Josh Hamilton, a fantastic slugger and outfielder for the Texas Rangers, was hospitalized earlier this week after being diagnosed with an early case of pneumonia. The Rangers have issued a statement today stating that the 29-year-old is on a significant road to recovery and is showing good signs of improvement. Well, that’s good news!
The AL MVP is still undergoing treatment for his condition in order to speed up his full recovery from pneumonia, but the club does expect him to be released from the hospital by this weekend. Once released, it should only be a few days before the slugger is back up and going full speed with all his baseball activities including conditioning.
Hamilton posted a batting average of .359 throughout the 2010 MLB season with the Rangers securing 32 homers and 100 RBIs. He had a very impressive year last year and needs to get better soon to have an even better year this year! C’mon 2011!
