Hamilton plays 1st extended spring training game for Rangers

SURPRISE, Ariz. (AP) - Josh Hamilton played in extended spring training for the Texas Rangers on Monday, his first game of any kind since last October.

Hamilton struck out once and hit three grounders to first base in Arizona, a week after the Los Angeles Angels completed a trade that sent to slugger back to Texas. He played three innings in left field.

Hamilton had not played in a game since last fall, when he was hitless in 13 at-bats as the Angels were swept by Kansas City in the AL division series. He had offseason shoulder surgery, and had a self-reported relapse with alcohol and cocaine.

Rangers general manager Jon Daniels says Hamilton seems 100 percent healthy. Hamilton will stay in Arizona several more days before going to Triple-A Round Rock in Texas.
