Josh Hamilton is usually dealing with some type of medical issue and today it is his knee. At this point, Hamilton is going to have to play through minor aches and pains as the Angels march towards a playoff spot. They need his bat in the lineup considering that he's been quite hot over the last week. He should be fine going forward, but this is an issue worth paying attention to.Analyst: David Kerr
Boy the Angels are likely kicking themselves for the amount of money they gave to Josh Hamilton who has not lived up to the hype since he signed last year. The home run was Hamilton's 10th of the year but he still hitting just .269 and is hitting just .203 in the month of August. Analyst: Jonathan Impemba
It had been 14 games since Hamilton's last home run and the nine he's sporting on the year has been nothing short of disappointing. Even for those who waited and took him in the early-middle rounds were still expecting close to 20 on the year, but once again, injuries take their toll. Perhaps it's time we stopped drafting on name an false hope and started looking more towards reality with some of these players. If you have to say "when healthy" when describing what you'd like to see out of a player, maybe take that as a red flag.Analyst: Howard Bender
Hamilton is now 3-for-10 with two doubles and four RBI since returning to the starting lineup for the Angels after the team gave him a couple days off to clear his head. The Angles high-paid outfielder is slashing .222/.281/.361 with three home runs and 12 RBI over 108 at-bats since returning from the All-Star break as his struggles continue since moving to Hollywood. For now, fantasy owners should explore other options until he gets back on track. Analyst: Matthew Beck
