Five-time All-Star Josh Hamilton has been out for five games with right shoulder discomfort and manager Mike Scioscia said Tuesday it doesn't appear the injury is heading in the right direction, according to a report from Mike Digiovanna of The Los Angeles Times.

The Angels are currently ahead of the Athletics for first place in the AL West, and Scioscia said that for Hamilton to sit out again in the middle of a pennant race, "you know he's hurting."

"Guys play banged up when you’re in a pennant race, so for Josh to not play, you know he’s hurting. At first blush, it doesn’t look like it’s going in the right direction today.”

The 33-year-old is batting .263 with 10 homers and 44 RBI in 88 games. The Angels play the Rangers again on Wednesday in Texas.
