Josh Hamilton: I could continue sliding into first


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(4/9/2014) A thumb injury sustained Tuesday night that could land Angels outfielder Josh Hamilton on the disabled list was the result of him diving into first base in the seventh inning, per the Orange County Register. X-rays on the thumb were negative, but an MRI scheduled for Wednesday could reveal a bigger problem.

Despite it all, however, Hamilton refuses to swear off the practice that is generally considered a slower route to the bag and a huge injury risk.

"I shouldn't have done it probably," he said. "I'm not going to say I'll never do it again because I'd be lying."

Hamilton is off to a sizzling start after making adjustments to his approach at the plate. He owns a stat line of .500/.600/.833.

Josh Hamilton succeeding after adjusting his stance


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(4/8/2014) Angels outfielder Josh Hamilton made an adjustment to his stance, according to the Los Angeles Times.

Hamilton has made an adjustment to his stance, which allows him to see the ball better. "Hitting is rhythm and timing," Hamilton said. "If one is out of sync, you are going to struggle. I completely forgot about it last year."

He's done a much better job laying off pitches outside of the strike zone to start the season. Part of that is due to Hamilton trying to wait for his pitch. "Plate discipline is not always going to lead to a walk," manager Mike Scioscia said. "It leads to getting better pitches to hit."

Hamilton has drawn six walks in seven games this season, a total he reached in 26 games last year. He's hitting .500, with two home runs.
