OF Hamilton will return Monday, 1B Davis sent down

ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) - Rangers outfielder Josh Hamilton will be reinstated from the 15-day disabled list Monday, in time to return to Texas' lineup for the team's game against the Los Angeles Angels.

To make room for Hamilton, the Rangers will send struggling first baseman Chris Davis to Triple-A Oklahoma City to get his swing untracked. Davis is batting .202 and leads the majors with 114 strikeouts.

Hamilton, selected for his second All-Star game on Sunday, has completed his recovery from abdominal surgery. He played a doubleheader with Triple-A Oklahoma City on Sunday in a minor league rehab assignment, going 2 for 7 in the two games, including a triple, double and stolen base.
