SURPRISE, Ariz. (AP) Josh Hamilton's bid to make the Texas Rangers' opening day roster has ended after yet another surgery on his balky left knee.
Hamilton had an arthroscopic procedure Monday in Houston to repair some damaged meniscus cartilage in his left knee after experiencing pain last week while running at training camp. There were no issues with the surgically repaired ACL in that knee.
The 2010 AL MVP, in camp on a minor league contract, faces six weeks of rehabilitation before he will be able to start running again, then would need several weeks or more of baseball activity to be ready to play in games.
