Waiver Claims: Davis, Banks

A couple of waiver claims were made today; let's discuss.

The A's picked up 27 year-old outfielder Rajai Davis, designating Kirk Saarloos.  Davis had been the Giants' bounty in the Matt Morris deal (aside from the main benefit of shedding Morris' contract).  Davis is known for his blazing speed, which helps him in the outfield and on the basepaths.  It seems unlikely that Davis will ever force his way into a starting role with Oakland.

The Padres snagged 25 year-old pitcher Josh Banks.  He's a starter with superb control, but the Padres will convert him to relief.  Certainly a Padres-like project.
