Former Texas Rangers pitcher C.J. Wilson and former Texas Rangers outfielder Josh Hamilton are seeming to have caught the Texas Rangers injury bug. Wilson was hit on the left side of the head with a comebacker that he threw, while Hamilton was seen walking around camp on crutches due to a strained left calf, HardBall talk is reporting today.
Wilson was joking about the comebacker on Twitter.
Resisting urge to misspell everything as a joke…

He was taken to have some test run as a precaution, and I think there is nothing wrong with being careful when it comes to players getting hit in the head with a baseball. Hopefully Wilson will be alright so that the Texas Rangers can score a whole lot of runs off of him this coming season.
Josh Hamilton is having a sore calf issue, and just like with Texas Rangers camp, there is no need to push a guy this early in camp. This seems to be one more in a long list of strange Josh Hamilton injuries that goes back to the fact that he couldn’t bat with the Texas Rangers when he quit dipping to the weird eye/allergy issues he had for the Angels last season. We all know that Hamilton tends to have some strange injuries at some strange times, and I fell like he will be okay once the season gets underway.
At least we can take heart in knowing that Texas Rangers players are not the only players having injuries this spring training. We are all just hoping that the Texas Rangers issues will stop happening very soon!
