SEATTLE (AP) - Los Angeles Angels outfielder Josh Hamilton will be sidelined for six-to-eight weeks because of a torn ligament in his left thumb that needs surgery.

The 2010 AL MVP Hamilton was injured during Tuesday night's game against Seattle during a headfirst slide into first base.

Los Angeles said an MRI Wednesday revealed a complete tear of the thumb's ulnar collateral ligament, and hand and wrist specialist Dr. Steven Shin will operate at Kerlan-Jobe Orthopedics in Los Angeles.

Hamilton was placed on the 15-day disabled list, and outfielder J.B. Shuck was recalled from Triple-A Salt Lake.
