Josh Hamilton back from shoulder injury

3/9/2010 - MLB Josh Hamilton Texas Rangers + more

Josh Hamilton played in his first spring game Monday after being limited by a bruised left shoulder.

Hamilton was 2 for 3 with a run scored in the Texas Rangers' 13-9 loss to the Los Angeles Angels.

The outfielder was injured when he fell down going for a popup during drills Feb. 24. He caught two fly balls in left field against the Angels.

"Body-wise, I felt good. At bat, I felt great," Hamilton said. "I felt like I really hadn't missed any time. I felt calm at the plate, I felt like I was under control, felt like I saw the ball good out of the pitcher's hand."
