The Rangers return from an off day with their normal lineup against a right-handed starter, which means Josh Hamilton is in center field. Hamilton participated in early batting practice this afternoon, an indication that his upper respiratory infection has improved. "His color looked much better," said manager Ron Washington, who noted how pale Hamilton was during the homestand. "He was as white as that sheet of paper you're writing on."
