Hamilton to miss 4-6 weeks

Rangers outfielder Josh Hamilton will miss 4-6 weeks following surgery to repair a torn abdominal muscle.

“Given what it could have been, I think it’s probably better than what some of the alternatives are,” general manager Jon Daniels said. “I think this team has done a very good job of playing early in the season either without Josh or without Josh at 100 percent. We really haven’t had what you expect from a healthy Josh Hamilton yet.”

The Rangers are 33-23 with a 4.5 game lead in the AL West. They should be fine until Hamilton gets back. And if they aren’t fine without him, then they won’t be.
