THE NEWBERG REPORT — May 25, 2008
The Rangers, according to several local reports, have promoted first baseman Chris Davis from Frisco to Oklahoma. He departs the Texas League with a .333/.376/.618 line, plus 14 doubles, 13 home runs, 43 runs, and 42 RBI in 46 games. He was leading the league in homers and runs and was sixth in hitting, second (to fellow RoughRider Max Ramirez) in slugging and in total bases, second in RBI, third in hits, fourth in doubles, and third in OPS — behind Ramirez and Frisco outfielder Ben Harrison.
What this means for RedHawks first basemen Nate Gold and Jason Botts is unclear.
