Josh Hamilton Will Take Live BP This Week

The Angels’ offense has been pretty darn good even without Josh Hamilton, but they’re a step toward getting him back anyway.

The Orange County Register reports that Hamilton is supposed to take live batting practice this week.

Hamilton, you’ll recall, needed surgery in mid-April for a torn ulnar collateral ligament in his left thumb and is likely to miss another 3-4 weeks, but actual baseball stuff like this is a step in the right direction.

The Angels currently have the #3 offensive in all of baseball, as they’ve scored 159 runs in just 30 games played, smashing 40 home runs along the way.
