Who's On First? Davis To Keep First Base Job

After Rangers manager Ron Washington proclaimed that Hank Blalock would remain the teams starter, there were some questions about the big league future of first baseman Chris Davis of Longview.

Turns out Chris and Hank will be able to start.

The Rangers announced Friday that Hank Blalock will move back to third base, the position he became an All-Star at. Hank has been out with several injuries this season.

In June, Chris was called up from AAA Oklahoma to play at first. Ron Washington said Chris' strength of play is a big reason for the switch. The 21-year-old batted .259 in 58 at-bats this year. Davishas six home runs and a slugging percentage of .655.

Ramon Vazquez had been the fixture at third base. He now returns to a utility role.
