Chris Davis optioned to OKC… Justin Smoak called up
The Rangers optioned first baseman Chris Davis to Oklahoma City after Thursday’s game. Justin Smoak is being called up. Davis was hitting .188 with no home runs and one RBI in 15 games. Smoak will be in Texas on Friday.
The Rangers will likely make room for Smoak on the 40-man by calling up pitcher Omar Poveda and put him on the 60-day disabled list. He is out for the season because of elbow surgery.
