ATLANTA (AP) _ Mike Hampton's latest comeback lasted all of one
The 35-year-old pitcher signed one of the richest contracts in
baseball history but hasn't pitched for the Atlanta Braves since
2005 because of injuries. The latest is a problem with his right
hamstring suffered during the first inning of his very first start
in the Mexican Winter League.
The former 20-game winner will need up to a month to recover,
which ends his stint south of the border. The Braves now must wait
until February to get a realistic assessment of Hampton's chances
of returning to the mound.
