Chris Davis' Bat Likely to Keep Him With Rangers

As long as he keeps hitting, expect rookie corner infielder Chris Davis to find a way to stay with the Rangers, forcing the team to backtrack on plans to return him to the minors once Hank Blalock returns to first base from the disabled list.

Various published reports indicate the team has already decided as much.

The possibilities are manifold, and likely will involve Davis gaining time at third base and designated hitter, with Milton Bradley moving from DH back to the outfield at the expense of the weaker sisters sharing time out there now.

Of course, little needs to change until Blalock proves he can stay healthy.
