Josh Hamilton is dealing with tightness in the back of his left knee.
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
Korean slugger Byung-ho Park is reportedly traveling to Minnesota to talk with the Twins.
With a $12.85M winning bid, the Twins now have 30 days to negotiate a contract with Park and his agent. If they don't, they will be refunded the money and Park will return to the KBO. The Korean slugger batted .343/.436/.714 with 53 home runs last season for the Nexen Heroes and hit 52 the year before. The KBO is notoriously hitter-friendly, so take those numbers with a grain of salt. He should still be able to hit for power, but given the dimensions of Target Field, 25 home runs is more of a realistic expectation. Analysis: Howard Bender
