Rangers' Hamilton hoping for quick recovery

  •  

DETROIT (AP) - Josh Hamilton was in the clubhouse wearing a sling while his Texas teammates prepared to play without the AL MVP.

Hamilton says he'll work hard and try to come back as quickly as possible after breaking his upper right arm on a headfirst dive into home plate Tuesday at Detroit. The Rangers put him on the 15-day disabled list Wednesday, but Hamilton is expected to miss six to eight weeks.

Texas recalled infielder Chris Davis from Triple-A Round Rock.

Hamilton was hurt trying to score from third on a foul popup. He called the daring dash "stupid" and that third-base coach Dave Anderson told him to go. He says he doesn't blame Anderson for the injury.

Hamilton hit .359 with 32 home runs and 100 RBIs in 2010. He's hitting .333 this season.
