Focus is on Departed Hamilton, Young for Rangers

The focus was more on the departed rather than present Saturday as the Texas Rangers went through their first full-squad spring training workout this year.

While the Rangers had 63 players in uniform, two noticeable absentees were Josh Hamilton and Michael Young.

Hamilton, the 2010 AL MVP, signed a $125 million, five-year contract with the Los Angeles Angels after hitting 43 homers with 128 RBIs for the Rangers last season. Young, the Rangers' career hits leader, was traded to the Philadelphia Phillies.

Texas is trying for its fourth straight berth in the playoffs.
