Top Caleb Hamilton News

  • Angels' Caleb Hamilton: Signs MiLB deal with Halos

    Hamilton signed a minor-league contract with the Angels on Thursday, Taylor Blake Ward of The Sporting Tribune reports.

    Hamilton is a defense-first catcher who is somehow 1-for-23 with 19 strikeouts during his brief chances in the majors. He'll give the Angels some catching depth at Triple-A Salt Lake.

  • Red Sox's Caleb Hamilton: Designated for assignment

    Hamilton was designated for assignment Thursday, Alex Speier of The Boston Globe reports.

  • Red Sox's Caleb Hamilton: Promotion imminent

    The Red Sox will select Hamilton's contract from Triple-A Worcester on Thursday, Chris Cotillo of The Springfield Republican reports.

    With Reese McGuire (oblique) almost certainly headed for the injured list, Hamilton will join the Red Sox to serve as the backup catcher behind Connor Wong. Hamilton has a little bit of MLB experience, having logged one hit in 18 at-bats last season with the Twins. He is currently slashing .173/.281/.306 with 13 RBI across 114 plate appearances in the minors.

    The 28-year-old catcher slashed .180/.284/.310 in 30 games at Triple-A. Hamilton should serve as Connor Wong's backup while Reese McGuire is on the injured list with an oblique strain.

  • Red Sox's Caleb Hamilton: Reassigned to minors camp

    The Red Sox reassigned Hamilton to minor-league camp Friday.

    Hamilton had a solid season in Triple-A last year, slashing .238/.371/.447 with 42 RBI through 251 plate appearances, and has also got a cup of coffee with the Twins. If Hamilton proves he can maintain a similar level of output with Triple-A Worcester, he'll likely return to the majors at some point this year.
