Texas Rangers MVP outfielder Josh Hamilton will resume some baseball-related activities on Wednesday, as Jeff Wilson of the Forth Worth Star-Telegram notes that Hamilton will begin swinging a bat at a ball on a tee. Or, as the kids call it these days, "hitting against Barry Zito."
Hamilton sustained a fracture of his humerus bone while trying to score on a wild pitch that didn't bounce too far away from home plate on April 12. He was expected to be out for six to eight weeks, and it looks like that's still the schedule.
Even without Hamilton, the Rangers have fared quite well offensively, with Chris Davis, Mike Napoli, and David Murphy all getting extra at-bats in the place of Hamilton. The Rangers' team OPS+ is 116, and they're tied with the Cleveland Indians for the league lead in scoring, but surely they're eager to get Hamilton back in the lineup.
