Josh Hamilton could start a rehab assignment in a week

Josh Hamilton took batting practice yesterday and it went well. Now:

“He’s kept himself as close as he can to staying in baseball shape with some of the drills he’s done,” Scioscia said, adding that it’s hoped Hamilton can start playing rehabilitation games in a week or so.

Worth noting that the Angels are 22-18 and are only 2.5 back of the A’s, despite Oakland being one of the hotter teams in baseball. If Hamilton comes back hitting the way he was when he left, the Angels could make the AL West pretty darn interesting.

    It’s only May and it’s a long season but I’m actually excited about how the Angels are doing for the first time in a while! If Hamilton can hit the way he started out the year, that would be a boon for the Halos. Even if he cools off and stays at an average pace, it will really improve the Halos too.

    Josh Hamilton being involved, could go 1 of many directions

      if you don’t follow baseball, why do you make comments here?

      • jerze2387 - May 16, 2014 at 1:57 PM

        I do follow. Thats how i know what a douchebag Hamilton is.

        but the last two comments I have seen from you have been horribly dated (and frankly terrible) jokes about billy bean(e) and josh hamilton’s addiction.

        it seems like you haven’t paid attention since 2010 or so.

      Oh look, another joke about Josh Hamilton being a former addict. How original.

      You can call him a douchebag, but you’re the one who comes off looking like that when you make fun of someone for suffering from addiction. At least Hamilton is strong enough to break free of the shackles of addiction and become a world class baseball player. What have you done lately?

        lets see…not done crack ever, not twice been caught drinking when i was suppsed to be sober, or derailing my life. More than he could say.

        He did all that and yet he’s still worth $100 million more than you or I. How’s that make you feel?

    I just don’t like josh hamilton, and the billy beane comment was true. I had them mixed up til I saw moneyball and wondered how he had a daughter.

    I am lickin’ my chops.
    Pitchers are going down all around. Looking to be a hitter’s season.
    The Angels call-ups are hitting well.
    The Angels pitchers are good or getting better. Hamilton is coming back.
    Trout is hitting walk off homer(s).
    The Angels have an excellent run differential already.
    They could pound their way through the summer.
    Lots of runs. Lots of fun.
