Player Notes
Josh Hamilton (hamstring) is expected to sit out again Wednesday.

Advice: Hamilton is dealing with some tightness in his left hamstring and will miss a second straight game. It's not viewed as a big deal, as the outfielder remains day-to-day.

Josh Hamilton is out of the Rangers' starting lineup Tuesday due to tightness in his left hamstring.

Advice: It sounds like the kind of routine soreness that comes with an extended absence from live baseball games. Hamilton has registered a 1.021 OPS in 22 at-bats since rejoining the Rangers. Consider him day-to-day.

Josh Hamilton hit a two-run double off of Koji Uehara to give the Rangers a 4-3 win on Sunday.

Advice: Hamilton was pinch-hitting for Adam Rosales in the ninth. Good move by manager Jeff Bannister, as Hamilton promptly doubled off Koji Uehara to end the game. Since being acquired by the Rangers, Hamilton is hitting .273/.385/.636 with two homers and five RBI over 22 at-bats.

Josh Hamilton hit his first two home runs of the season in Friday's 7-4 win over the Red Sox.

Advice: Hamilton launched a solo homer in the bottom of the second inning before hitting another solo blast in the fourth. It was his ninth career multi-homer game. The 34-year-old is coming off shoulder surgery and remains an injury risk, but his return to Texas puts him in a great position to be valuable in mixed fantasy leagues again.

Josh Hamilton went 2-for-4 with a double and an RBI against the Red Sox on Thursday.

Advice: The double off Eduardo Rodriguez was his first extra-base hit. Hamilton is 3-for-15 since coming off the disabled list on Monday.

Fri, May 29 Rotoworld
Josh Hamilton has a cold but is starting anyway Thursday in his return to Arlington, Texas.

Advice: Hamilton will play left field and bat fifth against the visiting Red Sox. He joked that the cold might take his mind off the nerves of returning to the stadium where he's played 348 of his 980 career major league games.

Josh Hamilton went 0-for-3 but did walk and score a run against the Indians in his return to action Monday.

Advice: Batting in the fifth spot in the lineup, Hamilton struck out in first plate appearance, walked in his second, struck out again in his third and reached on an error in his fourth. He might take some time to knock the rust off, but Hamilton is in as good a position as possible to succeed, batting in the middle of a red-hot lineup in the place where he's had his greatest accomplishments.

Thu, May 28 Rotoworld
Rangers activated OF Josh Hamilton from the 15-day disabled list.

Advice: Hamilton is starting in left field and batting fifth Monday in his first game for the Rangers since the 2012 American League Wild Card round. The 34-year-old batted .364/.391/.545 with five doubles, one home run, six RBI, and nine runs scored on his 12-game minor league rehab assignment, and he's a good bet for high-level fantasy production back with Texas. Get him active in all standard fantasy leagues.

Mon, May 25 Rotoworld
Josh Hamilton (shoulder) will start in left field for the Rangers on Monday.

Advice: He'll be activated from the disabled list on Monday and make his official return to the Rangers. Manager Jeff Banister has yet to announce where he'll hit in the batting order, but with the team's offense rolling in recent days it's unlikely he will want to disrupt the middle of the lineup. Fifth seems right.
