Because of Josh Hamilton‘s severe substance abuse history, MLB has taken an interest in the young man since he resumed his baseball career following all of that time in the wilderness. He has to check in with the league’s substance abuse panel and stuff. And according to Evan Grant of the Dallas Morning News, he did just that recently, and they’re content to let his latest lapse go without formal discipline:
Daniels said beyond formal discipline, any recommendations made by the MLB substance-abuse panel are confidential.
“We will take additional steps to support him,” Daniels said. “We will have more ability to help him during the season. There will be no formal discipline.”
Hamilton was on some radio show on Glen Beck’s video network thingy the other night and said he’s undergoing counseling — both drug and couples counseling — so that’s probably all that’ll happen.
No word on what this all means for Whitney Houston.
