Texas Rangers trade news: You guys won't believe it but the Texas Rangers acquired Josh Hamilton. I know this comes out of the blue but the 2010 MVP is back with the Rangers after the Angels traded him for cash considerations or a player to be named later.

Hamilton will spend some time in extended spring training in Surprise, Arizona before rehabbing in the minors. Once the Rangers feel Hamilton is ready, he'll likely take over left field in Arlington. Hamilton also was placed on the major league 15-day DL and Nick Tepesch was moved to the 60-day DL to make room for Hamilton on the roster.
