File this under one of the weirdest stories you'll hear during the 2019 MLB season.
San Diego Padres pitcher Jacob Nix has been charged with criminal trespassing after he tried breaking into a home in Arizona...through a doggie door.
Whatever shady business Nix was looking to conduct on the evening of Oct. 6 was cut short when the homeowner kicked the third-round draft pick in the face and tased him in the back.
What in the world is happening?
No more Jacob Nix at the Arizona Fall League, Padres fans.
The organization has since released a statement on the matter.
Nix made nine starts with San Diego in 2018 and recorded a 7.02 ERA before suffering a ligament tear in his elbow in March. Rather than getting surgery, Nix went through rehab and returned to action in late July in the minor leagues.
Now, his future in San Diego is murky beyond just his injury troubles.
