    Texas Rangers outfielder Josh Hamilton was in Alabama instead of Arizona on Monday, getting a second opinion on his sore left knee.

    Hamilton said after reporting to spring training last week he experienced soreness caused by an inflamed capsule behind his left knee. He had surgery twice on the knee last year, in September and then after the season following his return for the end of the regular season and the playoffs.

    In Alabama, Hamilton was expected set to see Dr. Jeff Dugas, who is associated with Dr. James Andrews.

    After the October surgery, Hamilton didn't taking batting practice again until Jan. 22, the day after a cortisone shot.

    He had also been going through baseball activities last week after being an early arrival in Arizona.
