Josh Hamilton Strained Calf

Hopefully this isn't something that lingers throughout the year. Depends on severity of the strain, but right now they're considering it a minor strain.

 

For the Angels, "minor strain" means anywhere from six weeks to three months.

 

If it lingers all year, his numbers will probably be in the toilet.

 

I can't stand this anymore!

  • Grade 1 Calf Strain: The muscle is stretched causing some small micro tears in the muscle fibers. Full recovery takes approximately two weeks.
  • Grade 2 Calf Strain : There is partial tearing of muscle fibers. Full recovery takes approximately 5-8 weeks.
  • Grade 3 Calf Strain: This is the most severe calf strain with a complete tearing or rupture of muscle fibers in the lower leg. Full recovery can take 3-4 months and, in some instances, surgery may be needed.

I'm guessing "minor strain" is the grade 1. So............... 3-4 months out.
