Hamilton back in Rangers camp, knee exam shows no damage

🕐 1 min read

SURPRISE, Ariz. (AP) – Josh Hamilton is back at the Rangers spring training camp in Arizona after an examination in Texas showed no structural damage to his surgically repaired left knee.

Hamilton said Thursday he got concerned when he felt a sudden pain when doing some running drills during the first full-squad workout two days earlier.

The 35-year-old slugger was examined Wednesday in Houston by Dr. Walt Lowe, who performed surgery last June. That was Hamilton’s third knee operation in 10 months, and the 10th of his career.

After a platelet-rich plasma injection in his knee, Hamilton hopes to resumes hitting by Monday. He said his confidence hasn’t wavered.

Hamilton, the 2010 AL MVP, is in camp with a minor league contract after not playing in the majors last season.
