Angels right fielder Josh Hamilton will miss a second straight game due to inflammation in his right ankle tonight. An MRI performed on the ankle Tuesday revealed the inflammation, a diagnosis that Hamilton thinks will allow him to avoid the disabled list.
“None,” Hamilton said when asked if he had any concerns that the injury could linger long term. “Should be good in a couple days.”
Hamilton said he might get an injection tonight to calm the inflammation.
In Hamilton’s absence, Collin Cowgill is starting his second game in right field with the Angels, and second baseman Howie Kendrick is batting fourth again.
Hamilton said he still has no idea how he sustained the injury.
“I woke up,” he said.
