Matt Bush Placed On Restricted List After DUI Arrest

The troubles keep coming for Rays pitcher Matt Bush, who was placed on the team's Restricted List Friday, which takes him off of the team's active and 40-man rosters.

The move comes from Bush being charged with DUI and hit and run after he struck a 72-year-old motorcyclist Anthony Tufano on March 22 while driving a car he borrowed from teammate Brandon Guyer. Tufano is currently in a coma.

Bush, the No. 1 pick of the 2004 MLB Draft, has had numerous troubles with the law during his career including an alleged drunken assault at a San Diego high school in 2009 that was caught on camera, and an assault arrest in 2004 stemming from a fight he had with security at an Arizona bar. He has never played a game in the MLB.
