Rangers outfielder Josh Hamilton will join the club on Monday, Jeff Wilson of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram reports. Since joining the Rangers from the Angels in a late-April transaction, the 34-year-old has been playing with Double-A Frisco and Triple-A Round Rock. In 46 combined plate appearances at both levels, Hamilton has hit .364/.391/.545 with one home run and six RBI.

Hamilton underwent shoulder surgery in February and later admitted to relapsing into cocaine use, which created some tension between him and the Angels’ front office, including GM Jerry DiPoto and owner Arte Moreno.
