Rangers outfielder Josh Hamilton was lifted from Wednesday’s Cactus League game against the Rockies after suffering what is being called a “jammed right heel” while chasing after a double.

According to beat writer Drew Davison of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram, Hamilton was spotted icing his right foot in the clubhouse after the 6-1 loss to Colorado. The extent of the injury is not exactly known, but it’s not thought to be serious.

Hamilton, 30, batted .298/.346/.536 with 25 home runs and 94 RBI in 538 plate appearances last season. He’s currently scheduled to become a free agent five days after the conclusion of the 2012 World Series.
