Rangers move Josh Hamilton (knee) to 60-day DL

DETROIT -- The Texas Rangers have signed free-agent outfielder Drew Stubbs and moved injured slugger Josh Hamilton to the 60-day disabled list.

Stubbs was with Texas during spring training on a minor league deal, then refused assignment to Triple-A Round Rock and was released in late March. The Atlanta Braves picked him up, and he went 9-for-38 (.237) at the plate before being designated for assignment Monday. He was released Tuesday.

Hamilton, who is still rehabbing from offseason surgery on his left knee, was transferred from the 15-day to the 60-day DL.

The Rangers also announced Saturday that they have optioned left-hander Alex Claudio to Round Rock.
