ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) - The Texas Rangers have activated All-Star center fielder Josh Hamilton from the 15-day disabled list and sent first baseman Chris Davis to Triple-A Oklahoma City.
Hamilton went on the disabled list June 2 and had abdominal surgery a week later. He went 4 for 27 in six minor league rehab games.
Hamilton returned one day after it was announced he was voted a starter for the All-Star game next week in St. Louis.
Davis is hitting .202 with 15 homers, 33 RBIs and a major league-worst 114 strikeouts. Hank Blalock will replace him at first base after being used mostly as the designated hitter.
The Rangers were scheduled to open a key three-game set against the Los Angeles Angels on Monday night.
