Los Angeles Angels outfielder Josh Hamilton still has yet to see the baseball field in 2015, and he may never see it again with the Angels.
The troubled star has had a long fall from grace since leaving the Texas Rangers, and he was recently discovered to have relapsed on cocaine and alcohol.
Hamilton hit 142 home runs in five seasons with the Rangers before he only hit 31 in two seasons with the Angels.
The Angels still owe him $83 million over the remaining three years of his contract though. The team is attempting to part ways with him though, and Hamilton himself sold his home in Newport Beach, Calif.
If it’s possible, the Angels may trade Hamilton and eat a chunk of his contract. Another option for them is to buy out Hamilton’s contract although the MLB Players Association would likely frown upon it.
Although Hamilton’s teammates have supported him, Angels owner Arte Moreno would not promise that Hamilton will play for the team again, indicating that he wants the team to move on from him.
The Angels offense has been able to function well without Hamilton, so moving on from him would not be a surprise if both sides can come to an agreement.
