Things are looking up for Josh Hamilton, who was hospitalized Friday evening with an intestinal virus.

According to Drew Davison of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram, Hamilton was released from a local hospital Saturday after receiving intravenous fluids overnight. He’ll work out Sunday at Rangers Ballpark before heading out to San Diego with the team for a three-game series that begins Monday night.

“Hopefully he’ll be ready to go when we get to San Diego,” said Rangers manager Ron Washington.

Hamilton is hitting .330/.390/.674 with 22 home runs and 62 RBI in 60 games this season for Texas.

    He just can’t catch a break. Just when he looks healthy something like this happens. Tough!

    The Rangers don’t need him this weekend anyway, their playing the lowly Astros.
