Chris Davis went 2-for-2 with a double and a walk Sunday against the Tigers.
Judging by how they've been arranged this spring, Davis seems likely to open the season batting fifth behind Mark Trumbo, which isn't great for his fantasy value. One would think it'd change if he were able to get off to a good start. Right now, it seems like Adam Jones (2nd), Manny Machado (3rd) and Trumbo will hit consecutively, but it'd be nice to have a lefty bat in there to break up the righties. Mar 19 - 4:17 PM

Chris Davis (bronchitis) is back in the Orioles' lineup Tuesday.

Davis hasn't played since last Wednesday due to bronchitis. He returned to Orioles' camp on Monday and should be back to normal now.

Chris Davis (bronchitis) returned to Orioles camp Monday.

Davis was kept away from the O's spring training facilities all weekend so that he wouldn't pass his bronchitis to other players or coaches. "I feel a little weird today, probably just from getting worn out over the last three or four days. But yeah, I feel good enough to be here," the first baseman told reporters Monday morning.

Chris Davis is dealing with bronchitis.

Davis didn't play Thursday and won't play Friday, either, but he should be fine in a day or two. The slugger is 3-for-13 so far the plate this spring.
Mar 10 - 5:41 PM

Chris Davis reiterated on Friday that his left thumb is no longer an issue.

Davis dealt with soreness in the thumb for much of last season, and it probably helped lead to a relatively disappointing .221/.332/.459 batting line (although he still hit 38 homers and drove in 84 runs). We could see the slugger's slash line improve in 2017 if he can remain healthy.
Feb 17 - 9:08 AM

Chris Davis (thumb) said Saturday that he started swinging a bat last month and hasn't experienced any discomfort.

The O's slugger dislocated his left thumb last season, but it looks as though the injury is behind him and won't be an issue going forward. The 30-year-old slashed .221/.332/.459 with 38 homers, 84 RBI and a league-leading 219 strikeouts in 2016.
Jan 28 - 2:48 PM

Chris Davis was ejected from Tuesday night's game against the Blue Jays for arguing balls and strikes.

Davis took issue with a called third strike in the bottom of the seventh inning, and he and manager Buck Showalter were both shown the door after exchanging some heated words with home plate umpire Will Little. Davis finished the night 0-for-3 with three strikeouts and a walk. He now has 213 total strikeouts in 152 games this season. Mark Reynolds set the MLB record with 223 strikeouts in 2009.

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.

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.

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.
Fri, Sep 9, 2016 05:50:00 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.

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.
