Josh Hamilton gets released by Rangers

ESPN reports that 36-year-old Josh Hamilton has been released by the Rangers after another setback knee injury. He had his 11th surgery last season and signed an minor league deal in the off-season.

Fantasy Impact

This could be the end of Josh Hamilton's career, one that, unfortunately, had more downs than ups.

Josh Hamilton has 11th knee surgery

Josh Hamilton is expected to miss at least three months as he recovers from surgery to repair a torn meniscus cartilage in his left knee. This is Hamilton's 11th knee surgery.

Fantasy Impact

I don't see any fantasy value in Josh Hamilton this season. The 35-year-old has been plagued with injuries. In deep, deep leagues with a few available DL spots, maybe he can be stashed, but it's unlikely we see Hamilton until June at the earliest, and that's a best case scenario.

More knee woes for Josh Hamilton

Josh Hamilton could face more knee surgery as he is having issues putting weight on his left knee. Hamilton had ACL surgery in June 2016.

Fantasy Impact

The Rangers gave Josh Hamilton a minor league deal this Winter, but with more surgery looming, there really is no fantasy value here. Hamilton missed all of the 2016 season.

Rangers to evaluate Josh Hamilton

The Texas Rangers plan to evaluate former MVP Josh Hamilton to see how his balky knee has responded to the reconstructive surgery he underwent this past season.

Fantasy Impact

Hamilton has been just a shadow of himself the past few years as he has battled injuries and other personal issues. The Rangers released their former left fielder, but always had the plan to bring him back to see if it would be worth having him at Spring Training. The evaluation is scheduled to happen sometime next week.

Josh Hamilton suffers knee setback

Josh Hamilton had his rehab assignment paused as he experienced soreness in his surgically-repaired knee.

Fantasy Impact

If this is nothing more than soreness, Hamilton could resume the assignment next week. There's also a chance it's another more extensive setback that would lengthen his return time frame. He doesn't hold any fantasy value at this time considering the injury.
