Report: Rangers' Josh Hamilton Has Alcohol-Related Relapse

Rangers outfielder Josh Hamilton, a recovering alcoholic and drug addict, had a relapse this week, according to a report from Gerry Fraley of the Dallas Morning News.

Sources told Fraley that Hamilton drank alcohol on Monday night in an area bar, but the circumstances leading to the incident could not be determined.

The Rangers released a statement today to say they were "aware of a situation, but we don't have further comment at this time."

This was Hamilton's second relapse into drinking in just over three years; he also drank to excess in a Tempe, Ariz., bar in January 2009.

Hamilton, the 2010 American League MVP, is entering the final year of his contract with the Rangers. He's due to make $13.75 million in 2012.
