Rangers outfielder Josh Hamilton was given a cortisone injection Saturday in his right knee, according to the Fort Worth Star-Telegram, but expects to be fine to return to the starting lineup on Monday.
Hamilton has been bothered by an achy knee for about a month. He’s played through it for the most part, and is apparently available to pinch hit on Sunday, but you have to wonder if cortisone will work as a solvent all season.
The 29-year-old outfielder is batting .299 with an 884 OPS and 32 RBI in 53 games this season. He hit his 11th home run of the year on Saturday night before exiting early with knee discomfort.
