Details of Pittsburgh Pirates closer Felipe Vazquez’s alleged solicitation of a minor continue to get more disturbing.
Four more charges were filed against Vazquez on Tuesday after police in Pennsylvania spoke to the alleged victim. She told police that she first met Vazquez in the PNC Park bullpen at the age of 13, which led to them communicating via texts and other apps.

Vazquez had already been charged in Florida for soliciting a minor, providing obscene material to minors, and computer pornography. It’s only logical that he would face further charges in Pennsylvania if illegal behavior occurred there.
Vazquez, who had 28 saves this season, has already been placed on MLB’s restricted list.
