Josh Hamilton has missed back-to-back games with a bum ankle and it now looks like he’s going to miss more, as he required a cortisone shot.
The weirdest part is that the ankle — which he has described as being sore – was apparently hurt doing nothing. Hamilton explained it to the L.A. Times:
He said the ankle first stiffened on him when he awoke Monday morning. With no apparent trigger for the injury, Hamilton explained how it happened this way: “I woke up.”
Hamilton said “I guess I’m getting older.” Which, yes, I feel you, dude. But it is strange for a major league ballplayer to get hurt like that. Not the strangest — here are some of those — but definitely not one you see every day.
