Rangers’ Hamilton out for four weeks
Josh Hamilton will be out four weeks because of a strained left hamstring, an injury that sidelined him only seven games into his return to the Texas Rangers.
The Rangers slugger missed the last two games while getting treatment for an injury that he says was probably aggravated when he had a game-winning double as a pinch-hitter Sunday. Hamilton said he felt nagging groin and hamstring issues while on minor league rehab assignments before returning to the majors.
