Josh Hamilton took one-handed swings yesterday and is expected to resume baseball activities next week. That is, unless you consider one-handed swings to be baseball activities. That may stretch the definition — one-handed swings are pretty boss, but they’re not that useful in games — so let’s just go with the official line here.

Hamilton underwent surgery earlier this month to repair a torn ulnar collateral ligament in his thumb and is in a splint now instead of a cast. His recovery has appeared to be uneventful and he may be back ahead of schedule.

    Hopefully he’s early and picks right up where he left off except when he plays the Rangers. My fantasy team needs him.

      Angels could use him. He was playing quite well to start off the season. If he can continue his bounce back along with Pujols, the Halos could go back over .500 real quick.

    Did he tear it by sliding, like Harper?

      Yes, sliding into first.

    I fully expect this idiot will apply the same logic to his rehab as he does diving headfirst into first and get thinking rushing things will get him back sooner.

    Well, that was a mess, which is to say that is to say THIS idiot thinks that Hamilton might think rehab is like diving into first, and looking hustley is more important that doing the right thing.
