Josh Hamilton will go through an early batting practice prior to Tuesday's game and return to the starting lineup.
Hamilton asked Angels' manager Mike Scoscia for Sunday off to get his head straight. He sat out Monday, but is expected to rejoin the lineup Tuesday. He's been a great disappointment yet again, slashing a pedestrian .266/.339/.414 with just eight home runs. ANALYST:
Jake Marisnick was 2-for-4 with a double and a run scored on Thursday night against the Royals.
Jake Marisnick had two hits from the bottom of the order which included a double and a run scored in Houston’s 5 -2 win over Kansas City on Thursday night. His double in the second inning with two outs kept the inning alive and Marisnick scored on a single by Jose Altuve before Yordano Ventura left the game after a rain delay in the second inning. Although Marisnick struggled in the second half, he did finish September/October with a .275 average with three home runs and seven stolen bases. Analysis: Greg Jewett
