Josh Hamilton could start a rehab assignment in a week

Josh Hamilton took batting practice yesterday and it went well. Now:

“He’s kept himself as close as he can to staying in baseball shape with some of the drills he’s done,” Scioscia said, adding that it’s hoped Hamilton can start playing rehabilitation games in a week or so.

Worth noting that the Angels are 22-18 and are only 2.5 back of the A’s, despite Oakland being one of the hotter teams in baseball. If Hamilton comes back hitting the way he was when he left, the Angels could make the AL West pretty darn interesting.
