Angels | Josh Hamilton going through divorce

Mon, 20 Apr 2015 09:16:27 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim OF Josh Hamilton is in the process of divorcing his wife, Katie, according to documents filed in north Texas. Hamilton has had problems with substance abuse and self-reported a relapse earlier this year. Hamilton isn't allowed to see his children without supervision, according to court records, and he's also prohibited from going to the couple's properties in Texas and California.

Fantasy Tip: It's a very tumultuous time in Hamilton's ($2,200, 4.4% of cap) life yet again, and there's a good chance he may not play at all for the Angels this year. Not only is he trying to cope with a relapse and a divorce, but he's rehabbing his way back from shoulder surgery earlier this year. There's no reason to stash him in shallow mixed leagues.

Angels | Josh Hamilton in great shape

Fri, 17 Apr 2015 15:50:08 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim OF Josh Hamilton (shoulder) reportedly is in great shape while he rehabs from shoulder surgery earlier this year. He weighs 250 pounds and is in good spirits. SP C.J. Wilson, one of Hamilton's close friends, said Hamilton is "100%" ready to play baseball. "It's my 100% opinion that Josh is not a risk to himself or anybody else," Wilson added. "That's what I feel having known him for eight years. That's the closest thing I can get to a factual opinion."

Fantasy Tip: Hamilton ($2,200, 4.4% of cap) still has a ways to go in his rehab, and that's completely aside from his situation involving a relapse from substance abuse. It could get messy between Hamilton and the Angels organization, and it's hazy as to whether he'll even play again this season. If you don't have the room in shallow standard leagues, we wouldn't fault you for dropping him.

Angels | Scioscia worried about Josh Hamilton

Fri, 17 Apr 2015 10:49:50 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim OF Josh Hamilton (shoulder) met with manager Mike Scioscia, and the manager felt "frustration" that Hamilton isn't getting enough support after going through a relapse of substance abuse. Hamilton hasn't been with the team all year as he rehabs from shoulder surgery. He has been swinging a bat for several weeks, and his rehab is going well.

Fantasy Tip: Hamilton ($2,200, 4.4% of cap) may very well sit out for most, if not all, of the 2015 season because of his substance-abuse situation that could get messy with the Angels. In shallow mixed leagues, you shouldn't feel compelled to continue stashing him, unless you're using him in a DL slot for the time being.

Angels | Josh Hamilton done with Angels?

Mon, 13 Apr 2015 09:04:03 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim OF Josh Hamilton (shoulder) may never play for the team again after his latest relapse into substance abuse, owner Arte Moreno said. Moreno also said Hamilton's contract contains language protecting the team against a relapse, which has contradicted earlier statements by the owner. The Major League Baseball Players Association also denied Moreno's claims. Hamilton has three years and $83 million left on his current contract.

Fantasy Tip: Hamilton ($2,200, 4.4% of cap) won't be ready to play at least until next month because of shoulder surgery earlier this year. He's an extremely risky fantasy commodity in 2015, because it's uncertain whether he'll play at all this year. In AL-only and very deep mixed leagues, he's worth stashing, but don't expect much from him this season.

Angels | Josh Hamilton will have help

Fri, 03 Apr 2015 15:38:29 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim OF Josh Hamilton (shoulder) will reunite with his 2013 accountability partner Shayne Kelley, who will return to the Angels.

Fantasy Tip: Hamilton is worth stashing in a DL slot, however there is no guarantee he'll play in 2015. The Angels are seriously concerned about his conduct, health and behavior, and he'll likely enter rehab at some point during the season. It might be best to consider any contributions from Hamilton as a bonus, because it appears risky to count on him in 2015, at this point.

Angels | Halos concerned with Josh Hamilton

Fri, 03 Apr 2015 09:44:45 -0700

Updating a previous report, Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim OF Josh Hamilton (shoulder) isn't expected to be back on the field soon, as the Angels announced that they are planning to do everything in their power to get Hamilton some help for his drug-related issues.

Fantasy Tip: The Angels made it clear in their statement that they weren't happy with the ruling that Hamilton won't be disciplined for his actions, as they believe there are serious concerns about his conduct, health and behavior. That likely means that they'll require Hamilton enter rehab at some point this year. Hamilton was already scheduled to miss at least the first month of the season with a shoulder injury, and it's hard to say when he'll be back on the field in 2015. Continue to stash him in a DL spot, but it very well could be a lost season for Hamilton.

Angels | Josh Hamilton won't be suspended

Fri, 03 Apr 2015 09:23:48 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim OF Josh Hamilton (shoulder) will not be disciplined by the league for violating his drug treatment program, an arbitrator ruled Friday, April 3. However, MLB said that they disagreed with the decision. Hamilton self-reported a violation this year involving both a drug of abuse and alcohol, according to a person familiar with the case.

Fantasy Tip: Hamilton won't be available at FantasyScore to start the year, and he's expected to be out at least a month after having shoulder surgery earlier this year. Plus, there's a chance he'll still enter rehab for his drug issues, making him a very risky fantasy option. Stash Hamilton in a DL spot for now in deep mixed and AL-only leagues.

Angels | Josh Hamilton decision coming before OD

Mon, 23 Mar 2015 09:03:21 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim OF Josh Hamilton is expected to have a decision handed down on him by commissioner Rob Manfred by opening day on a possible suspension. Manfred said that "we are working toward a result" in the wake of Hamilton's relapse on a drug of abuse. Hamilton is also recovering from shoulder surgery, and his status for opening day was already in question.

Fantasy Tip: Hamilton is expected to receive a suspension somewhere around 25 games for his relapse. His shoulder ailment was already expected to keep him out for around the first two months of the season, too, so he's an extremely risky fantasy baseball commodity. Avoiding him entirely might be the best strategy in standard 12-team mixed leagues.
