Any Josh Hamilton / Cole Calhoun updates?

Recommended Posts

Dipoto just now on XM radio said Hamilton will be out at least 4 more weeks and Calhoun 4 to 5 weeks. He mentioned Grant Green might get called up to play in the OF after he he gets more practice at that position. 


Calhoun must have really jacked his ankle up.   Nice to see the team looking for ways to get Green's bat up.  Cron leading the PCL in 2Bs while ranking 5th in HRs is a nice insurance policy for Ibanez.

I really hope Hamilton can pick up where he left off, just in time for Trout to go full on Trout mode and Pujols to cement himself as an MVP candidate.

This. Angels need to be winning in blowouts. The last thing the Angels can afford is ending up in a save situation.

Call up Green


release Freese if he doesn't start hitting in a month


Send Shuck packing to Salt Lake


Trade Kendrick for relievers in a month (when Hamilton and Calhoun are ready to mash)


Call up Lindsey in a month


Call up Morin


lineup becomes:


Calhoun RF

Trout CF

Pujols 1B

Worth noting

• Outfielder Josh Hamilton (surgery on left thumb) expects to have the cast removed from his hand by the end of this week and will partake in baseball activities (throwing, swinging) next week.

"He's ahead of the curve, making a lot of progress," Scioscia said.

Hamilton underwent surgery on April 11 to repair a complete tear of the ulnar collateral ligament in the thumb. His timetable to return was set at six to eight weeks.

• Outfielder Kole Calhoun (sprained right ankle) played catch before Monday's game. He sustained the injury on April 15 against Oakland, when his ankle rolled over just after he cleared first base while running out a grounder.

"He's out of the boot and walking around, but he's still sore," Scioscia said.
