Davis (knee) will remain in Rangers camp after rosters are announced to continue with his rehab, the Fort Worth Star-Telegram's Jeff Wilson reports.

Competitive Edge Analysis

Davis won't make the big league club, and will be ticketed for Triple-A once his rehab is complete. His .251/.352/.443 career slash line against righties might be enough to garner at-bats in another organization, but the Rangers are pretty set at first base and designated hitter.

Davis (knee) is unlikely to make the Opening Day roster, TR Sullivan of MLB.com reports.

Competitive Edge Analysis

Assistant general manager Thad Levine spoke on Davis' status Wednesday, stating that his sprained knee has drastically affected his chances at making the 25-man roster out of camp. Davis, a non-roster invitee, has been sidelined since March 10 due to the injury, and it now looks all but certain that he'll start the year in the minor leagues. Mitch Moreland, Justin Ruggiano, and Prince Fielder will be the primary first base options for the Rangers to start the year in all likelihood.

Davis is day-to-day with a mild right knee sprain, the Fort Worth Star-Telegram's Stefan Stevenson reports.

Competitive Edge Analysis

He is likely to begin the season at Triple-A and serve as organizational first base/DH depth, so this is not a major development in fantasy circles. Look for him to get back into Cactus League action sometime next week.

Davis signed a minor league contract that included an invite to spring training with the Rangers on Monday.

Competitive Edge Analysis

Davis underwent season-ending surgery to repair a torn labrum in August of 2015 after a disappointing year with Oakland. With a slash line of .229/.301/.350 the 28-year-old was expected to generate some pop, but only failed to hit three home runs in 214 plate appearances. The Rangers will hope Davis can regain his look from 2012 when he hit 32 home runs and added 90 RBI's for the Mets.

Davis is expected to sign a minor-league deal with Texas, the team's web site reports.

Competitive Edge Analysis

Davis owns a career .794 OPS against right-handed pitching, but struggled through a hip injury for much of 2015 and slashed just .229/.301/.350. He'll be hard-pressed to carve out any sort of role with Prince Fielder and Mitch Moreland entrenched at DH/1B and prospect Joey Gallo looming at Triple-A Round Rock.

Davis was not tendered a contract by the A's, Joe Stiglich of CSN Bay Area reports.

Competitive Edge Analysis

Davis will move on from the Athletics organization after appearing in 74 games and hitting just .229 last season. The 29-year-old has been on a downward trajectory since a strong 2011 campaign with the Mets, and he may have to settle for a minor league deal to attempt to rejuvenate his career.
