Rangers to recall Chris Davis

With the Rangers offense continuing to struggle and the Rangers getting almost nothing from first baseman Hank Blalock and DH Andruw Jones, T.R. Sullivan reports that the Rangers will be calling up Chris Davis from AAA Oklahoma to take over as the team's first baseman when they play against on Tuesday in New York.

Davis lost his job in early July after having one of the worst first halves imaginable, but since his demotion, both Blalock and Jones have stopped hitting, and it seems the Rangers are looking to Davis -- who reportedly has made significant adjustments in his mechanics since going down to AAA -- to improve on what little they've done the past six weeks.

Not sure what the corresponding roster move will be as far as the 25 man roster would be, but I'd assume it will either be Doug Mathis being optioned, or Andruw Jones being waived.
