Prospect Colvin Arrested & Wassup Around the Bloggerhood

Phillies pitching prospect Brody Colvin was arrested late Saturday night on misdemeanor charges. The 19-year-old 2009 draft pick was charged with disturbing the peace, simple battery and resisting an officer when he was arrested late Saturday night in a bar district in his hometown of Lafayette, La.

Colvin was released and is scheduled to return for a court appearance on April 1st. The complete arrest report is not expected to be available for 5-10 business days.

Colvin, a righty pitcher, was a 7th round pick in the 2009 amateur draft and pitched in one game for the Gulf Coast League Phillies last year before being sent to the Florida Instructional League. Colvin was regarded as an early round talent prior to the draft, but dropped to round 7 because he was expected to attend college and not turn pro. The Phillies were able to sign Colvin shortly before the August deadline last year.
