Josh Hamilton out 6-8 weeks, Chris Davis being recalled

Okay, those initial reports that Josh Hamilton's injury wasn't serious? 

Nevermind.

Texas Ranger outfielder Josh Hamilton is going to be out 6-8 weeks with a "small fracture" in his humerus bone, and Chris Davis is being recalled to take his place on the 25 man roster.

I'm a little surprised by Davis getting the call...with Julio Borbon now being the only "true" centerfielder on the 25 man roster, I figured Craig Gentry, or possibly Endy Chavez, would be called up to replace Hamilton.

Davis, though, turned heads in spring training and is off to a hot start, and I guess the Rangers want to get a handle on whether he can be counted on to contribute in the majors this season.

I wouldn't be surprised if Gentry were to come up and replace a reliever at some point in the near future, though.
