    Outfielder Josh Hamilton has been scratched from the Texas Rangers' initial intrasquad game with a bruised left shoulder.

    Hamilton had been scheduled to play left and bat third during Monday's intrasquad game. Rangers manager Ron Washington says he is not concerned about the injury at this point, but would be if it keeps Hamilton out for "another for or five days."

    Hamilton bruised his shoulder Thursday in the Rangers first full squad workout when he fell while running after a pop-up during a fly ball drill. Hamilton returned on Saturday, but did not participate in the rain-shortened Sunday session.

    Hamilton was limited to 89 games last year because of injuries.
