Josh Hamilton to Return After All-Star Break

We won't see Josh Hamilton again until late July

Josh Hamilton thanks you for drafting him so early.

The Texas Rangers outfielder will sit out for the next 5-7 weeks after undergoing surgery today to repair a partial tear in an abdominal muscle. Hamilton, injured May 17th after making a leaping catch and crashing into an outfield wall against the Los Angeles Angels, landed on the disabled list last week.

Sadly, he won't be enjoying a longball rematch against Justin Morneau this year, after the Minnesota Twins first baseman stole the Home Run Derby crown from him during last season's All-Star festivities.

Morneau would win it again anyways. Jason Bay has a shot though this year!
