elEsteban Loaiza appeared in court again.

His bail was set to $200,000 and is considered a flight risk because he was born in Mexico and he made around $43 million in his professional career. His attorney argued that he is broke and close to his family in the United States.

If Loaiza makes bail he’ll be confined to home detention with GPS monitoring, live in the southern district of California, and may only leave to approved locations such as church, school, or work.

The former baseball pitcher still faces a minimum of 10 years in jail if found guilty to the charges he’s accused of, according to the Federal sentencing guidelines.

His next court appearance is scheduled for April 5.
