Josh Hamilton homered in his return to baseball, a rehab assignment with the Double-A Frisco RoughRiders on Wednesday night.
Hamilton, who hasn't played since April 13 when he suffered a non-displaced fracture of his right humerus, went 2 for 4 with a two-run homer in his second at-bat of the game. He also singled in the fifth inning.
Hamilton served as the team's designated hitter on Wednesday and he's expected to play another game for Frisco before playing this weekend for Triple-A Round Rock this weekend and joining the Rangers on Monday.
His Rangers teammate, Nelson Cruz, was 0 for 4 on Wednesday in the third game of his rehab assignment.For more baseball news, rumors and analysis, follow @cbssportsmlb on Twitter or subscribe to the RSS feed.
