(8/19/2015) Rangers outfielder Josh Hamilton seems more and more destined to land on the disabled list, as his sore knee continues to bother him. Hamilton hasn't played since Saturday due to the injury.

"We're close to making a decision," manager Jeff Banister said,per MLB.com. "We're not ready to say he is a DL candidate. We don't do that until it's necessary. We don't have to make a decision today."

Hamilton did have a cortisone shot last week, but admitted he was still feeling pain following the injection.

"It's a day-to-day thing seeing how it feels and trying new things," Hamilton said before Wednesday's finale vs. the Mariners. "We'll get together today and figure out what is the best thing to do.

"If I could play through it, I would be out there right now," Hamilton said. "If I went out there right now, we would be back where we were four days ago: swollen or worse."

Hamilton has already been on the DL twice this season, including a trip to start the season.

That went great. I was really happy with it. I’ve got to stay on top of it and remind myself of what I need to do.

“I was hoping to play (Monday), but we decided to give me a day to recover after the travel and the workout. I’d like to get a week or 10 days in with the team and manage it and then get the All-Star break to give it some rest.

"A young player who needs at-bats," GM Jon Daniels said of Gallo, per MLB.com. "We're not going to keep him here unless he is playing on a regular basis. Right now, he's playing on a regular basis."
