Josh Hamilton Injury: Groin May Keep Rangers Star Out A Few Days

Texas Rangers star center fielder Josh Hamilton left Friday's game with tightness in his left groin versus the Colorado Rockies. Hamilton had made four consecutive starts in center field for Ron Washington's Rangers, but as has been the case for Hamilton's injury-plagued career the team will be cautious and keep him out for the next few days.

Hamilton's issues with the groin isn't a new one, as he's had two serious groin injuries that turned into sports hernias, thus requiring surgery. The strained left side of his groin caused Hamilton to go down during the 2011 postseason, but played through it in the World Series. Hamilton also had surgery on the right side in 2009 after crashing into a wall in a regular season game.

The Rangers will begin their season on Friday, April 6 versus the Chicago White Sox. Hamilton will probably sit until the final preseason game just to be sure to be fit for opening day.
