Player Notes
Josh Hamilton is flying to Houston and is likely to undergo another surgery on his left knee Monday.

Advice: The procedure is expected to "only" be of the arthroscopic variety, but it will be his fourth on the knee over the last year. The Rangers will continue to give Hamilton a chance to rehab and compete for a roster spot, but he just can't get his body to cooperate anymore. There's a pretty good chance the former MVP has played his last major league game.

Josh Hamilton has no new structural damage in his surgically-repaired left knee.

Advice: Hamilton was flown to Houston on Wednesday for a thorough examination of the knee after experiencing a tweak while running Tuesday in Rangers camp. It's just some minor discomfort, but the veteran slugger won't participate in workouts for at least a couple days. He's a poor bet to stay healthy and productive in 2017.

Josh Hamilton will have his left knee examined in Houston on Wednesday after feeling something while running on Tuesday.

Advice: It's the same knee which required surgery to repair an ACL injury and arterial and meniscus cartilage last June. We should know more about his status soon, but this is obviously a troubling development. Hamilton, 35, didn't play at all in the majors last season and has appeared in just 139 games dating back to the start of 2014. He's in camp as a non-roster invitee this spring, but this could be the end of the line for him if he suffered another significant injury.

According to T.R. Sullivan of MLB.com, Josh Hamilton has been hitting thunderous bombs in batting practice at Rangers camp.

Advice: Hamilton is in camp with Texas as a non-roster invitee, trying to carve out a DH/1B role. Sullivan says the veteran slugger has been reaching the street beyond the Rangers' complex with some of his moonshots, and farm director Jayce Tingler offered that "it's just a different sound." We'll see if Hamilton can hold up physically.
