    Former Yankee second baseman Chuck Knoblauch has been charged with assaulting his common-law wife.

    A judge set Knoblauch's bond at $10,000 after he appeared a Texas in court Tuesday.

    According to a criminal complaint, Knoblauch's wife told police he hit her in the face and then choked her at their West Houston home on Friday.

    Knoblauch's attorney did not immediately return a telephone call Tuesday.

    The 41-year-old former infielder is a Houston native and a four-time All-Star who played for the New York Yankees, Minnesota Twins and Kansas City Royals from 1991-02.

    Knoblauch was one of more than 80 players who were accused of using performance-enhancing drugs in the 2007 Mitchell Report on baseball's steroids era, and he later acknowledged using performance enhancers.
