Justin Sellers was arrested in West Sacramento on Saturday for allegedly evading police. He was pulled over doing "wheelies" on his motorcycle and subsequently led police on a short chase, according to a KCRA 3 TV report.
Sellers, who is still somehow on the 40-man roster, missed most of last season after injuring his back and, as a result, needing season-ending surgery.
According to a CBS 13 TV report, Sellers has done this before and was wanted by West Sacramento police.
This incident should expedite his removal from the roster, which will probably means an outright release from the team. At least, that's what it should mean. We'll see what the Dodgers' brass decides to do.
There really isn't a logical reason to keep Sellers on the 40-man roster. With the offseason additions, there is zero room for a guy who just isn't that good and is coming off a serious injury.
This isn't the worst crime ever (far from it), but Sellers was seemingly on proverbial thin ice already, so this is just a convenient excuse to cut ties with him altogether.
