Report: Josh Hamilton decision could come 'in weeks'
by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

A verdict on a potential Josh Hamilton suspension could come "in weeks," Jeff Fletcher of the Orange County Register reports Friday. A report surfaced Thursday that that the Angels outfielder is expected to suspended at least 25 games by Major League Baseball.

Hamilton met with MLB officials on Wednesday and confessed to going on a binge that involved cocaine and alcohol a couple of months ago. Hamilton will meet with a four-doctor panel where they will determine the best course of action for the embattled slugger. The case could then go to an arbitrator, following by the commissioner.

"We have a lot of things on our plate that we have to take care of," manager Mike Scioscia said. "(The Hamilton case) is going to happen in it's own time, and we can't let it affect us."

Hamilton was already expected to miss the beginning of the season due to a shoulder surgery. It's unclear how much longer he'll be out due to a suspension.

Report: Angels' Hamilton likely to receive suspension
by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com

Angels outfielder Josh Hamilton will likely be suspended for at least 25 games, according to FoxSports.com.

Hamilton met with Major League Baseball on Wednesday for a disciplinary hearing. CBSSports.com Baseball Insider Jon Heyman reported that Hamilton experienced a drug relapse a few months ago, and confessed that relapse to MLB. 

This is technically Hamilton's second violation as a major-leaguer. Hamilton was on the Rays 40-man roster during his first suspension, making him a major-league player. Typically, players who violate their drug treatment program for the first time are subject to a 15-25 game suspension. Given that this is Hamilton's second violation of his drug treatment program, it's unclear how severe the punishment will be.

With that said, commissioner Rob Manfred is reportedly trying to be lenient with any punishment. The league has a "favorable view of Hamilton's efforts to remain sober." Since his return to the majors, Hamilton has spoken honestly about his struggles with addiction.

On top of that, Manfred is concerned about making the punishment too harsh. Hamilton's past relaspes have come when he's been away from the game. Manfred reportedly is not close to making a final decision on Hamilton's punishment at this time. 

Hamilton was already expected to miss the beginning of the season due to a shoulder surgery. It's unclear how much longer he'll be out due to a suspension.

Report: Angels' Hamilton won't receive a ruling on Thursday
by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com

Major League Baseball will not announce a possible suspension for Angels outfielder Josh Hamilton on Thursday, according to FoxSports.com.


Hamilton met with the league for a disciplinary hearing on Wednesday. CBSSports.com Baseball Insider Jon Heyman reported that Hamilton relapsed a few months ago, and told MLB about his relapse. It's not clear how Hamilton will be treated given his history with drugs and alcohol. Hamilton is technically a first-time offender since his past suspensions happened when he was a minor-leaguer, but it appears it will be up to commissioner Rob Manfred will make the decision about a possible Hamilton suspension.

The 33-year-old Hamilton was already sidelined after having offseason surgery. He hit .263/.331/.414 over 338 at-bats last year.

Hamilton's mentor, friend: 'His baseball career should be over'
by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

Roy Silver, a friend and mentor responsible for helping Josh Hamilton get his career back on track after the embattled Angels outfielder missed the 2002-2006 seasons while recovering from drug addiction, suggested that Hamilton should call it a career to focus on getting his life in order.

"His life isn't over, but his baseball career should be," Silver said in a phone interview with Bob Nightengale of USA Today.

Hamilton met with MLB officials on Wednesday and confessed to going on a binge that involved cocaine and alcohol a couple of months ago. At this point, it's uncertain if Hamilton has failed a drug test.

"I'm not shocked or surprised,'' Silver said. "People don't understand that this hasn't been easy for him. I knew something was not right for the last couple of months. The fact that he's turning himself in is a sign that he got tired of the same old spin cycle. He's trying to get well.

"He needs to get down and dirty with himself.''

Although his previous issues occurred in the minors, it's unlikely that Hamilton will be treated strictly as a first-time offender for his relapse. First-time offenders in the MLB are put into a program and subject to increase testing. Hamilton, however, is already tested three times per week.

At this point, the Angels are unsure what to expect from Hamilton, who is due $25.4 million this season, and $32.4 million in 2016 and 2017.

"We're going to take one step at a time," manager Mike Scioscia said. "There is no sense in getting too far out in front because information is still evolving."

Report: Josh Hamilton meeting with MLB over 'disciplinary issue'
by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

Angels outfielder Josh Hamilton is scheduled to meet MLB officials on Wednesday to discuss a "disciplinary issue," and the club is fearing a possible punishment, the Los Angeles Times reports.

General manager Jerry Dipoto confirmed that Hamilton is in New York, but wouldn't reveal if he was involved in a disciplinary issue or when they expect him back. Outside of his disciplinary issues, Hamilton underwent surgery on his right shoulder in February which will keep him sidelined until May. He has been rehabbing in Houston and does not have a locker room in the club's spring training clubhouse in Arizona.

"I can say that Josh is going to meet with league officials in New York," Dipoto told the paper. "At this point I have no other information to offer."

When FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal asked an unnamed baseball executive if Hamilton's disciplinary issue was for performance-enhancing drugs, his response was "worse." The executive declined to elaborate on the extent of Hamilton's issues.
