Josh Hamilton reported feeling better yesterday after receiving an epidural injection and several cortisone shots for his fractured ribs earlier this week, but there’s still no timetable yet for his return.
Hamilton rode a stationary bike for 15 minutes yesterday and also did what T.R. Sullivan of MLB.com described as “some light exercises.” Here’s what he said afterward:
Today was the first day I got my breath going and was out of breath. That’s encouraging. The shots seem to be helping with the pain factor. I’m going to keep doing something every day as long as it’s not setting me back.
Upon being diagnosed with the rib fractures Hamilton expressed hope that he could rejoin the lineup for the final 4-5 games of the season, but according to Sullivan the goal is now for the MVP candidate to return for the final three games with an eye toward getting him “12-15 at-bats in preparation for the playoffs.”
