Josh Hamilton: Injuries Are Part of the Game

Despite best efforts, Josh Hamilton’s injuries will not keep him out of the Texas line-up.

The Fort-Worth Star Telegarm is reporting that x-rays on Hamilton’s left hand came back negative.  Hamilton suffered a contusion on the outside of  his left hand after being hit with a Madison Bumgarner fastball on Monday.

Earlier in the spring, Hamilton injured his shoulder while diving for a ball.

Last year, Hamilton suffered back, glute and nerve injuries.

Texas expects Hamilton back in the lineup on Wednesday.  He will miss Tuesday’s game due to additional dental work required after a February root canal.

In an unrelated story, ESPN reports that Hamilton’s fantasy mock-draft value has dropped for four consecutive weeks.
