Davis was 3-for-14 in eight games and said he was not surprised to be designated while also adding he would consider joining Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes Barre if he clears waivers.

Teixeira started Saturday's game against the visiting Minnesota Twins. He was batting .180 with three homers and 12 RBIs in 167 at-bats this season.
