Texas Rangers slugger Josh Hamilton went 1-for-3 with a double, a walk and a run scored as the designated hitter for Double-A Frisco on Wednesday in the first game of his rehab assignment. He will join Triple-A Round Rock in New Orleans on Thursday.

Hamilton hasn't played since he strained his left hamstring on his game-ending two-run double in a 4-3 win over Boston on May 31, which wrapped up his first week back with Texas.
