Braves' Heath suspended after arrest

KISSIMMEE, Fla. -- The Atlanta Braves have suspended a minor league pitcher who was charged with two prostitution-related misdemeanors after a sting conducted not far from the team's spring training facility.

Right-hander Deunte Heath bonded out of jail Friday. Kissimmee police spokeswoman Stacie Miller said the 24-year-old Newton grad was arrested Thursday night when he allegedly responded to Internet prostitution ads and agreed to pay $75 for a sex act.

The Braves said Heath has been suspended indefinitely and sent home to Decatur while the club gathers details of his arrest. The team said it will have no further comment.
