Chris Davis went 2-for-4 with two RBI in a win over the Diamondbacks on Saturday.

The D'backs intentionally walked Adam Jones to get to Davis with the bases loaded in the fourth inning, and he made them pay by coming through with a two-run single. The multi-hit game was his first since September 6. Davis is hitting just .220/.331/.469 but has 38 homers, 84 RBI and 95 runs scored overall.

Chris Davis will bat second Tuesday against the Red Sox.

This will be his first time batting second this season. Davis is just 3-for-27 over the past week, so perhaps the change will do him some good. Mark Trumbo will bat cleanup against Eduardo Rodriguez on Tuesday while Jonathan Schoop is hitting fifth.

Chris Davis belted his 38th home run of the season as the Orioles topped the Rays 5-4 on Friday evening in Baltimore.

His solo shot off of Chris Archer in the second inning pulled the O's to within two runs at 4-2. It was his lone hit in four at-bats on the night, and one of two homers that the O's hit in the contest joining teammate Pedro Alvarez. He'll never hit for a high average, but remains a tremendous source of power and run production, hitting .222/.337/.484 with 38 homers and 82 RBI.

Chris Davis ripped a solo homer in Monday's loss to the Red Sox.

David Price served up solo shot to Chris Davis in the second inning and Manny Machado in the fourth, but those were the only two base knocks he allowed all game. Davis admitted recently that he's been dealing with soreness in the thumb area on his left hand all season, but he's now gone deep five time this month and 15 times over his last 33 contests.
Sep 12 - 10:07 PM

Chris Davis revealed Saturday that he's been dealing with soreness in the thumb area on his left hand all season.

Davis had a couple days off last week when his hand flared up on him again, but he said it didn't help. "Swinging a bat is painful," Davis said. "I went 0-for-3 [Friday] night. I had two days off before that. I don't think it made a whole lot of difference." Davis has had a relatively disappointing season with a .228/.341/.489 batting line, although he has popped 36 home runs. His hand isn't expected to heal until the offseason but shouldn't be a long-term issue.
Sep 11 - 9:50 AM

Orioles manager Buck Showalter said Friday that Chris Davis (thumb/hand) won't be 100 percent for the rest of the season.

Davis exited Tuesday and sat out Wednesday with soreness in his left thumb/hand. He underwent an X-ray on the area that sounds like came back relatively clean, but apparently the slugger will have to play through a bit of discomfort. Davis is back in the lineup Friday.
Sep 9 - 5:50 PM

Chris Davis (hand) is out of the Orioles' starting lineup Wednesday afternoon against the Rays.

Davis made an early exit Tuesday with soreness in his left palm. He said it's a minor issue that he's dealt with for much of the year, and it's possible the big slugger will be available off the Orioles' bench Wednesday. Steve Pearce is starting at first base and batting fifth versus Rays left-hander Drew Smyly.
Sep 7 - 11:27 AM

Chris Davis left Tuesday's game against the Rays after experiencing soreness in his left palm.

It doesn't sound like a serious issue, as Orioles manager Buck Showalter told reporters that he expects the slugger to want to play Wednesday. Davis was 2-for-3 with his 35th home run of the season Tuesday before exiting in the bottom of the fifth inning. Steve Pearce finished out the game at first base.
Sep 6 - 10:42 PM

Chris Davis was removed from Tuesday's game against the Rays with an apparent injury.

He struck out swinging in the top of the fifth and was replaced at first base by Steve Pearce in the bottom of that frame. Look for an update within the hour. Davis finished the night 2-for-3 with a solo home run, his 35th home run of the season.
Sep 6 - 8:56 PM

Chris Davis finished 2-for-4 with a homer and three RBI in the Orioles' 7-3 defeat of the Rays on Monday.

Davis hit a solo homer in the top of the fourth inning and a two-run single in the top of the fifth to back a surprising complete-game effort from Orioles starting pitcher Ubaldo Jimenez. Davis carries a relatively disappointing .818 OPS in 133 games this season, though he's now tallied 34 home runs and 77 RBI.
Sep 5 - 4:14 PM

Chris Davis belted a pair of home runs as the Orioles were crushed by the Yankees on Saturday afternoon.

Davis got the O's on the board with a two-run shot off of Chad Green in the third inning then added on a towering solo shot in the fifth as part of back-to-back jacks with Mark Trumbo. Davis finished the afternoon 2-for-3 and is now hitting .227/.340/.482 with 32 homers and 72 RBI on the season.
Aug 27 - 4:39 PM

Chris Davis singled and smacked a solo home run in Tuesday's win over the Nationals.

He singled and scored in the Orioles' three-run third inning and then added an insurance run with a long homer in the eighth off of Yusmeiro Petit. The dinger was Crush's 30th of the season, giving him at least 30 bombs in four out of the last five campaigns. Six of those homers have come over his last seven games.
Aug 23 - 11:15 PM

Chris Davis crunched his 29th home run of the season in Saturday's loss to the Astros.

The solo blast was the only run his team could muster against Astros starter Mike Fiers. Davis finished the night 1-for-2 with a walk. He was removed for a pinch-hitter in the eighth inning. The game was out of hand by that point so presumably the move was made purely to give Davis a bit of extra rest. Davis has a lowly .224 batting average but the 29 home runs, 67 RBI and 78 runs scored help make up for it.
Aug 20 - 10:43 PM

Chris Davis homered twice in Thursday's win over the Astros.

Astros starter Joe Musgrove allowed three homers before exiting, but Davis saved his best work for reliever James Hoyt and first baseman Tyler White -- an indication of how the night went for the Astros -- hitting solo homers off each. Davis now has 27 home runs on the year, tied with teammate Manny Machado for ninth-most in the American League. Davis also has 65 RBI and 76 runs scored to go along with a .222/.338/.456 line.
