After 34 months in prison, former No. 1 overall draft pick Matt Bush will get an opportunity to play baseball again. The Texas Rangers signed Bush to a minor-league deal Friday. Bush is considered one of the biggest draft busts of all time. His numbers on the field never matched his draft slot, but it was his antics off the field that cemented his legacy. Bush was had numerous run-ins with the law, most of which have involved alcohol. He was suspended before he ever took the field with the San Diego Padres organization after getting into a fight outside a bar in Arizona. After struggling to hit early in his career, the Padres converted Bush to a pitcher in 2007. He underwent Tommy John surgery, and missed all of 2008.
