Former All-Star pitcher Esteban Loaiza is expected to change his plea from not guilty to guilty in his federal cocaine distribution case, Chuck Goudie and Ross Weidner of ABC7 Chicago report.

According to ABC7, Loaiza is scheduled to have a "Change of Plea" hearing on Friday, after originally pleading not guilty to charges of possession and transportation for sale of more than 10 kilograms (22 pounds) of cocaine, a cocaine base or heroin and using a false compartment to smuggle drugs.
