How Long Will He Be Out?
Rangers slugger still sidelined.
SURPRISE, Ariz. (AP) - Outfielder Josh Hamilton has been
scratched from the Texas Rangers' initial intrasquad game with a
bruised left shoulder.
Hamilton had been scheduled to play left and bat third during
Monday's intrasquad game. Rangers manager Ron Washington says he is
not concerned about the injury at this point, but would be if it
keeps Hamilton out for "another four or five days."
Hamilton bruised his shoulder Thursday in the Rangers first full
squad workout when he fell while running after a pop-up during a
fly ball drill. Hamilton returned on Saturday, but did not
participate in the rain-shortened Sunday session.
Hamilton was limited to 89 games last year because of injuries.
