Seth Romero, a left-handed pitcher for the Washington Nationals, was arrested Friday morning on a charge of driving while intoxicated in Sweeny, Tex., according to online jail records for the Brazoria County Sheriff’s Office.

Romero, 25, is a native of West Columbia, a city in Brazoria County, Tex. He was released on a $5,000 bond, according to the jail record and a person with knowledge of the situation. Since he was drafted by the Nationals in the first round out of the University of Houston in 2017, Romero has three big league appearances and finished last season with the Class AAA Rochester Red Wings, a step away from the majors.

Attempts to reach Romero on Friday were not successful. Brazoria County did not immediately release the arrest record upon request, saying that it could take up to 10 business days.

“We are aware of the incident involving Seth Romero,” a Nationals spokeswoman said in a statement to The Washington Post on Friday. “We are working to gather more information and will refrain from making further comments at this time.”

With Major League Baseball in a lockout, Nationals officials are unable to have contact with Romero or any other players on the 40-man roster. That also means the Nationals cannot discipline Romero until the work stoppage ends, should they wish to, or make any decisions regarding his status with the organization.
