It was pretty obvious down the stretch last season that there was something wrong with Los Angeles Angels‘ outfielder Josh Hamilton.
What began in September as shoulder stiffness for Hamilton, traveled into his neck and back. He recieved every kind of treatment from from cortisone shots to trigger point injections to chiropractic therapy.
Nothing worked. and after missing 11 straight games due to irritation of the acromioclavicular joint of his right (non-throwinJosh Hamilton to have surgery, out 6-8 weeks) shoulder, the pain traveled into Hamilton’s chest as he worked out with the team.
He played in just one of the Angels final 23 games of the season and choked in the American League Division Series going 0-13.
