Orioles' manager Buck Showalter confirmed Thursday that Chris Davis will not be on the ALCS roster.
Davis will be eligible to return from his 25-game amphetamine suspension for Game 6, so the Orioles would have to play short-handed for the first five games. Not surprisingly, they have opted against doing that. Davis should be active if the team reaches the World Series. Oct 9 - 5:12 PM

Chris Davis is doubtful to make the Orioles' ALCS roster.

The O's pulled off a three-game sweep of the Tigers in the ALDS, so Davis still has five games remaining on his 25-game suspension for amphetamines. Had the best-of-five Division Series gone the distance, it might have made sense for the Orioles to add him to their active roster and play a man short for a bit against the Royals. But it's too much of a risk now.
Oct 6 - 8:33 AM

Orioles GM Dan Duquette said Thursday that Chris Davis may be activated if the club advances to the ALCS.

Davis was suspended September 12 for amphetamines and has to sit out of the Orioles' first eight playoff games, so the decision will probably come down to how long the ALDS goes. Davis struggled during the regular season, batting .196 with a .704 OPS. But he still managed to slug 26 homers in 127 games and could be a weapon for the O's if they make a deep October run.

Chris Davis is slated to play third base again Tuesday in an instructional league game in Florida.

He's slated to play five innings. Davis got four plate appearances on Monday. He won't be eligible to play in the O's first eight playoff games as he finishes out his suspension for amphetamines, but he's staying sharp just in case they make it far into the postseason.
Sep 30 - 10:51 AM

Chris Davis played three innings at third base and got three plate appearances in an instructional league game Friday.

He had a walk, a flyout and an infield single in his three trips to the dish. The Orioles sent the suspended slugger to instructs in order to stay sharp in the event that he's eventually added to their postseason roster. Davis is ineligible to play in the team's first eight playoff games.
Sep 26 - 2:57 PM

Chris Davis will report to the Orioles' complex in Sarasota, Florida this weekend.

Davis was suspended 25 games last week after testing positive for amphetamines, but the Orioles are hoping to get permission for him to play in instructional league games in order to stay fresh. He'll be eligible to be activated after eight postseason games, which means that he could return as soon as the ALCS.
Sep 15 - 4:38 PM

CBS Sports' Jon Heyman reports that Major League Baseball would allow the Orioles to place Chris Davis on their ALCS roster while he's still suspended.

He'll still have to sit out a few games, though, depending on how many the Orioles have played to that point (Davis can't play in the team's first eight playoff games). The O's would also have to play a man short if they choose to put Davis on the roster, so it's unclear whether they'd consider it or not.
Sep 12 - 2:42 PM

Chris Davis has been suspended 25 games by Major League Baseball after testing positive for amphetamines.

Oh boy. Dan Connolly of the Baltimore Sun first reported the suspension and now Major League Baseball has made it official. Davis said in a statement that the positive test was for Adderall, which he had an exemption for in past but not this year. The suspension includes the postseason, so Davis will be ineligible for the final 17 games of the regular season, as well as eight potential playoff games (or more regular season games next season if the Orioles are out of the playoffs by then). "Crush" has had a down year for the O's, batting just .196/.300/.404, but he's hit 26 homers and driven in 72 and his loss is obviously a major one for Baltimore.
Sep 12 - 11:03 AM

Chris Davis launched his 26th home run off Drew Smyly in Saturday's loss to the Rays.

Davis got the game's scoring started with his solo blast to right field in the second inning. He has been a tremendous disappointment at the plate this season, slashing just .196/.299/.412 with 26 homers and 72 RBI.
Sep 6 - 4:33 PM

Chris Davis smashed a grand slam in Friday's win over the Twins.

It was the big blow in a five-run fifth inning against Trevor May. Davis has three hits in his last seven games and they all happened to be home runs. He's now up to 24 homers on the year, but he's done it with a lousy .189/.292/.400 batting line.
Aug 29 - 11:25 PM

Chris Davis will make another start at third base Monday against the White Sox.

This will be his fifth start of the season at the hot corner and his fourth in the past week. He should get a few more before Manny Machado (knee) comes off the DL.
Aug 18 - 4:47 PM

Chris Davis went 0-for-5 with four strikeouts Friday against the Indians.

Ouch. Davis has pretty much been all or nothing so far this month, hitting .155 (7-for-45) with 21 strikeouts and four homers. He has a disappointing .193/.298/.387 batting line on the year and his 145 strikeouts lead the American League. Only Atlanta's B.J. Upton (152) has more in MLB.
Aug 16 - 12:00 AM

Chris Davis went 2-for-3 with a two-run homer after replacing Manny Machado at third base Monday against the Yankees.

It was Davis's fourth appearance at third base this year, and he'll likely be seeing quite a bit more action there with Machado set to miss some time. The multihit game was his first since July 19, though he did manage to hit three homers last week.
Aug 11 - 10:56 PM

Chris Davis is not in Monday's lineup against the Yankees.

Davis is really scuffling right now, so a day off to clear his head might not be a bad idea. He's expected to return to the lineup Tuesday.
Aug 11 - 4:40 PM

Chris Davis provided the Orioles' only hit in Wednesday's loss to the Blue Jays, launching a solo home run in the second inning.

Davis finished 1-for-3 on the evening, having now homered in back-to-back contests. His solo shot, which went into the second deck to the opposite field at the Rogers Centre, put the O's on the board and temporarily cut the Jays' lead in half. Despite a troublesome season, Davis has still managed to hit 19 home runs and drive in 54, but his meager .197/.307/.397 line is all that needs to be seen.
