Reds' Hamilton OK'd to Return

CINCINNATI (AP) - Medical tests confirmed Wednesday that
Cincinnati Reds outfielder Josh Hamilton has nothing more serious
than an inflamed digestive tract.
Hamilton had severe stomach pain Friday night in Cleveland,
where the Reds were playing an interleague series. Cincinnati
placed him on the 15-day disabled list Monday, when he was still
weak from the ailment.
Precautionary tests confirmed the original diagnosis of
gastroenteritis, or inflammation of the digestive system. Hamilton
will rest for a few days, then resume working out. He could be sent
to the minors to work back into shape before coming off the
disabled list.
Hamilton returned to baseball this season after fighting through
alcohol and drug addiction. The 26-year-old rookie is hitting .261
with eight homers.
