Angels Injury Update: Josh Hamilton improving, still no timetable

By on 9/15/2014 11:30:00 AM

The Los Angeles Angels lost to the Houston Astros on Sunday by the score of 6-1. Even with the loss, the Angels have the best record in baseball at 93-56. At first in runs scored and 11th in team ERA, the Angels should be coasting into the post season. The question is whether or not Josh Hamilton, who has been out with a shoulder injury, will be a part of the run. He is improving, but there is still no timetable for his return.

Our own Darius Austin reported on September 10 that Hamilton's discomfort has spread from his AC joint to the surrounding muscle. It was already unclear as to how long he'll be out.

An update on Hamilton, as reported at the Angels Blog at the Orange County Register, is that he has improved but manager Mike Scioscia is still not confident about Hamilton's return before the end of the regular season in two weeks.
“Josh had a good workout this morning,. He feels improved – not quite ready to go, but I think he made a lot of progress this morning. We’re excited about that.”
Hamilton, in his eighth Major League season, is batting .263 with 10 home runs and 44 RBI this season. The veteran outfielder has played for the Reds, Rangers and Angels and is a career .292 hitter with 192 home runs and 676 RBI.
