The initial arrest warrant

Vázquez was arrested at 11 a.m. Tuesday in Pittsburgh and charged with "computer pornography, solicitation of a child and one count of providing obscene material to minors," according to the Florida Department of Law Enforcement (FDLE).

Additional charges

He faces four more charges in Westmoreland County, Pennsylvania, stemming from an offense on Aug. 1, 2018, according to court records — statutory sexual assault, unlawful contact with minor, corruption of minors and indecent assault of someone less than 16. The charges are not related to the case in Florida.

The investigation

The investigation into Vázquez, 28, began in August 2019 after the FDLE obtained information that Vazquez had a reported sexual relationship with a 13-year-old girl, who now lives in Lee County, Florida. According to the FDLE, "the victim, now 15 years of age, was continuing to have a relationship with Vazquez via text messaging and received a video in July from him in which he is shown performing a sex act. Additionally, Vazquez allegedly sent the victim text messages suggesting they would meet for sex after his baseball season was over."
