"Cubs selected outfielder Josh Hamilton from the Devil Rays with the third pick in the Rule 5 draft.
Baseball America is reporting that he'll be traded to the Reds. They can take a look at him, but it's highly unlikely that they'll keep him. The 25-year-old Hamilton played in just 15 games in his comeback season, hitting .260/.327/.360 in the Midwest League. Prior to that, he hadn't played in a game since 2002. It's not very likely that he'll have a career in the majors, and he certainly isn't ready now."
