Los Angeles Angels outfielder Josh Hamilton remains out of the lineup on Monday. Hamilton has been dealing with discomfort in his neck and shoulder for a week now.
While Hamilton received injects on Sunday to help, he is not quite ready to rejoin the lineup. Collin Cowgill is listed as the Angels left fielder for today’s game against the Cleveland Indians.
The Angels have also purchased the contract of minor leaguer Jairo Diaz from Double-A Arkansas. With a fastball in the upper-90s the 23-year-old could be a nice addition to the bullpen to close out the season. In 32 2/3 innings with Arkansas he had a 2.20 ERA and a 48/10 K/BB ratio.
