Player Notes
Court documents show Josh Hamilton has filed for divorce from his wife Katie in Tarrant County, Texas.

Advice: Hamilton filed for divorce in late February, around the same time reports surfaced of his latest drug relapse. Hamilton was able to avoid suspension from Major League Baseball, much to the chagrin of his own team. The Angels don't want to pay the underachieving 33-year-old outfielder and have been publicly feuding with him since the spring. He hasn't even been healthy enough to play thanks to a shoulder injury. Los Angeles' five-year deal with Hamilton is looking worse by the day.

Angels manager Mike Scioscia confirmed Friday that Josh Hamilton (shoulder) has been doing some baseball activities.

Advice: According to Scioscia, "he has been "hitting and he's been running, but he needs to expand on that". It remains a murky situation, but Hamilton had lunch with several teammates on Friday and indicated his desire to return to the team. He isn't expected to be ready to take the field until sometime in May.

Angels owner Arte Moreno told reporters Friday that the team may use provisions in Josh Hamilton's contract to seek legal action against him.

Advice: Moreno elaborated, "It’s not about money, nothing about money,". "In our contract, there’s language that he signed and that his agent approved that said he cannot drink and use drugs. So, we have specific language in the agreement. We have a couple other players who have the same language." The Angels are still on the hook for $83 million through the 2017 season, so if they can void any or all of that financial obligation, it would be welcomed on their end. If the Halos do decide to pursue legal action, the Major League Baseball Player's Association will certainly come to Hamilton's defense, touting the Joint Drug and Prevention and Treatment Program which was collectively-bargained and may preclude individual contract terms.
