Hamilton, 30, is currently playing on a two-year contract -- he avoided arbitration in February 2011 by signing for two seasons and $24 million. He will make $13.75 million from the Rangers in 2012, but his future is unknown.

There were rumors a month ago that Hamilton's agent, Mike Moye, was sitting down for meetings with Rangers GM Jon Daniels to discuss a long-term deal, but that those talks never got very far.

Hamilton, a four-time All-Star and the 2010 American League MVP, has had a productive season on the field but a turbulent year off it. He's hitting .376 this year with 10 home runs and 28 RBIs, but the recovering alcoholic and drug addict also had a binge drinking relapse in early February of this year.
