from Jeff Wilson at

Josh Hamilton(Raleigh Athens Drive High School/Texas Rangers-MLB) will take the next step in his march back into the Texas Rangers’ lineup Sunday as he begins a rehab assignment with Triple A Round Rock, Texas at Nashville, Tennessee.

The left fielder played Friday in an extended spring game on his 11th day in Surprise, Ariz., and was deemed ready for a higher level of competition after going 1-for-5 with a three-run homer against Seattle. The Rangers have no set plan for how long Hamilton will be with Round Rock.

Round Rock returns home for a four-game series Tuesday but hits the road again next weekend. The Rangers are home for seven games beginning Monday before on off day May 18 ahead of a nine-game road trip to Boston, New York and Cleveland.
