The Texas Rangers announced Wednesday that Josh Hamilton received a stem cell and platelet rich plasma injection in his sore left knee.
Hamilton will be on crutches for seven to 10 days and is projected to be out for eight weeks. The team hopes to have the outfielder back by early May.
Assistant general manager Thad Levine said Hamilton will more than likely start his minor league rehab in late April.
Hamilton had two knee surgeries on his left knee last year season.
