Baltimore Orioles reliever Miguel Castro says he was robbed at gunpoint in his native Dominican Republic.

In a post in Spanish to Instagram, Castro wrote that he was attacked by two people who robbed him of his chain.

"Thank God that their gun got jammed," a translation of the post read. "I'm alive by the mercy of God.

"This has to stop. They took my chain and they wanted to kill me. It's unbelievable, I was at a training field trying to help those who want to make it to the big leagues and these two guys jumped on me to take my chain with also the intention of putting a bullet in me. This has to stop."
