Josh Hamilton is Headed to the DL

The defending American League Champion Texas Rangers will be with-out their All-Star Center-fielder in Josh Hamilton for the next few weeks as he suffered a broken bone during today’s 5 to 4 loss to Detroit. Hamilton injured the shoulder when he attempted to score from third base on a pop up along the Detroit dugout between home plate and third base. The pop up had left home plate momentarily uncovered and Hamilton dashed for the plate as catcher Victor Martinez raced to receive a throw on the run from third baseman Brandon Inge. Martinez caught the ball and lunged to tag Hamilton, who dove head-first into the plate.

Rangers general manager Jon Daniels said an MRI exam Tuesday afternoon of Josh Hamilton’s injured right shoulder revealed a broken bone at the top of his shoulder. The Rangers plan to place Hamilton on the DL and expect him to miss at least six weeks, but are planning for eight.

According to Daniels the Ranger’s will most likely recall INF Chris Davis from Triple-A-Round Rock to fill Hamilton’s roster spot.
