Josh Hamilton Heads Back To Texas To Meet With Rangers Doctors

Texas Rangers all-star center fielder Josh Hamilton was scratched from the team's Thursday lineup and will not play Thursday, according to Dallas Morning News baseball columnist Evan Grant:

Hamilton left Tuesday's game in the third inning with sinus symptoms, particularly blurred vision. He reportedly had a sinus MRI Wednesday that came back negative, and was a game-time decision for Thursday's game against the Angels.

Earlier this week, Hamilton told ESPN Dallas his problems are caused by a bug that everyone in his house has caught:

"Any time I get sick, it usually turns into a sinus infection," Hamilton said. "Sometimes it can cause me to be off-kilter, off-balance, but this is the first time it's caused me not to be able to focus the way I want to on the field. ... The more you run when you can't breathe as good, you get a little dizzy, a little thrown off. It just is what it is. I had the MRI just to make sure everything was good to go."

The Rangers close their series with the Angels on Thursday night and travel to Seattle for a three-game series against the Mariners starting Friday evening. There is no word yet from the club if Hamilton will meet them there.
