Josh Hamilton's rehab heads to Triple-A
Josh Hamilton will continue his minor league rehab assignment at Triple-A Round Rock beginning Friday, the team announced.
Hamilton, who has been on the disabled list since sustaining a hairline fracture of his right humerus bone while sliding home April 12 in Detroit, was 0-for-3 with a walk, RBI, and two runs scored in his second game as DH on minor league rehab assignment Thursday at Double-A Frisco.
In two games with Frisco, Hamilton was 2-for-7 with a homer and three RBIs.
Hamilton is expected to be the DH for Round Rock in this weekend’s home series against Colorado Springs.
Nelson Cruz is also expected to play in Round Rock this weekend to continue his rehab assignment and play right field. He was placed on the 15-day disabled list May 7 (retroactive to May 4) with a strained right quadriceps muscle.
