Hot Stove: Josh Hamilton reportedly offered 3-year deal from Phillies

Rangers free agent outfielder Josh Hamilton [1] was offered a three-year deal [2] from the Phillies, according to a report from Philadelphia radio station WIP.

Dallas Morning News [3] writer Gerry Fraley speculated that a three-year deal worth more than $25 million per season might be enough for Hamilton, assuming no team is willing to take a risk on a longer-team contract with the 31-year-old who has a history of substance-abuse issues.

Hamilton hit .285/.354/.577 with 43 home runs and 128 RBIs last season. In six major league seasons (one with the Reds and five All-Star seasons with the Rangers), he’s hitting .304/.363/.549 with 161 home runs and 553 RBIs. He was named American League [4] MVP in 2010 after hitting .359/.411/.633 with 32 home runs and 100 RBIs.
