Josh Hamilton Files for Divorce from Wife

Josh Hamilton Files for Divorce from WifeRonald Martinez/Getty Images(DALLAS) -- Angels slugger Josh Hamilton is in the process of getting divorced from his wife, Katie, according to court documents filed in North Texas. The divorce petition was filed in February in Tarrant County, where Hamilton played five seasons with the Texas Rangers. The petition doesn't detail the couple's problems, but it cites conflict between them as a reason for the divorce. Hamilton has a long history of substance abuse problems and earlier this year he self-reported a relapse. Hamilton outlined 34 requests in the petition. Among the requests: prohibiting his wife from using a Maserati and 1972 Chevrolet Blazer in his possession; prohibiting her from "hiding" the children from him; prohibiting her from making disparaging remarks against him or his family. Angels manager Mike Scioscia met with Hamilton last week for the first time in months, and he said he isn't sure when the star will return to the team. Hamilton is not being disciplined by Major League Baseball for his relapse. Follow @ABCNewsRadio Copyright © 2015, ABC Radio. All rights reserved.

Josh Hamilton’s Future with the Angels in Doubt

Josh Hamilton’s Future with the Angels in Doubt Ronald Martinez/Getty Images(ANAHEIM, Calif.) -- Even though Major League Baseball will not discipline outfielder Josh Hamilton for his latest relapse into substance abuse, his future with the club is cloudy at best. Angels' owner Arte Moreno stated that Hamilton's contract contains certain language that protects the team against a relapse by Hamilton. According to the player's union, no such language exists. "To the contrary, the collectively bargained provisions of the [Joint Drug Agreement] and the Basic Agreement supersede all other player contract provisions and explicitly prevent clubs from exactly the type of action Mr. Moreno alluded to,'' the MLBPA said in a statement. Reporters asked Moreno on Friday night whether Hamilton definitely would play again for the team. Moreno's response was "I will not say that.'' Hamilton has three years left on his current contract that will pay him $83 million. "It's not about money," Moreno said. "Nothing about money." The former American League MVP has battled addiction going back to his time with the Tampa Bay Devil Rays. He overcame his dependency to become one of baseball best hitters, but he hasn't produced during his time in Los Angels and his latest relapse has his playing career in doubt.

Angels Say Josh Hamilton Facing Discipline from MLB

Angels Say Josh Hamilton Facing Discipline from MLB Ronald Martinez/Getty Images(NEW YORK) -- Los Angeles Angels outfielder Josh Hamilton was scheduled to meet with MLB officials on Wednesday in regards to a disciplinary issue. Hamilton is expected to be out until May due to a recent shoulder surgery and he has not participated in the team's spring training in Arizona.  He's also been advised to stay at a friend's house in Houston while rehabbing from the surgery. Hamilton was suspended from February 2004 to June 2006 due to issues related with cocaine and alcohol addiction.  He also had alcohol relapses in 2009 and 2012, but bounced back, leading the Rangers to back-to-back World Series appearances -- and he won the AL MVP award in 2010. Hamilton signed a five-year deal with the Angels prior to the 2013 season. Follow @ABCNewsRadio Copyright © 2015, ABC Radio. All rights reserved.  

Angels’ Josh Hamilton Could Miss More Time than Expected

Angels’ Josh Hamilton Could Miss More Time than Expected Ronald Martinez/Getty Images(NEW YORK) -- After originally being expected to miss six to eight weeks after undergoing shoulder surgery, it turns out that Los Angeles Angels outfielder Josh Hamilton could miss even more time than previously thought. "It could be six to eight weeks, it could be as much as 12 weeks," Angels general manager Jerry Dipoto told The Los Angeles Times. "He had a bone shaved down to create less friction in an arthritic shoulder. Until he gets on site and on the field, it's tough to determine how long it will take." Prior to the start of the 2013 season, Hamilton signed a five-year, $125-million contract with the team. Despite the lofty contract, he has yet to live up to the deal. "Surgery is always complicated," Manager Mike Scioscia told the paper. "We have to take it one step at a time and make sure he's ready to go before we start to project when he can do some of the things he used to do." The 33-year-old Hamilton played in just 89 games last year and batted .263 with 10 home runs and 44 RBIs. Follow @ABCNewsRadio Copyright © 2015, ABC Radio. All rights reserved.

Report: L.A. Angels Avoid Arbitration with OF Matt Joyce

Report: L.A. Angels Avoid Arbitration with OF Matt Joyce iStockphoto/Thinkstock(LOS ANGELES) -- The Los Angeles Angels and outfielder Matt Joyce avoided arbitration by agreeing to a one-year contract worth $4.75 million, according to the Los Angeles Times. The Angels acquired Joyce from the Rays on Dec. 16 for right-handed reliever Kevin Jepsen. In 140 games with Tampa Bay last season, he batted .254 with nine home runs and 52 RBIs. The 30-year-old also scored 51 runs and had an on-base percentage of .349. Joyce was selected out of Florida Southern College by the Tigers in the 12th round of the 2005 amateur draft. He made his major league debut with Detroit in 2008. Joyce was named to the American League All-Star team in 2011. Follow @ABCNewsRadio Copyright © 2015, ABC Radio. All rights reserved.

Dodgers Trade Dee Gordon to the Marlins, Acquire Howie Kendrick from Angels

Dodgers Trade Dee Gordon to the Marlins, Acquire Howie Kendrick from Angels BananaStock/Thinkstock(SAN DIEGO) -- The Los Angeles Dodgers are in the middle of a complete overhaul as they've traded second baseman Dee Gordon to the Miami Marlins while also acquiring second baseman Howie Kendrick via trade from the Los Angeles Angels. In return for Gordon, the Dodgers received pitcher Andrew Heaney, infielder Enrique Hernandez, reliever Chris Hatcher, and minor leaguer Austin Barnes from the Marlins. The Marlins will acquire Gordon, pitcher Dan Haren, and infielder Miguel Rojas. The 26-year-old Gordon was an All-Star in 2014 after batting .289 with 92 runs scored, 176 hits, and a National League-leading 64 stolen bases. In order to get Kendrick, the Dodgers had to depart with the recently acquired Heaney and ship him to the Angels. "We feel like within the totality of the moves, we made ourselves a better team," Dodgers president of baseball operations Andrew Friedman said. "Adding Howie Kendrick we felt like fit us really well: right-handed bat, tremendous hitter, really good defender, and then the young players we got should help us in 2015 and beyond." The 31-year-old Kendrick had spent his entire nine-year career with the Angels. This past season, he hit .293 with seven home runs, 75 RBIs, and scored 85 runs.

Angels’ Mike Trout Named AL MVP, Dodgers’ Clayton Kershaw Wins NL MVP

Angels’ Mike Trout Named AL MVP, Dodgers’ Clayton Kershaw Wins NL MVP Tom Szczerbowski/Getty Images(NEW YORK) -- Two of the best players in Major League Baseball earned their due on Thursday. Los Angeles Angels outfielder Mike Trout won the American League MVP, while Los Angeles Dodgers starting pitcher Clayton Kershaw won the National League MVP. The 22-year-old Trout finished second in the MVP voting the past two years, but has finally won the award in just his third full season, and in unanimous fashion. He's the third youngest A.L. player ever to win the award. Trout batted .287 with 36 home runs, 111 RBIs, and 115 runs scored in 2014. Kershaw had won his third National League Cy Young Award on Wednesday. He becomes the first player to win the N.L. Cy Young and MVP awards in the same season since Bob Gibson for the St. Louis Cardinals back in 1968. Despite missing all of April, the 26-year-old Kershaw went 21-3 with a 1.77 ERA, a 0.86 WHIP, and 239 strikeouts in 198.1 innings pitched. The Dodgers went 21-4 in Kershaw's 27 starts, and were only three games over .500 when anyone else pitched. Follow @ABCNewsRadio Copyright 2014 ABC News Radio 

Royals Sweep Angels, Meet Orioles in ALCS

Royals Sweep Angels, Meet Orioles in ALCS Brian D. Kersey/Getty Images(KANSAS CITY) -- In their first playoff appearance since 1985, the Kansas City Royals swept the Los Angeles Angels on Sunday, reaching the American League Championship Series (ALCS). The 8-3 margin was the largest in the best-of-five series after Kansas City won two games in Los Angeles in extra innings. "I've never seen this group of kids so confident on the big stage," said manager Ned Yost. "It's really fun to see their development and watch them come into the postseason and just really take their game to the next level." The Angels, who earned homefield advantage by having the leagues best regular-season record, took a 1-0 lead in the top of the first when Mike Trout homered off James Shields for his first-ever postseason hit. That lead quickly evaporated in the bottom half of the inning when the Royals' Alex Gordon drove in three runs with a double off C.J. Wilson, chasing the Los Angeles starter. Kansas City added to the lead in the third inning on Eric Hosmer's second homer of the playoffs, a two-run shot to center. Albert Pujols tried to spark a rally for the Angels with a solo shot of his own, but that was all Los Angeles could muster off Shields. "Big Game" James went six strong innings, allowing two runs on six hits while striking out six, while the offense added two runs in the fourth and another in the sixth. Wade Davis gave up a run in the eighth but the bullpen shut down an otherwise punchless Angels offense. The Royals will now meet the Baltimore Orioles, who swept Detroit earlier in the day, in the best-of-seven ALCS. Game One is Friday night in Baltimore.

Royals Beat Angels in Extras Again, Hold 2-0 Series Lead

Royals Beat Angels in Extras Again, Hold 2-0 Series Lead Rich Pilling/MLB Photos via Getty Images(ANAHEIM, Calif.) -- For the second consecutive night, the Kansas City Royals used an extra inning home run to beat Los Angeles, 4-1, in the American League Divisional Series (ALDS) on Friday night. Eric Hosmer's two-run homer in the top of eleventh gave the Royals a 3-1 lead, taking a 2-0 series lead over the Angels. Kansas City became the first time in Major League history to open up a postseason with three consecutive extra-inning wins, after spending 29 years without a playoff berth. They are the sixth team to win a trio of extra-inning games in one playoffs appearance. The previous five have all gone on to win the World Series. The Royals took an early lead against Matt Shoemaker when Alex Gordon drove in Hosmer with a single in the second. Los Angeles would eventually knot the score in the sixth on an Albert Pujols single, making it a 1-1 game after six innings. The Angels had a chance to take a lead in the bottom of the eighth. C.J. Cron doubled off reliever Wade Davis and was pinch-ran for by Collin Cowgill. Following Chris Iannetta's fly-out to center, newly inserted Jarrod Dyson threw out Cowgill trying to advance to third. That helped send the game into extras for the second straight night. Lorenzo Cain stretched out an infield single before Hosmer's go-ahead blast off Kevin Jepsen. Kansas City reliever Greg Holland pitched a scoreless bottom half of the inning, striking out Mike Trout to end the game. The series now shifts to Kansas City where James Shields will take on C.J. Wilson. Follow @ABCNewsRadio Copyright 2014 ABC News Radio

Mariners Hold Off Angels 3-2 in 12 Innings Rob Carr/Getty Images(ANAHEIM, Calif.) --  It's been just two games since the All-Star break, but the Seattle Mariners and Los Angeles Angels have already played a combined 28 innings. Logan Morrison hit a go-ahead RBI double in the 12th inning as the Mariners held on to beat the Angels 3-2 on Saturday night.  Los Angeles won 3-2 in 16 innings on Friday night. "I don't think our guys are tired. They're resilient," Mariners manager Lloyd McClendon said. "It's hard to win games at this level regardless of who you're playing. We just happened to be playing the team with the second-best record in baseball. "It was tough, but just like last night, in about five minutes, we've got to turn the page and get ready for (Sunday)." Kyle Seager hit a leadoff double in the 12th inning off of Angels reliever Joe Thatcher (0-1). Morrison lined a single to left to drive him in.  Pinch-hitter Justin Smoak added an RBI single to give the Mariners a two-run cushion. After taking the loss Friday, Dominic Leone (3-2) pitched one-plus inning for the Mariners to earn the victory.  Leone gave up a leadoff home run to David Freese in the bottom of the 12th inning and was pulled from the game.  Charlie Furbush stepped in and recorded the final three outs for the save.

Angels Release Raul Ibanez

Angels Release Raul Ibanez Denis Poroy/Getty Images(ANAHEIM, Calif.) -- After 19 seasons in Major League Baseball, it may finally be the end of the line for Raul Ibanez as the Los Angeles Angels have released the veteran outfielder. At age 42, Ibanez was the second-oldest active player in Major League Baseball behind Cleveland Indians designated hitter Jason Giambi. This season, Ibanez was hitting just .157 with three home runs, and 21 RBIs. "I am disappointed in the way that I performed for this great organization," Ibanez said in a statement released by the team on Saturday night. "Jerry [Dipoto] and Mike [Scioscia] were totally straightforward and professional with me today and I will always appreciate and respect them for that." If this is the end for Ibanez, he will finish with a career batting average of .273 with 303 home runs, 1,202 RBIs, and 2,019 hits. He played for the Seattle Mariners, Kansas City Royals, Philadelphia Phillies, New York Yankees, and the Angels. Follow @ABCNewsRadio Copyright 2014 ABC News Radio 

Angels Sticking with Slumping Raul Ibanez

Angels Sticking with Slumping Raul Ibanez Denis Poroy/Getty Images(NEW YORK) -- Los Angeles Angels' outfielder Raul Ibanez can't seem to snap out of his season-long funk, but the Angels don't plan on sending him to the bench. Ibanez is in his 19th season in Major League Baseball, and at 42 years old, is the second-oldest player in baseball. In 57 games this season, Ibanez is batting just .157 with three home runs and 21 RBIs. With the team calling up prospect C.J. Cron, some are wondering why he doesn't take Ibanez's place as the team's designated hitter. Manager Mike Scioscia is sticking with the veteran. "There’s no doubt he’s making some strides in the batter’s box, and you’re seeing better swings," Scioscia told the Los Angeles Times. "The bottom line is production. Nobody understands that better than Raul. He knows he needs to have better at-bats. Nobody is working harder than Raul, and we’re confident he’s going to contribute for us." Despite the lack of production for Ibanez, the Angels are fourth in Major League Baseball in runs scored. Follow @ABCNewsRadio Copyright 2014 ABC News Radio
