Josh Hamilton has been sidelined for the past week and a half after straining his left calf during a baserunning drill, but he’s getting closer to making his spring debut.
According to Mike DiGiovanna of the Los Angeles Times, Hamilton is scheduled to take batting practice on the field tomorrow. If all goes well, Angels manager Mike Scioscia sees him getting into game action “within a week so,” which should give him plenty of time to gear up for the regular season.
Hamilton is looking to rebound after he batted just .250/.307/.432 with 21 home runs and 79 RBI over 151 games in his first season with the Angels. The 32-year-old outfielder still has four years and $106 million remaining on his contract.
