ARLINGTON, TEXAS (AP) - American League MVP Josh Hamilton is out of the hospital.

The Texas Rangers said in a statement that their slugging outfielder was discharged Sunday afternoon from the Medical Center of Arlington, five days after he was admitted for treatment of an early case of pneumonia.

The team statement says Hamilton should be able to resume his conditioning and baseball activities within a few days.

Hamilton was diagnosed Monday with an early case of pneumonia and was hospitalized Tuesday morning. The Rangers said Sunday that he remained hospitalized for the rest of the week “to receive complete rest and accelerate his full recovery.”

Hamilton hit a majors-leading .359 with 32 homers and 100 RBIs last season for the AL champion Rangers.
