DALLAS (105.3 The Fan/AP) – The Texas Rangers have activated left-handed pitcher Cole Hamels from the disabled list and will start him Monday night against the Cleveland Indians.

Hamels will be making his first start since April 26 due to a strained right oblique.

Hamels threw 81 pitches over 5 2/3 innings in his second injury rehab start for Double-A Frisco on Wednesday.

He allowed two hits and one run while striking out five and walking two against Midland.

The left-hander is 2-0 with a 3.03 ERA in five starts this season.
