Josh Hamilton back in lineup, notes and lineup

Outfielder Josh Hamilton is back playing left and batting fifth tonight. Hamilton took Tuesday off because his hamstrings were sore. He said it was more of a precautionary thing than anything else, and he didn't want it to become a problem.

The team is undecided on who will start Tuesday's series opener in Los Angeles. Manager Ron Washington said the team will not skip a starter, meaning its likely the Tuesday bid will go to either Dustin Nippert, Matt Harrison or someone from Triple A like Guillermo Moscoso.

General manager Jon Daniels lost a bet with Elvis Andrus when the team won its 10th-consecutive game. Daniels had gold highlights put in his hair Wednesday,

Warner Madrigal has been outrighted to Oklahoma City, freeing up a spot for the Rangers on the 40-man roster. The team also released veteran catcher Toby Hall, who was rehabbing his shoulder in Arizona.
