CLEVELAND (AP) -- Indians outfielder Shin-Soo Choo has been charged with drunken driving.

The team said Choo was arrested early Monday in Sheffield Lake, Ohio. Choo traveled with the Indians and is with the team in Oakland, for the start of a six-game road trip against the A's and Los Angeles Angels.

In a statement, general manager Chris Antonetti said the team "takes these issues very seriously and we are disappointed in the matter."

Choo is arguably Cleveland's best all-around player. He batted .300 last season and was the only AL player to hit .300 with at least 20 homers and 20 steals. The 28-year-old entered Tuesday's game batting .250 with four homers and 15 RBIs.
