AL MVP Josh Hamilton remains hospitalized while showing signs of improvement in a bout with pneumonia.

In a statement Wednesday, the Texas Rangers said Hamilton "is showing significant improvement" but remained at the hospital for treatment "in order to accelerate his full recovery."

The team said Hamilton is expected to be released by the weekend and should be able to resume his conditioning and baseball activities within a few days after his release.

Hamilton was diagnosed Monday with an early case of pneumonia. The Rangers disclosed his condition Tuesday.

Hamilton hit a majors-leading .359 with 32 homers and 100 RBIs last season for the AL champion Rangers.
