ANAHEIM -- The Rangers are close to a deal that would send Angels outfielder Josh Hamilton back to Texas, a source told MLB.com's T.R. Sullivan on Friday. Neither club has confirmed the trade, which still needs to clear several logistical hurdles before it's completed.
The Angels aren't expected to get any players from the Rangers, only cash considerations, a source said. Yahoo! Sports reported that the Rangers would pay about $15 million of the roughly $90 million that's owed to Hamilton through the 2017 season.
