tomas suffered through an injury-plagued season in 2017. He hit .241 in 47 games before abdominal injuries sidelined him. He underwent core surgery in August and had a follow-up procedure during the offseason.

D-backs general manager Mike Hazen previously had said that Tomas' injury rehab was on track to have him ready for Spring Training.
