Josh is back!

So Josh Hamilton, pictured here on card number 483 of the 2008 Upper Deck First Edition set, is finally back in action. Josh started tonight's game against the Angels and played six innings. He went 0-for-3 at the plate but did make a very nice defensive play. The current plan calls for him to play at DH tomorrow and then put in nine innings on Sunday.

Very good to see Josh back in the lineup. Hopefully the last couple of games of the season are enough time for him to get the rust knocked off and be back in form for the post-season. The Rangers really need him to produce during the playoffs to get anywhere.

Now the next step is to get David Muprhy back on his feet and ready for the battle. Got to have all the guns on deck going into the ALDS.

Play at the Plate said...

I just got home from the game and it was nice to see Josh back out there. One scary moment came on the third batter, Abreu I think. He hit a liner to left center and Josh dove or fell and didn't get it. I was glad to see him bounce right up and keep playing. I wouldn't want him to aggravate the injury in a meaningless game.
