Player Notes
Josh Hamilton isn't giving up hope of regaining his spot as the Rangers' regular left fielder by the end of the season.

Advice: Hamilton was activated from the disabled list Tuesday, but he's limited to pinch-hitting duties for the time being because of ongoing soreness in his left knee. However, he still thinks there's a chance the condition of his knee improves enough to allow him to return to left field. "I know I can make an impact pinch hitting, but at the same time I can be more a bigger impact if I had four at-bats in a game," said Hamilton. "I haven’t flipped that switch yet to say OK, this is going to be my role. Probably over the next week I’ll continue to try to figure some things out with the knee." For now, the Rangers are going with Will Venable as their regular left fielder, with Joey Gallo also possibly in the mix.

Rangers activated OF Josh Hamilton from the 15-day disabled list.

Advice: Hamilton can hit and throw without any issues, but he's not able to run without pain and thus is expected be limited to pinch-hitting duty down the stretch. Will Venable will continue to serve as the Rangers' left fielder.

Tue, Sep 1 Rotoworld
The Rangers expect to use Josh Hamilton (knee) only as a pinch-hitter during the final month of the season.

Advice: Hamilton can hit and throw without any issues, but he remains unable to run without experiencing discomfort in his left knee. It's possible he'll require surgery over the offseason. The Rangers acquired Will Venable earlier this month as protection for Hamilton and he's now slated to serve as the club's regular left fielder down the stretch.

Josh Hamilton (knee) has yet to be cleared to resume running.

Advice: Hamilton is taking batting practice and playing catch with no issues, but his left knee remains too sore to run on. He will be activated from the disabled list on Tuesday but could be limited to pinch-hitting initially. "It feels OK to throw and hit on the knee," he said. "I just haven’t gotten to the important part where I can run or jog. That’s the next step."

Josh Hamilton (knee) took batting practice on Friday.

Advice: Hamilton has been on the shelf for the last couple weeks with a nagging left knee ailment but finally appears to be making some progress. He could be activated from the disabled list as soon as Monday, although the Rangers could easily wait until Tuesday when rosters expand.
