Pirates pitcher Felipe Vazquez faces 21 new child sex-related charges

Suspended Pittsburgh Pirates relief pitcher Felipe Vazquez is facing 21 new charges after investigators found evidence of child pornography on devices they say Vazquez owned.

The new charges filed Tuesday include 10 counts of child pornography, 10 counts of unlawful contact with a minor and a single charge of corruption of minors.

Vazquez already was facing criminal charges that he had sexual contact with a teenage girl in Scottdale. Florida prosecutors requested to have Vazquez extradited to Lee County, near Fort Myers, where he was charged in August with sex crimes involving the same accuser, but a judge denied extradition.

Felipe Vazquez Arrested

This doesn’t sound good.

In a stunning and deeply troubling turn of events, Pirates pitcher Felipe Vazquez has been arrested and charged with a series of crimes in the state of Florida, according to James Santelli of CBS Pittsburgh. Vazquez, a resident of Florida, is in custody after being arrested today in Pennsylvania.

The underlying behavior alleged is exceedingly disturbing. Allegations involve an online relationship with a child, with charges including computer pornography, solicitation, and providing obscene materials to a minor. From other publicly released materials, it appears that other charges relating to the unlawful relationship with a child could also be filed.

Pirates pitcher Crick has surgery after altercation

SAN FRANCISCO—Pirates right-hander Kyle Crick required season-ending surgery on the index finger of his pitching hand after he was injured in a clubhouse fight with fellow reliever Felipe Vazquez.

Crick said punches were thrown and the first punch was thrown by Vazquez, who declined to speak to reporters after Pittsburgh’s 5-4 loss to the Giants.

“One of those clubhouse altercations. A lot of bickering back and forth. Punches were thrown,” Crick said. “You kind of have to at some point stand up for yourself and start throwing back. It’s one of those deals where it’s unfortunate. It’s two losers in this deal. Nobody can win fighting a teammate. It’s just an unfortunate deal.”

Both players were fined undisclosed amounts by the Pirates for violating their contracts.

The sort of account of a fight that raises more questions than it actually answers.

LEADING OFF: Trade talks heat up, Nats host 1st-place Braves

A look at what’s happening around the majors today:

TRADEWINDS

Only eight games on the schedule, giving contending teams more time to talk about trades. The fourth-place Mets acquired Toronto ace Marcus Stroman for two minor league pitching prospects Sunday and the Rays made three deals, getting .300-hitting Eric Sogard from the Blue Jays.

The Yankees are in the market for a top starting pitcher — Mets star Noah Syndergaard is available, and San Diego is interested. Relievers are always in demand, with Pittsburgh lefty Felipe Vazquez attracting attention.
