Rangers, Orioles have discussed the Chris Davis situation

Batlimore’s Chris Davis, who is currently on the disabled list with a partially torn right labrum, has complicated the July 30 Koji Uehara trade by saying the shoulder started bothering him when he was with Texas.

Such a statement could be considered grounds for reworking the deal that sent Davis and right-hander Tommy Hunter to the Orioles for their primary setup man.  Davis, though, has added that he never told anyone on the Rangers about the shoulder injury or sought treatment for it.

So, the Rangers did nothing wrong at all.  Still, GM Jon Daniels did reach out to Orioles president of baseball operations Andy MacPhail upon hearing the news,’s T.R. Sullivan reports.  It looks like nothing will be done about the deal now, but that might change if Davis eventually needs surgery.

“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.”

    It’s not like the O’s were counting on Davis for their stretch run. Sure, it would be nice to evaluate him this season, but he’s a chip for their future, not their present. And the present isn’t pretty.

    Proof that there is a black cloud over Eutaw St. in Baltimore. No matter WTF we do, we can not catch a break!

    We’re cursed! The only way to exercise these demons is to sacrifice a bucket of chicken and hire back Davey Johnson.

      Oh come on now… If they were in the AL central they’d be talking about playoffs right now.

      Or simply lay the bucket of chicken on its side and have it be your everyday second baseman.
