Texas Rangers DH Khris Davis to miss start of season due to quad injury

The Texas Rangers will be opening their 2021 MLB season without DH Khris Davis due to his left quadriceps injury. Rangers general manager Chris Young said Wednesday that Davis will miss three to four weeks due to the strain, which occurred Tuesday when Davis ran out a bunt single in a spring training game against the Los Angeles Angels.

Rangers manager Chris Woodward told reporters Wednesday: “We’ll see how it works out, and obviously we have a few more roster decisions to make. I don’t know for sure how we’re going to move on from here, but we still got some more decisions to make.”

The Oakland Athletics traded the 33-year-old Davis to the Rangers in February. Davis hit .200 with two home runs and 10 RBIs in 30 games last season for the Athletics, and has hit at least 42 home runs in each season from 2016 through 2018. He hit an MLB-best 48 homers in 2018.
