Infielder Chris Davis
said after Saturday’s win over Iowa he is ready to return to Texas, though it is unclear if he’ll get his wish. Davis went 2-for-4 Sunday and has hit .370 with the RedHawks. The Rangers sent Davis down to OKC to work on his swing July 6.
"I definitely think I’m where I want to be,” Davis said. "I had good at-bats off a lefty, I was squaring balls up. I think it’s just a matter of time before I get the call.”
Davis has had plenty of support from fans, including his mother, who was here for a doubleheader Saturday.
"I’ve seen a lot of people with signs and a few who told me they came up from Arlington to watch me play,” he said. "That means a lot.”
Ramirez rehabbing; Boggs in limbo
RedHawks catcher Max Ramirez
is in Surprise, Ariz., to rehab his sore wrists, and outfielder Brandon Boggs
remains on the DL with a shoulder injury that has yet to be fully diagnosed.
"He went to Texas to have it checked out, but they don’t want to operate on it,” RedHawks manager Bobby Jones
said. "He’s just rehabbing it right now.”
Feliz pitches at Futures Game
RedHawks reliever Neftali Feliz
pitched one inning in Sunday’s Futures Game. Feliz allowed no hits with one walk and two strikeouts. The 21-year-old is considered by many to be among the top 10 prospects in baseball regardless of position.
