Josh Hamilton will play left field tonight against the A’s, manager Ron Washington said.

Hamilton was given the option of taking the night off after he made the throw Thursday that caused Shannon Stone to tumble over a Rangers Ballpark railing and fall to his death. Hamilton, though, said he wanted to be out there playing.

Hamilton is expected to address the media before the game.
