Chris Davis (elbow) is expected to return to the lineup for the Orioles on Sunday.
There was some hope that Davis might be able to return on Saturday -- which is Davis's birthday -- but Baltimore will reportedly give him one extra day of rest before putting him in the lineup. He'll be ready for Opening Day, and he'll look to bounce back from his disappointing 2017 campaign. Mar 16 - 12:24 PM

Chris Davis (elbow) hopes to play this weekend.

After receiving a cortisone injection in his right elbow on Saturday, Davis was able to take top-hand swings on Monday and two-hand swings on Tuesday. So he's moving in the right direction. Assuming Davis continues to progress, he should still have enough time to get ready for Opening Day.

Chris Davis received a cortisone injection in his right elbow on Saturday.

O's skipper Buck Showalter indicated that it wasn't a setback for the veteran slugger, but an attempt to speed up his recovery process.

Chris Davis (forearm) is expected to resume baseball activities early next week.

Mar 9 - 1:02 PM

Chris Davis (forearm) won't return to Grapefruit League action until Saturday, at the earliest.

Davis has some lingering discomfort in his right forearm, but an MRI taken last weekend turned up negative and the Orioles are optimistic that he will be fine for the start of the regular season. The veteran slugger probably only needs 20 more spring at-bats, maybe less, to get his timing right.

An MRI on Chris Davis's forearm showed no structural damage.

Davis was feeling minor tightness in his right forearm and went for an MRI, but it came back clean. He'll be out 3-5 days and maybe even longer, but he should be OK in the long run. He's looking to bounce back this year after swatting just 26 homers last year.

Chris Davis (forearm) will either DH or not play on Friday.

Davis is working through some forearm soreness, though he did hit his first home run of the spring on Wednesday out of the DH spot. The 31-year-old slugger should be 100 percent for the start of the regular season.
Mar 1 - 12:29 PM

Chris Davis was moved to designated hitter on Wednesday due to soreness in his forearm.

The issue isn't believed to be serious and this was mostly just a precautionary measure. Davis hit his first home run of the spring in Wednesday's Grapefruit League game against the Cardinals, so it's clearly nothing too bad. The 31-year-old slugger is coming off one of the worst seasons of his career but makes for a decent bounceback candidate in 2018.
Feb 28 - 5:18 PM

Chris Davis is getting the night off Wednesday.

Adam Jones and Tim Beckham are also sitting, though their absences are injury-related. Davis appears to be getting a routine breather. Pedro Alvarez will start at first base and bat cleanup versus Pirates right-hander Chad Kuhl.

Tue, Sep 26, 2017 09:51:00 PM

Chris Davis clubbed his 25th home run of the season as the Orioles fell to the Rays on Friday.

Davis victimized Alex Cobb for the solo homer in the fourth inning, pulling the Orioles to within three runs at 6-3, that would be the extent of their offense however. He finished the night 2-for-3 plus a walk, raising his season slash to .218/.311/.429 to go along with his 25 bombs and 57 RBI.
