Biographical Information[edit]

In January 2009, Sergio Mitre was suspended for 50 games by Major League Baseball for a positive test for a banned substance. The California native said it was from an over-the-counter supplement he had purchased.

On May 10, 2010 ESPN Monday Night Baseball announcer Aaron Boone commented that while teammates with Sergio Mitre, opposing players routinely commented that Mitre's pitches were some of the most deceptive in the league.

On January 20, 2022, Mitre was sentenced to 40 to 60 years in prison after being convicted in Mexico for the rape and murder of his then-girlfriend's 22-month old daughter. He had been arrested in July 2020 while playing for the Saraperos de Saltillo in the Mexican League, initially for possession of marijuana, before being charged with the more serious offenses.
