Hamilton signs minor league deal with Rangers, will try 1B

ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) Josh Hamilton walked into a room at the Texas Rangers' ballpark carrying a new first baseman's mitt and feeling the way he did 10 years ago.

Hamilton, the 2010 AL MVP who has had surgery three times on his left knee since last playing in 2015, knows he has to earn a spot on the roster this spring. The five-time All-Star outfielder will also be learning a new position.

"The first thing that comes to mind is 2007 spring training with the Reds. I had to make the team, remembering how much work I had to put in to make that happen, and remembering how much fun that was, because every day mattered," said Hamilton, who will turn 36 in May. "That mentality, I feel like, is back."
