Josh Hamilton LF/CF.. LAA 5 Days

Hamilton is out of the lineup Wednesday against the Mariners, Ryan Divish of the Seattle Times reports.

Since Hamilton just returned Tuesday from a lengthy absence due to a shoulder injury, it appears manager Mike Scioscia just didn't want to use him back-to-back days right away. Collin Cowgill will cover left field for him Wednesday.

Hamilton (shoulder) is back in the lineup Tuesday against the Mariners.

Manager Mike Scioscia had previously indicated that Wednesday was the earliest possible for Hamilton's return, but the 33-year-old will step back in at DH Tuesday to face Mariners lefty Roenis Elias after being treated with a pair of cortisone shots last week. Hamilton will return to the No. 6 spot in the order, with Scioscia likely to continue riding with Howie Kendrick in the cleanup spot for the foreseeable future.

Hamilton (shoulder) could return as the designated hitter as early as Wednesday, the Los Angeles Times reports.

Hamilton, who will miss his 11th straight game Monday night, was very encouraged by a recent workout and believes he may be ready to return Wednesday. "Hopefully this is a breakthrough day for him as far as his health," Manager Mike Scioscia said. "His workout was incredible. He was running well and swinging the bat great. There's no doubt he's close to being able to DH." Scioscia indicated that Hamilton will still be evaluated on a day-to-day basis. Even if Hamilton does return Wednesday, it would likely be at least another week before he's able to play the field, as he's yet to resume throwing. "There's no pain � it's just a little sore and tight � but it's all good," Hamilton said. "It's definitely moving in the right direction. If I do tomorrow what I did today and it feels good the next day, I wouldn't see a problem playing Wednesday night, at least as a DH."

As expected, Hamilton will remain out Saturday and manager Mike Scioscia acknowledged Friday that he's "unsure" of the slugger's status for the rest of the season.

Hamilton (shoulder) will be out "the next couple games" according to manager Mike Scioscia,'s Alden Gonzalez reports.

Hamilton received two cortisone shots in his right shoulder Wednesday, so it's not surprising to see him set to miss a few days of action. There's still a chance he returns Saturday or Sunday against the Astros, but it will depend on how his body responds to the treatment. Even if the soreness keeps him out for the entire weekend series, the team remains confident that he'll return at some point during the regular season.

Hamilton received two cortisone shots in his shoulder Tuesday, and is expected to miss the remainder of the series against the Rangers, Mike DiGiovanna of the Los Angeles Times reports.

Hamilton hasn't been in the starting lineup since he was scratched Sunday due to neck and shoulder stiffness, and it looks like he'll miss at least another day or two. Depending on how his body responds to the treatment, he should return to the Angels' outfield at some point during the upcoming three-game series against the Astros. Colin Cowgill should continue to see additional reps in Hamilton's stead.

Hamilton (shoulder) is not in the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Rangers, according to Mike DiGiovanna of the LA Times.

Hamilton will miss his sixth straight game Wednesday. Manager Mike Scioscia said Tuesday that Hamilton's shoulder is not showing much improvement, so it wouldn't be surprising to see him miss a few more games as well. Expect Collin Cowgill to continue serving as the Angels' regular left fielder until Hamilton is able to return.
