Josh Hamilton traveled to Los Angeles to see a specialist about his rib injury and this afternoon the Rangers announced that he’s been diagnosed with “a small stable fracture in the seventh and eighth ribs that previous tests had not picked up.”
Hamilton received an anti-inflammatory injection and an epidural injection, which means he won’t be doing anything for at least a few days while the Rangers find out if that helps. He also got a pair of cortisone shots last week.
According to general manager Jon Daniels: “Once the discomfort recedes to a point where Josh is comfortable, he can return to baseball activities.” In other words, right now there’s no timetable for his return.
