Rangers manager Jeff Banister did say Saturday was a planned day off for Hamilton, but there does seem to be some concern in regards to Hamilton's health.

"Obviously, we’ll see where he is throughout the night," Banister said, per the Fort Worth Star-Telegram. "We’ll continue to try to manage how he feels. This is a guy we’d like to have for an extended period of time. I’m trying my best to figure this whole thing out with him and what is best for Josh."

Hamilton admitted Monday he is not 100 percent, but added he is "absolutely" ready to play.

“When I get out to my normal running stride, I still feel it a bit,” he said of the injury, according to The Dallas Morning News. “We worked on coming up with something a little shorter. 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. I talked with Adrian Beltre and he’s managed that injury before and he said that sometimes the best thing to do is to play with it. Right now I’m comfortable to a certain extent.”
