Josh Hamilton is suffering from migraine headaches and the Texas Rangers’ slugger is day to day.
Craig Gentry, a candidate to be the Rangers’ starting center fielder, and first baseman Mitch Moreland are among the last eight players who have agreed to 2012 contracts with Texas.
The defending American League Champion Texas Rangers enter Spring Training with very few holes to fill in their roster.
Josh Hamilton and Adrian Beltre hit long home runs and Craig Gentry had an inside-the-park homer for AL West-leading Texas in a 5-3 victory over Seattle on Friday night that cut the Rangers’ magic number to one.
C.J. Wilson scattered five singles over eight shutout innings, and the Rangers beat Oakland 8-1 to eliminate the Athletics from playoff contention.
Derek Holland allowed two hits in seven innings and got his usual strong support as the Texas Rangers hit three homers and beat the Boston Red Sox 10-0 on Friday night.
Rangers outfielder Craig Gentry has been reinstated from the DL. Darren O’Day was optioned to Round Rock to make room on the roster.
The move was made before Thursday’s game against Minnesota, four days after Gentry got hurt. Because that move can’t be retroactive, the earliest he can return is Aug. 4.
