SEATTLE (AP) — Los Angeles Angels outfielder Josh Hamilton will be slowed the next few days because of a bone bruise on his surgically repaired left thumb. Hamilton said he was jammed on a pitch and it would have been better had his bat shattered instead of his hand absorbing the force. He's not expected to try and hit again until at least tomorrow, which marks the final game of the series against the Seattle Mariners.
