Hamilton has small fracture in ribs….status unknown
Report Tuesday morning from general manager Jon Daniels on Josh Hamilton:
“Josh saw Dr. Watkins this morning out here in CA. Dr. Watkins had given Josh a CT scan and a spec scan yesterday and another CT scan today. He diagnosed a small stable fracture in the 7th and 8th ribs, that previous tests (2 x-rays and an MRI) had not picked up.
“Dr. Watkins gave Josh an anti-inflammatory injection at the site of the discomfort, and an epidural nerve-block injection for pain management. It is typically 48-72 hours before it’s known whether this treatment has the desired effect. Once the discomfort recedes to a point where Josh is comfortable, he can return to baseball activities. “
