ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) - Josh Hamilton is back with the Texas Rangers.

After two troublesome years with the Los Angeles Angels and less than halfway through a $125 million, five-year contract, Hamilton was traded to AL West rival Texas with cash on Monday for a player to be named or cash.

"I had a lot of good memories here," Hamilton said during a news conference. "I'm back here. I'm back home. I'm going to give everything I've got."
