T.R. Sullivan of MLB.com reports that the Rangers are “getting much trade interest” in Chris Davis.
Davis was sent back to the minors late last month and has a meager .188/.265/.267 batting line with zero homers in 101 major league at-bats this season, however the 24-year-old first baseman is batting .355/.409/.552 with 10 homers and 63 RBI with Triple-A Oklahoma City. He is 6-for-16 (.375) with seven RBI in five games since his demotion.
The Red Sox are just one of the teams that have shown interest in Davis, however he is highly unlikely to pass through waivers this month. In turn, Sullivan believes he could be a potential trade candidate during the offseason if Mitch Moreland convinces the Rangers that he can be their everyday first baseman. The 24-year-old Moreland is 7-for-21 (.333) with one RBI since being called up from Triple-A Oklahoma City on July 29.
