Texas Rangers outfielder Josh Hamilton has been hospitalized because of an intestinal virus and will remain in the hospital for the next 12 to 24 hours while receiving fluids.

The Rangers have brought up outfielder Leonys Martin from Round Rock and he'll start in center for the Rangers tonight.

Hamilton is not going on the disabled list. To make room for Martin, the Rangers put right-hander Koji Uehara on the disabled list with a strained right lat.
