Hank asked Washington to move over to 1B prior to his recent injury. He thought that the move might help him stay healthy. Right now it seems like Davis is out of a job for the time being but I wouldn't be surprised if they try him out at 3B or OF. He can DH also.
Isn't there a chance that Hank is feeling much better now, and that he could potentially play 3B? ...opening up first for Davis?
You would think so since it will make the team better but I'm not so sure if Hank will step aside for Davis especially since he specifically asked Washington to move him to 1B in order to stay healthy (which obviously didn't help). Hopefully Hank will be unselfish but he hasn't really said anything yet so I'm assuming that he wants to man 1B.
BTW, Blalock does not suck. He's just very prone to injuries and I'm sure they have affected his skills over time but he can still be a very productive player.
