Two weeks ago, Torii Hunter was placed on the Los Angeles Angels restricted list. He needed to leave the team to return to Texas, where his son Darius had been arrested on allegations of sexual assault.
The Associated Press reports that Hunter has returned to the team after missing 14 games. Hunter hopes to be ready to come off the restricted list and return to action soon.
According to Hunter, the alleged sexual assault took place a week before his son was arrested, but was unable to comment much further about the case.
"Can't really talk about much," Hunter said. "I'm not a no-commenter. You know I want to tell you everything, but I can't do it. I've got to let the justice system play its part, and let my attorneys do what they have to do, and hopefully this thing gets dropped, but we're ready to go to court no matter what.
"I don't wish this on any father out there," he added. "I know a lot of fathers have been through it, but I don't wish this on anybody, to see your son go through this. All the embarrassment, all the lies that are out there - don't always believe what you read, because it's not even close. But it's a lot better."
The Angels are certainly glad that Hunter's family issues are being taken care of and will be grateful to have him back in the lineup soon.
