Josh Hamilton's risky move
Moving to center field could cost him millions on the open market
Entering a contract season, the Texas Rangers want to make sure they get as much value from Josh Hamilton as possible before he hits the open market. That's one big reason why Hamilton will move back to his original position as a center fielder after spending the past two seasons as a left fielder for the Rangers. While the Rangers initially moved Hamilton to left in order to keep him healthier, and Hamilton may prefer to play center, the move could cost him millions on the free-agent market.
