Rangers to induct Josh Hamilton into club’s Hall of Fame ahead of Saturday’s game vs. Minnesota

The Rangers will induct Josh Hamilton into the club’s Hall of Fame Saturday before their game with Minnesota. Hamilton, who played for the Rangers from 2008-12 and again in 2015, won the MVP in 2010 and was perhaps the most dynamic player ever to wear a Rangers uniform.

The Rangers have added a $32 two-ticket offer – commemorating Hamilton’s No. 32 – in advance of the night. Tickets can be purchased at Texasrangers.com/Hamilton and using coupon code “HAMILTON.”

Former Arlington mayor Richard Greene will also be inducted. The Rangers have not inducted anybody into their Hall of Fame since Michael Young in 2016.

Briefly: RHP Jesse Chavez ended up on the injured list Tuesday with what is being called a posterior right elbow impingement. Chavez, who was replaced on the roster by RHP David Carpenter, will undergo an MRI on Thursday. Chavez, who is signed for $4 million for 2020, has never been on the IL before with an arm injury. He said the elbow has been bothering him since mid-May, but had gotten worse since the All-Star break. … LHP Kolby Allard, who will make his second start for the Rangers Wednesday, turned 22 on Tuesday. Allard went 4 1/3 innings at Milwaukee Friday in his Rangers debut before appearing to hit a wall in the fifth inning.
