Wednesday's Rangers notes: Hamilton to start two more games in CF; Ogando likely headed to 'pen

Josh Hamilton is off for tonight's game versus the Kansas City Royals. He is expected to start two of the final four games in center field, manager Ron Washington said.

Hamilton said he doesn't have a preference in playing center or left, but said it's easier to make the switch from center-to-left rather than left-to-center.

Craig Gentry gets the start in center tonight. Washington would like to see Gentry reach base and run. Gentry hasn't gotten consistent playing time because of minor injuries including hamstring, wrist and light-headedness.

Here are a few other notes from Wednesday:

* If Neftali Feliz throws a successful bullpen on Thursday, the Rangers will officially move Alexi Ogando into a relief role. Washington said Ogando is a special weapon out of the bullpen, throwing multiple innings or being a power arm late in the game.

* Elvis Andrus, who left Tuesday's game with a tight right hip flexor, is off today. He is expected to return to the lineup Thursday.
