Rangers ready to send Josh Hamilton to Triple-A

8 Comments

After spending some time in Arizona at the Rangers’ extended spring training complex Josh Hamilton is ready to start playing at Triple-A.

Jeff Wilson of the Forth Worth Star Telegram reports that Hamilton could join Triple-A Round Rock as soon as Sunday, beginning what figures to be a multi-week stint there.

Hamilton is on the disabled list following February shoulder surgery and the Angels traded him to the Rangers while eating the majority of his remaining contract after a setback with his sobriety.

Based on various quotes from Rangers officials Hamilton’s surgically repaired shoulder is basically healed, but he simply needs to get game reps after not playing since October.
