Darryl Hamilton was a former Major League outfielder who played with several teams from 1988-2001.

Born in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, Hamilton spent time with the Milwaukee Brewers (1988, 1990-95), Texas Rangers (1996), San Francisco Giants (1997-1998), Colorado Rockies (1998-1999) and New York Mets (1999-2001).

His career totals included a .291 batting average with 51 homers and 454 runs batted in, playing 1328 games. Was a ground ball hitter who rarely struck out.

A great fielder at all outfield positions, Hamilton recorded 2711 putouts, with 46 assists garnering a fielding percentage of .995 in 2771 total chances. He holds the American League records for consecutive errorless chances (541) and errorless games (229).

He played college baseball at Louisiana State University.

 

Hamilton’s life ended tragically at the age of 50.

On Sunday, June 21, 2015, Hamilton and girlfriend Monica Jordan were found dead in a Pearland, Texas residence, in what appeared to be a murder-suicide. Investigators said it appeared Hamilton had been shot more than once and Jordan died from a self-inflicted gunshot wound. Hamilton and Jordan’s 15 month-old child was found alive by police in the home. It was ruled a murder-suicide.

At the time of his death, he had been working for the MLB Network and MLB.com.

Hamilton was married twice to two celebrities. He was married to Access Hollywood anchor Shaun Robinson in 1994. He also was married to fashion model Ursaline Steinke in 2000, with whom he had two sons. Both marriages ended in divorce.

Reds recall Cingrani, designate Jeff Reynolds for assignment

The Cincinnati Reds recalled left-hander Tony Cingrani from their Arizona League affiliate to start on Sunday against the LA Dodgers. To make room on the roster, pitcher Greg Reynolds was designated for assignment.

Cingrani was definitely up to the task as he pitched seven innings, allowing one hit, one walk and struck out 11.

The 28-year-old Reynolds, the former No. 2 overall Draft pick by the Colorado Rockies in 2006, was called up on Tuesday to pitch Game 2 of the doubleheader at San Francisco. In his first big league game since 2011, he allowed five earned runs and eight hits over five innings in a 5-3 loss.

The Pacifica, California native’s future with the Reds will be done if he is claimed by another team.

Because Reynolds is out of options, he will be exposed to waivers over the next 10 days. If he is not claimed or traded, he can return outright to Triple-A Louisville, where he compiled a 10-2 record with a 2.54 ERA.

The Reds would like to keep him in the organization.
