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.
