Hamilton to rejoin Rangers today
ROUND ROCK, Texas (AP) – Josh Hamilton is done with his personal spring training and ready to rejoin the Texas Rangers.
The slugger, who turned 34 Thursday, was set to fly Sunday to Cleveland to meet the team for the start of a three-game series against the Indians. The opener today is four weeks to the day after Texas finalized a trade to reacquire the 2010 AL MVP from the Los Angeles Angels.
Hamilton, who turned 34 on Thursday, was on the 15-day disabled list while recovering from right shoulder surgery on Feb. 4. He never reported to the Angels this spring after the offseason that also included his self-reported relapse with alcohol and cocaine.
