TTM Success - Josh Hamilton
Hamilton (b. 1981) has played in the majors from 2007 to 2015 for the Reds, Rangers and Angels. He was a former #1 overall pick by the Rays in the 1999 June Amateur Draft. His career was seemingly derailed due to substance abuse issues until he was claimed in the 2007 Rule V draft by the Reds. Since that time, he has been selected to 5 All Star teams, won the 2010 AL Batting Title and the 2010 AL MVP Award. Also, a three-time Silver Slugger Award winner, Hamilton has suffered multiple injuries which have limited his playing time (and caused him to miss all of the 2016 season).
Hamilton has 1,134 hits, 200 home runs and a .290 batting average across the 9 seasons in which he has played. He has had 100 or more RBI in three seasons and hit 30 or more home runs in three seasons, as well.
I mailed to Hamilton on October 25 and got the card back on February 11, for a 109-day TAT.
