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.
