Right-hander Bobby Jenks was checked into rehab when the Red Sox released him last summer, reports Evan Drellich of MassLive.com. He was in the middle of a 45-day stay at Cliffside Malibu, a luxury rehab clinic in Southern California.

Jenks, 32, was arrested on charges of DUI and hit-and-run in Florida on March 23 of last year. He told police he "took too many muscle relaxers," then agreed to take a field sobriety test before saying "I'm going to fail it."

The Red Sox reached a settlement with Jenks and released him on July 3, two weeks before he finished rehab, according to court documents. The DUI charges were settled in December, and Jenks was required to complete a substance-abuse program as part of his probation.

"Mr. Jenks satisfactorily completed a 45-day stay for substance dependence," wrote Patricia Freebery, the clinical director of Cliffside Malibu, in a letter submitted to the Lee County, Fla., probation department in December.
