The Phillies' seventh-round pick in last year's draft, Brody Colvin, was arrested early Sunday morning in Lafayette, La., on three misdemeanor charges.

Colvin, 19, was released without bail on counts of simple battery, disturbing the peace and resisting arrest, according to a spokesman from the Lafayette Parish Sheriff's Office. He was arrested at 1:31 a.m. on the 300 block of Jefferson St., an area with a popular nightlife, the spokesman said.

Colvin, a right-handed pitcher, fell to the Phillies in the seventh round (227th overall) because of concerns that he would choose his scholarship to Louisiana State over a professional contract. But he signed just before the deadline for a $900,000 bonus, which was the slot recommendation for the 35th overall pick. Baseball America had Colvin rated as the 43rd best prospect in the draft.

Because he signed late, he made just one appearance in the Gulf Coast League, a scoreless two-inning outing.
