Reports: Hamilton Heading Back To Rangers


According to Alden Gonzalez of MLB.com, the Texas Rangers are close to re-acquiring former 2010 AL MVP outfielder Josh Hamilton.

Hamilton, who left Texas after the 2012 season to sign a five-year, $125 million deal, batted .305 with an on-base percentage of .363 and a slugging percentage of .549, has not played for the Angels due to a shoulder injury.

In his two years with the Angels, Hamilton has 31 home runs and 123 RBI’s

With a buyout clause of $83 million that runs through the 2017 season, Hamilton, who has a history of drug and alcohol abuse, had a relapse this past off-season.

According to Yahoo! Sports, Angels owner Artie Moreno voiced displeasure towards Hamilton after he won a grievance and avoided suspension for violating the MLB drug program.

The deal is expected to be officially announced on Monday.
