      Rangers' Josh Hamilton: Receives cortisone injection

      Hamilton received a cortisone injection Thursday to reduce capsular inflammation in his left knee, Evan Grant of the Dallas Morning News reports. Hamilton had reportedly been dealing with some knee soreness since undergoing what was deemed a minor knee procedure in October, but it's caused him more issues than expected. The veteran outfielder has now been pain-free for the past 36 hours, but it may be worth monitoring whether or not he has any limitations at the start of spring training that could indicate the issue isn't behind him.

      Rangers' Josh Hamilton: Has minor surgery on knee two weeks ago

      Hamilton had minor surgery two weeks ago to cleanup his left knee, Evan Grant of the Dallas Morning News reports. Grant stressed that the surgery wasn't a big deal and that Hamilton has resumed rehabbing without any issues. The cleanup procedure likely stems from the 34-year-old's arthroscopic surgery that was performed near the beginning of September, but he was able to return to the team later in the month, hitting two home runs in the second-to-last game of the season. He should be ready to go come spring training, but considering his injury history and age, it remains to be seen how effective Hamilton will be at the plate in 2016.
