Josh Hamilton suffers setback while swinging

Sep 14, 2010, 6:28 PM EDT

Josh Hamilton resumed swinging Tuesday, only to shut himself down after experiencing a spasm in his rib-cage area.
It was the first time Hamilton had picked up a bat since suffering three bruised ribs in a collision with the outfield wall at Target Field on Sept. 5. He made it through about 25 swings before the pain got to him and he called it a day.
After the session, he said he wouldn’t attempt to swing again Wednesday. There’s still no timetable for his return. Since this has to be viewed as a setback, it doesn’t appear all that likely that he’ll return to the starting lineup this week.

    No! Combined with Morneau’s injury, this injury marks finis to my fantasy baseball team.

    For the love of christ, they have like an 8 game lead. Shut this dude down for the next 2 weeks. This may be the last hurrah for the rangers for the next decade. why rush him back?
