Josh Hamilton goes deep during double-header


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com

Relaxed Josh Hamilton puts poor 2013 aside


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(6/20/2014) Angels left fielder Josh Hamilton has put 2013 behind him - and that's a good thing. But he admits that he has learned from what was a terrible experience after leaving Texas for Los Angeles.

"Having a year under my belt here helps," he told Sports on Earth. "Not having to come to spring training being the new guy and trying to get to know all the players and coaches and get a feel for the organization - having that all out of the way has made things better. I'm a lot more comfortable now. Just having to worry about doing my work rather than all the other stuff that surrounded it last year."

Hamilton also no longer concerns himself with living up to his lucrative contract. That was a problem a season ago.

"I found out that you can only try so hard and that's it," he said. "All you can do is give it the very best you can."

That seems to be working despite a recent slump in which he hasn't homered since June 3. He has 16 hits, including four doubles, in the last 12 games. He still owns a stat line .319/.392/.484 despite a recent 5-for-28 slide.

Josh Hamilton picks up three hits Saturday


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(6/8/2014) Angels outfielder Josh Hamilton did the impossible Saturday, getting two hits off lefty Chris Sale.

He singled in both the fifth and seventh innings off Sale. Hamilton added a third single the following inning. He finished 3 for 4, with one run scored and zero RBI.

Josh Hamilton feeling good after batting practice


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com

He is hitting without a protective splint on his hand, and wants to see how the thumb responds to hitting on a pitching machine that tosses balls out at a good velocity, according to MLB.com.

"The first few swings I took today I was a little timid," Hamilton said. "I was like, 'All right, cut it loose.' So I did, and it felt fine."
