Hamilton's Return Put on Hold

ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) - Josh Hamilton's return to the Texas Rangers has been put on hold.

Rangers manager Ron Washington said Friday night that the All-Star center fielder will play at least one more rehab game for Triple-A Oklahoma City as he attempts to come back from abdominal surgery.

Hamilton was supposed to play the outfield Friday night at Iowa. After a rain delay, he went 0 for 5 as the designated hitter.

"Hamilton was the DH because of the weather in Iowa," Washington said. "He'll be in the outfield (Saturday)."

Hamilton, who also played one game with Double-A Frisco, is 2 for 20 in four minor-league games.

He went on the disabled list June 1 and had surgery eight days later.
