PHOENIX (AP) -Arizona Diamondbacks rookie infielder Alberto Callaspo was arrested Thursday on charges for assaulting his wife.
Callaspo, 24, was taken into custody on suspicion of assault and criminal damage, according to police who did not release any details. He still was being interviewed by detectives late Thursday.
Police officers responded to a call at Callaspo's home about noon Thursday and said the player's 22-year-old wife, Marianny Paola, had minor injuries.
Callaspo did not accompany the team on its flight to Houston, where the Diamondbacks begin a nine-game road trip Friday night.
``We do not feel that he should be with the team due to the allegations,'' Diamondbacks president Derrick Hall said.
Hall said the Diamondbacks were gathering facts about Callaspo's arrest to ``determine what exactly took place and what further action is needed, if any.''
Callaspo, a utilityman who is hitting .215 this season, could possibly be suspended, put on the restricted list or optioned to Triple-A Tucson.
