Rangers reach out to Orioles over Davis
Rangers general manager Jon Daniels talked with Orioles GM Andy MacPhail when he heard that Chris Davis was sidelined with a strained right shoulder. The two sides have not had serious discussions about reworking the deal but Daniels said that might be revisited in the future.
Davis told the Orioles that the shoulder started bothering him while he was still with the Rangers. But he never told the Rangers or asked for treatment. The Orioles have not blamed the Rangers for concealing the injury.
The Orioles still want Davis and the hope is he will recover 100 percent from the injury, becoming the player they expected to get. The Orioles acquired Davis and pitcher Tommy Hunter from the Orioles for reliever Koji Uehara on July 30.
“Andy was very clear he didn’t have any issues with us and the way things were handled,” Daniels said. “We’ll stay in touch. It might be something we revisit but there are no plans at this point.”
