Josh Hamilton returned to Rangers Ballpark on Sunday, the first time he's been back since being hospitalized Friday with an intestinal virus.
Hamilton used Sunday as another rest day, and didn't do any baseball activities. He plans to be in the lineup on Monday against San Diego, though.
"I haven't really gotten my strength back," Hamilton said. "My insides hurt. It stinks that the whole family had it. My 3-year-old daughter is still in the hospital with it, so it just ran through the family. Everybody has turned the corner except her."
Hamilton said the doctors told him it was a norovirus, which is a common virus on cruise ships.
"That's why it ran through the house so quickly," Hamilton said. "It's one reason I stayed away -- don't want to spread anything through the clubhouse. It will go through here quick, and we won't have much of a team."
Hamilton felt the virus affecting him before Thursday's game, and had to come out in the eighth inning.
Here are a few other notes from Sunday:
* Manager Ron Washington is still unsure of how the rotation will set up following an offday on Thursday. Justin Grimm would be in line for the start on Friday, but there are several moving parts in the equation, including how Roy Oswalt fares in his fourth minor league start today.
* Brandon Snyder is making his second start of the homestand in rightfield, as Nelson Cruz shifts to leftfield. Ron Washington said Snyder feels more comfortable in right than left, and wanted to play him where he's most comfortable.
* Derek Holland continues to play catch, but has not thrown off a mound yet. Until he does that, the Rangers can't set up a timeline for his return.
* Neftali Feliz is scheduled to begin playing catch on Monday in San Diego. He will play catch and long toss for a week or so, and then evaluate where he is.
