Josh Hamilton will have surgery Tuesday morning in Philadelphia to repair a partial tear in his abdominal muscle. Hamilton will miss four to six weeks. "Given what it could have been, I think it's probably better than what some of the alternatives are," general manager Jon Daniels said. "I think this team has done a very good job of playing early in the season either without Josh or without Josh at 100 percent. We really haven't had what you expect from a healthy Josh Hamilton yet."

Thoughts on the expectations of Hamilton when he comes back? (Selfish note - the owner of him in a perennial keeper league has stated he's available)...I.e. how do these groin injuries affect a slugger's swing and power?

CBS wrote:News: Rangers slugger Josh Hamilton is already running on a treadmill and expects to resume baseball activities in about 10 days after surgery to repair of his abdominal muscle. Hamilton, who was in the clubhouse after the Rangers' 1-0 victory over Toronto on Thursday night, says he's glad the injury has been corrected and won't linger for the rest of the season. He said the surgery Tuesday in Philadelphia was routine.


They are still saying 4-6 weeks to 100 %.

ESPN wrote:Hamilton (groin/abdomen) has already started light exercises after his surgery on Monday and would like to play in the All-Star Game next month if elected, the Fort Worth Star-Telegram reports.
Spin: Hamilton intends to return in under four weeks, though he has a lot of work ahead of him before we can get to the point of projecting a return date.
