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.
 
9/26/2014 8:55:00 PM
Description: Angels left fielder Josh Hamilton will resume swinging a bat on Saturday.
Insight: Hamilton has played just one game since Sept. 5. Angels manager Mike Scioscia said Friday that Hamilton will face live pitching before the playoffs begin, but his status for the postseason remains unclear. Hamilton is hitting .263 with 10 home runs and 44 RBI.
 
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 out of the lineup on Tuesday night against the Rangers.
Insight: Hamilton returned to action on Tuesday after missing 11 games, but he has now been out three straight days. Hamilton said Thursday that he will do his best to get ready for the playoffs, but his status is very unclear.
 
9/16/2014 6:06:00 PM
Description: Angels left fielder Josh Hamilton returns to the lineup on Tuesday night against the Mariners.
Insight: Hamilton missed 10 games with a right shoulder injury. He will DH and bat sixth on Tuesday.
 
9/11/2014 5:25:00 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.
Insight: Hamilton left Thursday's game due to the injury. He received trigger point injections on Sunday to help, but he still wasn't quite ready. He's batting .263 with 10 HR, 44 RBI in 88 games.
 
9/8/2014 11:46:00 AM
Description: Angels left fielder Josh Hamilton (shoulder, neck) is out of the Angels' lineup again Monday versus the Indians.
Insight: Hamilton left Thursday's game due to the injury, which he says he suffered Tuesday. He has been experiencing discomfort around his right shoulder and neck. He received trigger point injections on Sunday to help, but he still isn't quite ready. Collin Cowgill is starting in left field on Monday.
 
9/5/2014 10:53:00 AM
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.
Insight: Hamilton left Thursday's game due to the injury which he says he suffered Tuesday. He received a cortisone shot and should return soon. Call his day-to-day, but not Friday.
 
8/23/2014 10:31:00 AM
Description: Angels left fielder Josh Hamilton has gone 4-for-9 with two doubles, a homer, five RBI and two walks in his last three games.
Insight: Hamilton went 5-for-41 (.122) with 18 strikeouts from Aug. 5 to Aug. 16 and he was out of the lineup on Aug. 17-18 at his own request to clear his head. He hasn't struck out since then.
 
Cold8/20/2014 12:17:00 PM
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.
 
Cold8/19/2014 4:04:00 PM
Description: Angels left fielder Josh Hamilton is back in the lineup for Tuesday's game against the Red Sox. He will hit cleanup.
Insight: Hamilton had requested time off because of his struggles at the plate and manager Mike Scioscia gave him the time. The outfielder is hitting .132 in his last ten games and has gone 10-for-59 (.169) since July 31.
 
8/18/2014 4:35:00 PM
Description: Angels left fielder Josh Hamilton is not in Monday's starting lineup.
Insight: It's not an injury. Hamilton apparently requested Sunday off because of his struggles at the plate and will get tonight off as well. Brennan Boesch will start in left.
 
8/17/2014 1:56:00 PM
Description: Angels left fielder Josh Hamilton is not in Sunday's starting lineup. Collin Cowgill will get the start in right field.
Insight: No injury that we know of, just a routine day off. Cowgill is batting .271 this season with five homers and a .745 OPS in 192 at-bats so has limited fantasy appeal.
 
8/12/2014 10:12:00 AM
Description: Angels left fielder Josh Hamilton is a career .545 hitter (6-for-11) with a double and three homers against Phillies starter Jerome Williams.
Insight: Williams was bad with Houston and worse with Texas and should be ripe for the picking by Hamilton. The outfielder is just 1-for 20 over the past five games, but might still be worth the gamble.
 
8/10/2014 2:14:00 PM
Description: Angels left fielder Josh Hamilton is out of the lineup Sunday against the Red Sox.
Insight: Hamilton is getting a day off after going 1-for-23 with nine Ks in his last five games, including 1-for-8 during Saturday's 19-inning affair.
