Some possible trouble for former O’s farmhand

Vito Frabizio, who in 2009 appeared to be an up-and-coming young pitcher in the Orioles farm system, could be in some trouble.

According to this story that Keith Law linked to his Twitter account today, Frabizio was arrested in the New York area for his part in a bank robbery.

The right-hander went 4-4 with a 2.96 ERA in 12 starts for Rookie League Bluefield in 2009, but never made a roster last summer and was released by the Orioles in June.

I wrote this profile on Frabizio in January 2010 and really enjoyed talking with him. I haven’t met too many players so excited to be playing pro ball and with high hopes for the future.
