Former Major League Baseball outfielder Juan Encarnacion is in custody for sexually assaulting his daughter in the Dominican Republic, according to a report.
The two-time World Series champion is being held without bail in his homeland, ESPN said.
The 45-year-old former baseball journeyman was accused of entering his daughter’s room in May while she slept, then assaulting her, the girl’s mother claimed to authorities.
Encarnacion had a decade-long career in the majors, and was part of championship teams with the Florida Marlins and St. Louis Cardinals.
Encarnacion, who also played for Detroit and Cincinnati, was being held at the Palace of Justice in Santo Domingo and was expected to appear in front of a judge Saturday, ESPN noted. He faces 15 years in prison if convicted.
