The hit-less game dropped his season batting line to .210/.290/.427. He does have eight home runs and 21 driven in, but he doesn't offer much beyond the power.

The home run was his third of the season, the RBI his eighth. He would finish 1-for-3 with two runs scored, plus a walk and a strikeout. Davis has now struck out 27 times in 16 games. He'll crank a fair number of home runs, but given his propensity to whiff, his average figures to remain in the low-.200's.

Chris Davis hit his first home run of the season against the Blue Jays on Saturday.

Davis smacked the solo shot off Aaron Sanchez in the first inning. He finished the game 2-for-4 with the home run and a single, plus a strikeout. The slugger missed the Orioles' opener serving the final game of a 25-game suspension for amphetamine use, but he looks no worse for the wear. The Orioles are hoping that Davis can bounce back from a 2014 campaign in which he hit just .196/.300/.404.
Apr 11 - 10:20 PM

Orioles reinstated 1B/OF/DH Chris Davis from the restricted list.

Davis missed Opening Day because he still had one game remaining on his 25-game amphetamine suspension from last year, but he'll be in the starting lineup Tuesday against the Rays. The 29-year-old slugger is coming off a disappointing 2914 season, but he's a very strong bounceback candidate.
Apr 7 - 3:32 PM

Chris Davis homered and doubled off Cole Hamels in Monday's rout.

Davis was just 2-for-19 this spring before busting out with three hits today. Of course, everyone on the Orioles hit today, as the team scored 16 runs, but it's still nice to see Davis having quality at-bats against a tough left-hander.
Mar 16 - 5:16 PM

Orioles manager Buck Showalter said Friday that Chris Davis will get some playing time in right field this spring.

Davis has made 39 starts in the outfield during his career, though none of them have come over the last two seasons. It's just a matter of giving him some reps there just in case he might be needed at the position, as Davis is slated to be the regular first baseman.
