Welcome to the Show

The Texas Rangers sent this guy down to AAA Okalahoma City yesterday:

Chris Davis was hitting .188 with no homers and 1 RBI in 48 at bats this season.

The Rangers called up this guy to replace him:

Justin Smoak was hitting .326 with 2 homers and 5 RBIs through 14 games with the AAA club.

Smoak is scheduled to make his Major League Debut later today against Detroit.

Welcome to the Show Justin. Good luck!


  1. Very excited to see how Smoak does. Sad that Chris could never put it together again. Very big prospect in his own right.

  2. Do you think that means Davis is done? It seemed like he got rushed to the majors, but he also seemed full of promise... Gotta love that card, too.

  3. He seems oh so full of strikeouts too.

    I don't really got why he came up, hit for good average and power for a real decent number of ABs but then after getting the starting role the next season fell completely apart, and again this year. I'm stumped.

  4. Davis is only 24, I hope he still makes it.

  5. Sad to see Chris go. I wonder if Justin can do the splits as well. Hopefully he'll at least hit better.

  6. He might be done in Texas but I hope Chris Davis gets another chance somewhere.
