ARLINGTON, Texas -- Josh Hamilton will miss the entire season after more surgery on his left knee.
The Rangers said Monday that Hamilton, who has been on the disabled list all season, will have surgery June 8 in Houston. The surgery will be performed by Dr. Walt Lowe, whom the slugger visited for another opinion on his knee.
Hamilton, the 2010 AL MVP and a five-time All-Star, had surgery twice on the knee last year. The first was in September, and then he had another operation after the season after returning for the end of the regular season and for the playoffs.
He had soreness caused by an inflamed capsule behind his left knee after getting to spring training.
Hamilton, who turned 35 on Saturday, is signed through next season.
