UPDATE: Josh Hamilton bangs his shoulder

Feb 25, 2010, 2:11 PM EST

2:11pm: Now MLB.com’s T.R. Sullivan tells us that Hamilton will have X-rays taken to make sure nothing is structurally wrong with the shoulder.  Let’s assume it’s just a precautionary measure.

THURSDAY, 1:43pm: Hamilton woke up Thursday with a good amount of soreness and may stick to conditioning work for the next few days.  It doesn’t sound too serious, though, and he should be caught up with the rest of the Rangers’ position players by the time spring games begin.

WEDNESDAY, 4:40pm: First day of workouts and Josh Hamilton is already hurt, having taken a spill while chasing a fly ball. Bruises and contusions they say.  He’s day-to-day, as are we all.

Last year Hamilton missed time with rib cage, groin and back problems.  If you’re a Rangers fan you’d rather see him not get hurt, but at least he’s wearing evenly.

    “but at least he’s wearing evenly”
    Been in the Philippines for several weeks and missed the CTB, er Hardball humor – good to know you haven’t missed a beat, Craig.
    Gator, if you’re reading this, I ate all kinds of delicacies including a startling variety of pork products and of course the obligatory lechon. I had to work out twice a day to keep up with the calorie intake and will not be getting my blood levels checked anytime soon until my cholesterol settles down.

    Every time I see a headline about and athlete with “bang” in the title, I can’t help but think of Tiger Woods.

    Freud would like that comment.
