Description: The Angels are bracing for a serious penalty in reagrds to outfielder Josh Hamilton.
Insight: Fox Sports' Ken Rosenthal reports that it is "worse" than the use of performing-enhancing drugs. We do not want to speculate, but Hamilton is seemingly in a ton of trouble. Brace yourselves.
 
2/20/2015 6:47:00 PM
Description: Angels general manager Jerry Dipoto told the Los Angeles Times on Friday that left fielder Josh Hamilton could miss up to 12 weeks with his shoulder injury.
Insight: Hamilton's original timetable was six-to-eight weeks, so that's quite a difference. The weird thing is Hamilton hasn't suffered a setback; Dipoto has simply just changed the prognosis. This situation just indicates that the Angels really have no idea when Hamilton will be back, and he may not return until May.
 
2/3/2015 7:02:00 PM
Description: Angels left fielder Josh Hamilton (shoulder) will be sidelined the next 6-8 weeks.
Insight: He needs surgery to repair the AC joint in his right shoulder. This will likely give Hamilton a late start, and there is now doubt that he will be ready for opening day.
 
10/5/2014 9:40:00 AM
Description: Angels left fielder Josh Hamilton's struggles will likely continue on Sunday in Game 3 of the ALDS.
Insight: Hamilton is hitless in nine at-bats so far versus Kansas City and in his career against Royals starter James Shields, Hamilton is 3-for-25 (.167). It is possible Hamilton is still dealing with the injuries that kept him out of games for much of September. At the very least, he is rusty.
 
10/1/2014 8:30:00 PM
Description: Angels left fielder Josh Hamilton (shoulder, chest, rib cage) will start in left field, according to Alden Gonzalez.
Insight: He will hit seventh in the lineup, as the Angels hope to ease him back in. Hamilton has been out since September 4th, but seems to be ready to roll for Game 1 of the ALDS.
 
9/30/2014 8:40:00 PM
Description: Angels left fielder Josh Hamilton (shoulder) told Jeff Fletcher of the Orange County Register that he is ready to play in the ALDS which starts on Thursday.
Insight: Hamilton took batting practice, threw long toss, and ran the bases without any setbacks the last two days. He has played just one game since Sept. 4, but the Angels will likely put him in the lineup on Thursday.
 
9/29/2014 5:40:00 PM
Description: Angels left fielder Josh Hamilton (shoulder) did a full workout without any setbacks according to Jeff Fletcher of the Orange County Register.
Insight: Hamilton took batting practice, threw long toss and ran the bases. He will do the same on Tuesday, and then if all goes well, face live pitching on Wednesday. The Angels are hoping he can start Game 1 of the ALDS on Thursday.
 
9/28/2014 5:48:00 PM
Description: Angels left fielder Josh Hamilton (shoulder) will take batting practice on Monday according to Orange County Register.
Insight: Hamilton will also take batting practice on Tuesday and hopefully face live pitching on Wednesday. Hamilton has received an incredible 12 cortisone shots over the last two weeks to try and shed the pain in his right shoulder. The playoffs start on Thursday for the Angels.

9/22/2014 8:43:00 PM
Description: Angels left fielder Josh Hamilton will not play until at least this weekend according to the Orange County Register.
Insight: Hamilton was hoping to return on Wednesday, but Angels manager Mike Scioscia has ruled that out. He did hit off a tee on Monday, and Scioscia said that went well. It wouldn't be a huge surprise if he doesn't play again until the playoffs.
 
9/19/2014 7:10:00 PM

Description: Angels left fielder Josh Hamilton is not in the lineup on Thursday. UPDATE: Hamilton has been ruled out through the weekend.
Insight: Hamilton is missing his sixth straight game. He has been dealing with discomfort around his shoulder and neck since late August. With the healthy division lead, the Angels won't rush him back.
 
9/9/2014 10:16:00 AM
Description: Angels left fielder Josh Hamilton (shoulder, neck) was out of the Angels' lineup again Monday and is questionable for the start of the Texas series.

Description: Angels left fielder Josh Hamilton is out for Friday's game against Minnesota due to a sore right shoulder, according to Angels beat reporter Mike DiGiovanna.

Description: Angels left fielder Josh Hamilton went 0-for-3 in his return to the lineup Tuesday at Boston and he's just 2-for-22 (.091) with six Ks against Wednesday's starter Clay Buchholz.
Insight: Hamilton has gone 5-for-41 (.122) with 18 strikeouts in his last 11 games and he was out of the lineup Sunday and Monday at his own request in order to clear his head. He's not someone fantasy owners should be using right now even if he has a favorable matchup, which isn't the case Wednesday.
