Hamilton out 2 weeks with strained calf

TEMPE, Ariz. (AP) - Los Angeles Angels outfielder Josh Hamilton will be sidelined for at least two weeks because of a strained calf muscle, and pitcher C.J. Wilson does not appear to be seriously hurt after getting struck on the head by a line drive in batting practice.

Both players were injured during a spring training workout Tuesday.

Hamilton struggled in his first season with the Angels after agreeing to a $125 million, five-year contract, hitting .250 with 21 homers and 79 RBIs. The 2010 AL MVP reported to spring training 20 pounds heavier than last year after losing about 25 pounds following the 2012 season.

Hamilton left the clubhouse on crutches Tuesday after getting hurt during a baserunning drill.

''It's something that will definitely heal on its own and it's just going to take some time and the timeframe we're getting is the minimum of a couple of weeks,'' Angels manager Mike Scioscia said Wednesday. ''As of right now we're very optimistic that he'll get back in here and he can get back in shape for the start of the season.''

Wilson, also starting his second season with the Angels. was hit by a liner off the bat of Yorvit Torrealba.

''Everything is fine, except that pitch I threw. Shoulda caught it,'' Wilson tweeted. ''Lesson is to not pitch to contact!''

Wilson, 17-7 last year, could make his exhibition debut Saturday.
