GOODYEAR, Ariz. -- Billy Hamilton tweaked his left hamstring stealing a base last Friday and has been held out of Cactus League activity the last few days.
"He's not ready. Not ready," manager Dusty Baker said. "For a guy who depends on his legs, you don't want to take a chance with this being a chronic thing all year. Guys who run that fast are usually going to have something."
Hamilton was a full participant in Wednesday morning's workout and showed no hitch in his giddy-up walking around the clubhouse. He indicated that the injury is not the least bit serious.
Asked when he might be back in games, Hamilton said, "No idea. Shouldn't be long."
