ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) - Texas outfielder Josh Hamilton will be the designated hitter for Double-A Frisco, the start of his comeback from abdominal surgery.

Rangers general manager Jon Daniels said Hamilton will lead off and get as many at-bats as possible for the RoughRiders on Monday night in their last game before the Double-A All-Star break.

Hamilton will then work out with the Rangers on Tuesday. If all goes well, he will join Triple-A Oklahoma City on Wednesday and play multiple games for the RedHawks, including some in the outfield.

Daniels said it is possible that Hamilton, who has been on the disabled list all of June, could rejoin the Rangers as early as next weekend.
