Rangers place Josh Hamilton on 15-day DL with knee inflammation
Hamilton did not start the last four games. His stint on the disabled list is retroactive to Sunday, which means he would be eligible to return as early as Aug. 31. This is Hamilton's second stint on the disabled list since rejoining the Rangers in April.
An MRI on Friday showed no structural damage to his knee, but the possibility of surgery in the off-season was not discarded.
Hamilton is hitting .254 on the year with six home runs and 21 RBIs in 38 games. The Rangers find themselves four games behind the Houston Astros in the American League West entering Thursday.
