Josh Hamilton is not in the Rangers' lineup Wednesday.

Advice: The Rangers are saying he's healthy, so it appears this is just Hamilton being eased back into things. The club is going with Ryan Rua in left field and Leonys Martin in center Wednesday.

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

Advice: Hamilton went 4-for-12 (.333) with a double and three RBI over four rehab games between Double-A Frisco and Triple-A Round Rock. His hamstring isn't back to 100 percent quite yet, but he's going to try to manage it. The Rangers have talked about using Hamilton in center field, but he's playing left field in his return Tuesday.

The Rangers are considering using Josh Hamilton (hamstring) in center field when he's activated from the disabled list Tuesday.

Advice: Evan Grant of the Dallas Morning News notes that the club is "desperate for offense from center field" with Leonys Martin in a 3-for-43 slump. It's unclear whether the Rangers are considering using him regularly or just part-time at the position. Hamilton hasn't played center regularly since 2012 but said that he's "absolutely" ready for the position after playing the last two games of his rehab assignment there. If he does settle into center field full-time, it would obviously be bad news for Martin. It could, however, be good news for Joey Gallo, who might be used as the regular left fielder in that case.

Josh Hamilton (hamstring) will not be activated from the disabled list on Monday.

Advice: Hamilton will be reevaluated Tuesday. He's looked good during his rehab with Double-A Frisco and Triple-A Round Rock and should be back in the majors later this week. In the mean time, the Rangers will have to decide what to do with power-hitting rookie Joey Gallo.

The Rangers are expected to activate Josh Hamilton (hamstring) from the disabled list on Monday or Tuesday.

Advice: A strained hamstring sidelined Hamilton for close to a month. He went 4-for-12 with three RBI in four rehab games for Double-A Frisco and Triple-A Round Rock. With Hamilton back in the lineup, the Rangers may have to get creative in the way they use Joey Gallo. He's been filling in at left field the past few weeks.
