Former top pick Hamilton suspended by MLB

Postby WebHamster » Wed Feb 18, 2004 3:00 am

New York, NY (Sports Network) - The tumultuous career of outfielder Josh Hamilton continued on its rocky path, as the Tampa Bay Devil Rays product was suspended and fined an undisclosed amount for violating the league's Joint Drug Treatment and Prevention Program.

The first overall pick of the 1999 draft, Hamilton will not be reinstated until March 19. Last season, the volatile minor leaguer suffered from a constant rash of injuries and took a personal leave toward the end of the season.

The 22-year-old Hamilton mysteriously left the Devil Rays organization last season, only to return to Double-A Orlando before his second baffling disappearance.
