Texas Rangers center fielder Josh Hamilton left morning workouts Wednesday after bruising his shoulder.
Hamilton was diagnosed with a left shoulder contusion after he dived to catch a ball during a pop-up drill. No MRI is scheduled and the 29-year-old is listed as day-to-day.
Hamilton was limited to 89 games last year by an assortment of injuries including a strained rib cage muscle, partially torn abdominal muscle and pinched nerve in his lower back. He hit .268 with 10 homers and 54 RBIs a year after hitting 32 home runs and leading the AL with 130 RBIs.
