Left fielder Josh Hamilton expects to return to the Rangers' lineup Monday after receiving a cortisone injection Saturday in his right knee.
He said the issue has been bothering him the past month and is nothing he can't play through. He's out of the lineup today, though available to pinch-hit.
Hamilton hit a two-run homer in the first Saturday and was hitless in three more at-bats before leaving in the top of the ninth. He said the injury can prevent him from getting full extension while running and occasionally causes his knee to buckle.
"It's nothing that's going to keep me out of the lineup," he said.
