Padres pitcher Jacob Nix arrested

A pitcher for the San Diego Padres was kicked and tased after a Peoria homeowner found him trespassing in his home

According to news reports, the 23-year-old Nix entered a home through a doggie door and was confronted by the homeowner.

Per reports Thursday, a pitcher for the San Diego Padres was recently arrested after trying to crawl through the doggy door of someone else's home.

A homeowner in Peoria, Az. caught the 6-foot-4, 220-pound RHP entering his house through the dog door around 3:30 a.m. on October 6. Padres minor league pitcher Tom Cosgrove was with Nix and reached through the doggy door to help pull him from the resident.

As Nix and Cosgrove began to flee, the homeowner leaned out of the dog door and fired a Taser, striking Nix in the back.

Police located and arrested the pair a few streets away.

The San Diego Padres released a statement in light of the incident.

Nix, a third-round draft pick in 2015, went 2-5 with a 7.02 ERA in nine starts for the Padres in 2018.

The Padres organization is aware of the incident and is in communication with the Commissioner's Office and local authorities.

He was supposed to play for the team again this year but tore his UCL in his elbow and has been undergoing plasma treatments and rehabilitation and pitched six games in the minor league this season. Due to the ongoing legal proceedings, we will not have any further comment at this time.

Cosgrove, 23, was selected by the Padres in the 12th round of the 2017 Major League Baseball draft.

Jacob Nix notched a 7.04 ERA in nine appearances for the Padres past year.

Nix is now playing for the Peoria Javelinas, an Arizona Fall League team.
