Angels’ Josh Hamilton to miss 6-8 weeks due to torn ligament in thumb
Angels outfielder Josh Hamilton is expected to miss 6-8 weeks with a torn ulnar collateral ligament in his left thumb.
He hurt his thumb sliding head-first into first base during the Angels’ 5-3 loss to the Mariners on Tuesday. It’s uncertain whether Hamilton will need surgery. According to the Angels, Hamilton will be examined on Friday to see whether he requires surgery.
Hamilton update – surgery is not a certainty. He will see Dr. Shin on Friday to determine if surgery is required. #Angels
