Josh Hamilton activated from DL

Baltimore, MD ( - Prior to Tuesday's contest, the Texas Rangers activated outfielder Josh Hamilton from the 15-day disabled list.


Hamilton went to the DL with a strained left hamstring back on June 4 and was expected to miss four weeks due to the injury.


Texas acquired Hamilton from the Angels on April 27 while he was still on the disabled list recovering from offseason shoulder surgery. He was activated on May 25 and has hit a respectable .273 with two homers and five RBI in seven games.


To make room on the roster, Texas sent outfielder Joey Gallo to Triple-A Round Rock. Gallo batted .218 with five homers and 13 RBI over 25 games this season in the majors.
