July 1 12:34 PM PT1:34 PM MT2:34 PM CT3:34 PM ET15:34 ET19:34 GMT3:34 12:34 PM MST2:34 PM EST3:04 PM VEN23:34 UAE2:34 PM CT-Hamilton hit two singles in his return Tuesday night.
Analysis: The free-swinging slugger was sidelined since May 31 with a strained left hamstring. "I am trying to barrel on the ball. You start from there" Hamilton said. "Once you start from there, you try to put a little extra into it if you need to. Overall, I felt good with my at-bats. It was a good night overall."
June 2 3:38 PM PT4:38 PM MT5:38 PM CT6:38 PM ET18:38 ET22:38 GMT6:38 3:38 PM MST5:38 PM EST6:08 PM VEN2:38 UAE (+1)5:38 PM CT-Hamilton says he's "good to go" and expects to be activated from the disabled list by the Texas Rangers on Tuesday.
Analysis: Hamilton has been on the DL since June 4 with a strained left hamstring. The outfielder was with the Rangers on Monday, but was told he was sitting out the opener of a four-game series against the Orioles.
June 1 7:57 AM PT8:57 AM MT9:57 AM CT10:57 AM ET10:57 ET14:57 GMT22:57 7:57 AM MST9:57 AM EST10:27 AM VEN18:57 UAE9:57 AM CT-Hamilton had a pinch-hit, two-run double with two outs in the bottom of the ninth inning Sunday for a 4-3 victory over the Boston Red Sox.
Analysis: Hamilton was pinch-hitting for Adam Rosales, who had earlier replaced Adrian Beltre after the third baseman sprained and cut his left thumb sliding in the fifth inning.
May 30 1:27 PM PT2:27 PM MT3:27 PM CT4:27 PM ET16:27 ET20:27 GMT4:27 1:27 PM MST3:27 PM EST3:57 PM VEN0:27 UAE (+1)3:27 PM CT-Hamilton homered in his first two at-bats, his first homers since he belatedly began his major league season this week back with Texas, helping the Rangers beat the Boston Red Sox 7-4 on Friday.
Analysis: Hamilton, who starred for Texas from 2008-12 but struggled the last two season with the Los Angeles Angels, said the home runs gave him a sense of relief. The homers came in the second and fourth innings, on pitches measured at 74 and 66 mph so he still needs to prove he can hit some old-fashioned gas.
May 27 11:24 AM PT12:24 PM MT1:24 PM CT2:24 PM ET14:24 ET18:24 GMT2:24 11:24 AM MST1:24 PM EST1:54 PM VEN22:24 UAE1:24 PM CT-Hamilton is still searching for his first hit.
Analysis: Hamilton went 0 for 4 on Tuesday so who knows when the elusive first hit will come.
May 25 10:54 AM PT11:54 AM MT12:54 PM CT1:54 PM ET13:54 ET17:54 GMT1:54 10:54 AM MST12:54 PM EST1:24 PM VEN21:54 UAE12:54 PM CT-For the first time in three years, Hamilton's name is in the Texas Rangers' lineup. He is playing left field and batting fifth for Monday's game against the Cleveland Indians.
Analysis: The 2010 AL MVP is making his season debut after shoulder surgery in February. His return comes after Texas acquired him from the Los Angeles Angels on April 27. Hamilton went to extended spring training in Arizona the day after the deal and spent the past two weeks playing 12 games in the minors. He was activated from the 15-day disabled list Monday.
May 23 4:55 PM PT5:55 PM MT6:55 PM CT7:55 PM ET19:55 ET23:55 GMT7:55 4:55 PM MST6:55 PM EST7:25 PM VEN3:55 UAE (+1)6:55 PM CT-Hamilton says he has been picking up the pace in the minor leagues and is closer to his first game back with the Texas Rangers. That could come as early as Monday, when the Rangers open a three-game series at Cleveland.
Analysis: Before Triple-A Round Rock's scheduled game Saturday night, Hamilton said he likes where he's playing now but is excited about getting back to the major leagues. He was waiting to hear from the Rangers on what was planned for him. Hamilton says he's happy with how he feels after offseason shoulder surgery and his own version of spring training. The Rangers reacquired the 2010 AL MVP in a trade from the Los Angeles Angels nearly on April 27.
May 20 8:42 AM PT9:42 AM MT10:42 AM CT11:42 AM ET11:42 ET15:42 GMT23:42 8:42 AM MST10:42 AM EST11:12 AM VEN19:42 UAE10:42 AM CT-Hamilton is headed back to Triple-A Round Rock before rejoining the Texas Rangers. He is on the disabled list after offseason shoulder surgery.
Analysis: Hamilton will then be re-evaluated, and could be back with the Rangers for a three-game series that starts Monday at Cleveland.
May 17 1:17 PM PT2:17 PM MT3:17 PM CT4:17 PM ET16:17 ET20:17 GMT4:17 1:17 PM MST3:17 PM EST3:47 PM VEN0:17 UAE (+1)3:17 PM CT-Texas general manager Jon Daniels said Sunday that Hamilton is ''clearly making progress'' in the slugger's personal spring training since being re-acquired three weeks ago in a trade from the Los Angeles Angles.
Analysis: The 2010 AL MVP and a five-time All-Star, Hamilton had shoulder surgery in February and didn't go to spring training with the Angels. He spent five days with Triple-A Round Rock before reporting to Double-A Frisco on Saturday, when he went 4 for 5 with four runs scored and an RBI.
May 16 5:48 PM PT6:48 PM MT7:48 PM CT8:48 PM ET20:48 ET0:48 GMT8:48 5:48 PM MST7:48 PM EST8:18 PM VEN4:48 UAE (+1)7:48 PM CT-Hamilton says he was rejected several times when he tried to speak to Angels owner Arte Moreno during the slugger's disappointing two-year stint in Los Angeles.
Analysis: Hamilton says he was turned away by general manager Jerry DiPoto or team president John Carpino. The comments from Hamilton came on the day he reported to Double-A Frisco for what figures to be his final rehabilitation assignment before returning to the majors with Texas.
May 14 1:31 PM PT2:31 PM MT3:31 PM CT4:31 PM ET16:31 ET20:31 GMT4:31 1:31 PM MST3:31 PM EST4:01 PM VEN0:31 UAE (+1)3:31 PM CT-Hamilton has joined Double-A Frisco on the next step in his path back to the major leagues.
Analysis: Hamilton was set to bat third and play center field on Saturday. He is expected to play at least four games for the Texas League team. Hamilton hasn't played in the majors this season. The former AL MVP had shoulder surgery in February and was traded by the Los Angeles Angels back to Texas in late April.
Apr. 25 12:10 AM PT1:10 AM MT2:10 AM CT3:10 AM ET3:10 ET7:10 GMT15:10 12:10 AM MST2:10 AM EST2:40 AM VEN11:10 UAE2:10 AM CT-Hamilton is back with the Texas Rangers.
Analysis: After two troublesome years with the Los Angeles Angels and less than halfway through a $125 million, five-year contract, Hamilton was traded to AL West rival Texas with cash on Monday for a player to be named or cash. The Angels are expected to pay most of the remaining $80.2 million Hamilton is owed. Hamilton never reported to the Angels this season after offseason right shoulder surgery. He self-reported a relapse of alcohol and cocaine use.
Feb. 25 3:37 PM PT4:37 PM MT5:37 PM CT6:37 PM ET18:37 ET23:37 GMT7:37 4:37 PM MST6:37 PM EST7:07 PM VEN3:37 UAE (+1)5:37 PM CT-Los Angeles Angels owner Arte Moreno isn't certain Hamilton will play for the team again after his latest relapse into substance abuse.
Analysis: Moreno also says the 33-year-old outfielder's contract contains language protecting the team against a relapse by Hamilton, apparently contradicting his previous statements.
Feb. 3 4:21 PM PT5:21 PM MT6:21 PM CT7:21 PM ET19:21 ET0:21 GMT8:21 5:21 PM MST7:21 PM EST7:51 PM VEN4:21 UAE (+1)6:21 PM CT-Hamilton says his body feels good and he's glad to be in a clubhouse again, though he isn't sure how long it will be before he rejoins the Texas Rangers. Before his third game for Triple-A Round Rock on Tuesday night, his first game in Texas since being reacquired by the Rangers two weeks ago, Hamilton said ''it's going to be a little bit of a process'' seeing pitches and trying to get the timing right with his swing.
Analysis: Round Rock was back home after the 2010 AL MVP and five-time All-Star played for the Express the previous two days at Nashville. Hamilton, who had offseason shoulder surgery, spent time in extended spring training in Arizona after the Rangers got him back from the Los Angeles Angels in a trade April 27.
