Josh Hamilton went 2-for-4 with a double and three RBI against the White Sox on Sunday.
Hamilton had his third-straight multi-hit game and is batting .667 (8-for-12) over his last three games with four RBI and two runs scored. Since returning from the disabled list, he's hit safely in four of his six games and has put to rest any doubts that his thumb injury is any sort of an issue. Of course, that's right now and we'll check back after a month's worth of wear and tear before casting our final ballot. In the meantime though, continue to roll with him and enjoy the production.

The Red Sox are looking for an opportunity to give Brian Johnson his major league debut.
Johnson has a 2.92 ERA and 8.76 K/9 over 49 1/3 innings here in his first go-around with Triple-A Pawtucket. While the Red Sox would like to give him a taste of the majors, they'd obviously prefer to have a stronger rotation and not need to dip into their farm system as much as they have already. Steven Wright and Eduardo Rodriguez are getting a look right now. Should they fail and the struggles at the back end of the rotation continue, then perhaps we'll see Johnson at some point.
