Rangers Will Open Home Slate Against Hamilton, Angels

Jan 08, 2013 5:46 PM EST

The Rangers will host the Angels on April 5 in their home opener for the 2013 season.

That means Josh Hamilton will return to Texas immediately.

Last year, the two teams didn't play until mid-May.

It will be the first chance for Rangers fans to greet Hamilton since he signed a five-year, $125 million deal with the Angels in December.
