Red Sox reliever Bobby Jenks has had yet another setback in his comeback attempt…but this kind of setback is one that affects your life OFF the field too.

Jenks, 31, was arrested early Friday morning for driving under the influence, damaging property, and leaving the scene of the crash. The police report says Jenks admitted to taking “too many muscle relaxers.” He blew a .000 on the breathalyzer test, but failed a field sobriety test and was taken into custody.

He posted $4,250 bail and was released from jail after 8 a.m. Friday. He’s due back in court on April 9.

The Red Sox released a statement about the incident:

“We have been made aware of a situation regarding Bobby Jenks and take such matters seriously. We are gathering information and will refrain from further comment at this time.”

In 19 games this past season, Jenks had a career-worst 6.32 ERA and 2.23 WHIP. He had nearly disastrous back surgery in the offseason and there’s absolutely no timetable for his return…especially after his latest incident.
