VENTURA (AP) — A Ventura County home owned by former New York Mets and Philadelphia Phillies outfielder Lenny Dykstra is facing foreclosure and could be sold next month.

The Ventura County Star says a judge has blocked the sale of the Lake Sherwood home until June 26. In court papers, Dykstra says his estranged wife, Terri, and 15-year-old son live there and have no place to go if it’s sold.

Another Lake Sherwood home that Dykstra bought in 2007 for $17.5 million was auctioned last fall for about $760,000.

Dykstra’s living in Los Angeles while he fights federal bankruptcy fraud charges. An indictment contends that after filing in 2009, Dykstra sold more than $400,000 worth of property without permission from a trustee.

He faces up to five years in prison if convicted.
