CLEARWATER, Fla. -- Phillies catcher Dane Sardinha was arrested by Clearwater Police for driving under the influence early Monday morning, a Pinellas County Sheriff’s Office spokesman said.

Sardinha, 30, was booked on the misdemeanor charge at 1:51 a.m. Monday and released from jail at 8:06 a.m. after posting a $250 bond. He was in the clubhouse this morning at Bright House Field and participated fully in the day’s workout, which began around 9:30 a.m.

A Phillies spokesman would not comment but did say the team is aware of the situation.

The four-year major league veteran was signed as a non-roster invitee by the Phillies on Jan. 7. He is one of seven catchers in camp. Sardinha is a native of Hawaii and played 12 games for the Detroit Tigers last season. He also spent time with the Cincinnati Reds.
