Texas Rangers injury update: Carlos Gomez, Cole Hamels, Tyson Ross news

Carlos Gomez starts a rehab assignment, Cole Hamels is throwing, and Tyson Ross is still struggling

Texas Rangers injury update: Carlos Gomez, Tyson Ross and Cole Hamels are all on the disabled list, but there are updates on all three players.

Carlos Gomez, on the disabled list with a hamstring strain, is scheduled to start a rehab assignment tonight with AAA Round Rock. Gomez is slated to DH today and tomorrow, before playing in the field next week. If things go well, Gomez could be back in the majors by next weekend.

Tyson Ross, meanwhile, made his fourth rehab appearance for the Express yesterday, and it did not go well. Ross went five innings, faced 27 batters, and gave up 10 hits and a walk while hitting two batters. Ross gave up more home runs (3) than he had strike outs (2), and while the plan appeared to be to activate Ross this coming week, it appears he may need another rehab start. Ross is coming back from a shoulder issues and TOS surgery that kept him out most of 2016.

Finally, Cole Hamels, on the d.l. with a strained oblique, threw a bullpen session today, and is expected to throw a live b.p. session this coming week. Hamels was expected to miss 8 weeks, and this is just over the 5 week mark since he went on the d.l.
