Rangers GM Jon Daniels said on Monday that he has "maintained dialogue" with Josh Hamilton and his agent.
"I think he wants to be here," said Daniels. "But like any deal or situation there are a number of other factors involved. We've just chosen not to comment on it. But we've been consistent all along: We'd like to have Josh back." It sounds like it'll be a late-developing market for the free agent outfielder, who has been linked loosely to the Phillies, Orioles, Mariners, Brewers, Red Sox and Braves. The Rangers are very much in the hunt.
