A month and a day after being re-acquired by the Rangers, Hamilton was set Thursday night for his first home game in Texas since the 2012 season.
The best moments of Josh Hamilton’s career occurred in Texas with the Rangers. He hopes to add more in his homecoming.
Carlos Santana capped and eight-run third inning with a three-run homer, leading the Cleveland Indians past Texas 12-3 on Wednesday to end the Rangers’ seven-game winning streak.
Mitch Moreland hit a tiebreaking homer in the eighth inning, and the Rangers beat the Indians by a score of 4-3 on Tuesday night for their seventh consecutive victory.
Texas Rangers first baseman Prince Fielder is among the league leaders in batting average, hits, and RBI. Fans haven’t taken notice.
“I don’t think 40,000 people came to see him ump tonight.”
“It was good to get the first at-bat out of the way, I was a little nervous up there,” Josh Hamilton said after the Rangers got a 10-8 victory over the Indians on Monday.
Adam Rosales hit a two-run homer, Yovani Gallardo won for the second time since mid-April, and the Rangers beat the Yankees by a score of 5-2 on Sunday night.
Right-hander Jared Burton has agreed to a minor league contract with the Texas Rangers and will report Tuesday to Triple-A Round Rock. The 33-year-old Burton was 0-1 with a 4.50 ERA in four appearances this year…
Josh Hamilton is done with his personal spring training and ready to rejoin the Texas Rangers. The slugger flew to Cleveland Sunday to meet the team for the start of a three-game series against the Indians.
Everyone likes to grab the hot rookies in fantasy baseball, but the truth is, only a few of them really stay productive over the course of the full season. Sometimes, investing in the veteran coming off the disabled list is a good idea, if you’re willing to risk the possibility of more injury later on.
The Texas Rangers have put first baseman/outfielder Kyle Blanks on the 15-day disabled list and recalled outfielder Jake Smolinski from Triple-A Round Rock.
