Former MLB players Luis Castillo and Octavio Dotel have been arrested for their alleged involvement in a drug trafficking and money laundering network, according to a report.

Dotel was said to have been arrested during raids by Dominican authorities.

Dotel, 45, pitched for 15 years in MLB, mostly as a reliever. He was 59-50 with a 3.78 ERA and 109 saves during his career. He won a World Series with the Cardinals in 2011.

Castillo, 43, was a second baseman who spent 10 years with the Marlins, making three All-Star teams. He led the league in stolen bases twice.
