It appears that help is on the way for an anemic Texas Rangers offense.

Josh Hamilton and Nelson Cruz on Sunday breezed through what was the final game of rehab assignments for Triple A Round Rock.

Hamilton, who has been the designated hitter in five minor league games, went 0 for 4 in a 15-10 Express loss to Colorado Springs. Cruz, who has been rehabbing for six games, played right field and was 1 for 3 with a home run.

Best of all, both players said they felt fine and are expected to join the Rangers tonight when they open a series at home against the Chicago White Sox.

The timing for their returns couldn't be better. Since Hamilton went down April 12 in Detroit, the Rangers are 15-21. They have scored just five runs in their past four games and haven't scored more than five runs in the past 10 games.

"I'm excited," said Hamilton, who struck out twice and was intentionally walked once. "I'm excited to be back home and just be around the guys and be on the field with the guys and be in the lineup. It's totally different when you're not in the lineup as far as being in the trenches and being on the battlefield. I'm anxious to get back out there and feel I'm ready to be out there."

Hamilton, who was out with a broken upper bone in his right arm, went 4 for 18 with two home runs and six RBIs in five rehab games. Playing in his first day game since he was injured, he had a hard time picking up the ball at Dell Diamond.
