Hamilton's spring training work was essentially reset last week as he deals with right shoulder soreness stemming from a car accident early in spring training.

Hamilton had a "little setback" with his right shoulder, which was injured in a recent automobile accident, Scott Merkin of MLB.com reports.

Hamilton served up a walkoff grand slam to Jason Kipnis in Wednesday's 4-1 loss to Cleveland.
After Juan Minaya and Caleb Frare put two runners aboard with one out to begin the ninth inning, Hamilton got the call for a shot at his first big-league save.

Hamilton's high-90s fastball is still likely to make him a key part of the White Sox's 2019 bullpen plans, but the 23-year-old isn't quite ready yet to dominate major-league hitters.
