Josh Hamilton Eying Return From Injury In 2-3 Weeks

It was back on April 12 that Rangers superstar Josh Hamilton injured himself sliding into home plate. The initial timeline for his return from a fractured humerus was 6-8 weeks, and now, just over three weeks later, Hamilton says he's only 2-3 weeks away.

Anthony Andro:

"Two to three weeks," Hamilton said. "The biggest thing is just letting the bone heal. That's what is holding me back. Physically, running around and throwing is fine."

Hamilton's lately been taking some light swings that've gone incident-free, so he's clearly getting closer. And that has to be a great relief for Rangers fans who've watched their team lose 14 of its last 22 games. With Hamilton, the lineup posted an OPS of .848. Since Hamilton's injury, the lineup's posted an OPS of .732. That isn't all explained by Hamilton's absence, of course, but he's left a gaping hole that David Murphy simply couldn't be expected to fill.
