Josh Hamilton is scheduled to have an MRI Monday to see what's wrong with his midsection. Hamilton is out of the lineup today, but doesn't even want to talk about the possibility of going on the disabled list. "We'll know in the next couple of days," Hamilton said. "Right now I'm hurt and sore and can't run." The Rangers are hoping Hamilton can see a specialist today. Hamilton hasn't been right since returning from the disabled list because of a rib cage injury. He hurt his groin running into a wall, and has had soreness in his abdomonial area. Hamilton said in the last couple of days he's been swinging the bat at about 75 percent and running at 50 percent.
General manager Jon Daniels just confirmed that the specialist Hamilton is seeing John Preskitt, who diagnosed Ian Kinsler's hernia last year. Daniels said he's seeing the specialist to rule out a hernia.
