Rangers doubtful to consider Josh Hamilton reunion

MLB.com’s Alden Gonzalez wrote earlier this month that it’s unlikely Josh Hamilton will finish out his five-year, $125 million contract as a member of the Angels and that a trade may even be coming this season — in the third year of the five-year deal. But we can probably rule out a reunion with the Rangers.

Here’s the relevant part of the story from staff writer Michael Florek of the Dallas Morning News

 At Rangers Fan Fest on Saturday, general manager Jon Daniels was asked during a fan Q&A session what the chances were that Josh Hamilton would return to the Rangers.

“Small,” Daniels responded.

The response drew a laugh and then a round of applause from the crowd.

“A rather popular sentiment,” said Rangers announcer Tom Grieve, who was moderating the Q&A.

Hamilton, 33, has batted just .255 with a .741 OPS in 240 games with Anaheim. He’s owed $90.2 million.
