Rangers outfielder Josh Hamilton's 2016 season is over, after the team announced the former American League MVP is going to have another surgery on his oft-injured knee.

"(Josh) will have surgery June 8 and will be out for the year," Rangers general manager Jon Daniels said Monday. "It's on the same knee, but is on a different part of the meniscus."

Hamilton had surgery on the knee in the off-season, and was seen on crutches in Spring Training. Daniels said the surgery is, "not totally unexpected with the shear number of procedures on his knee," but that Hamilton is, "100% committed to coming back to play next year."
