Chris Davis (illness) wants to play on Thursday.

Davis has missed three consecutive contests due to a stomach virus. He took batting practice prior to Wednesday's game against the Yankees, though, and looks very close to making his return to the lineup. Once the slugger is past this illness, fantasy owners can feel free to utilize him as normal. It shouldn't be long.

Chris Davis (illness) is not in the starting lineup for Wednesday's game against the Yankees.

Davis has been out with a stomach virus since Monday. Mark Trumbo will man first base in his absence. The O's and Yanks will square off in an afternoon affair on Thursday, so unless Davis is feeling better tomorrow morning, he could be in danger of missing his fourth consecutive game.

RotoGrinders.com Daily Slant: With Davis, Manny Machado and Matt Wieters all out of tonight's lineup, Michael Pineda becomes a much more interesting target. He was already on a short list of viable starters given the ugliness of tonight's slate, but he's now arguably atop the rankings in terms of GPP pitchers. Pineda's 13.7 SwStr% is 5th best in baseball and his 21.1 K-BB% is 7th best, so his biggest concern remains the long ball - that concern is alleviated to a degree without the Orioles best two hitters in the lineup.

Chris Davis remains out of the Orioles' starting lineup Tuesday night against the Yankees.

Davis has been battling a stomach virus since the weekend and had to go to a local hospital Sunday for fluids. He is still considered day-to-day. Ryan Flaherty is starting at first base and Pedro Alvarez will serve as the O's designated hitter on Tuesday versus Yankees right-hander Nate Eovaldi.

Chris Davis is out of Monday's lineup versus the Yankees due to a stomach virus.

Davis had to go to the hospital on Sunday night in order to get fluids. Consider him day-to-day.
Jul 18 - 5:42 PM

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

It appears to be a simple day off. Utility man Ryan Flaherty will slide over to first base and bat ninth against Yankees right-hander Ivan Nova. Davis is among the league leaders in home runs with 22 but is only hitting .236 with 126 strikeouts in 326 at-bats.
Jul 18 - 3:56 PM

Chris Davis went 2-for-4 and hit a two run home run but the Orioles lost on Saturday.

The home run was his 21st of the season. Davis has scored 60 times and knocked in 56 runs. He strikes out a lot, and that leads to a low batting average. But he walks plenty too, and that leads to a good .351 on-base percentage. His power, of course, is unquestioned after he hit 47 home runs last year and 53 home runs in 2013.
Jul 3 - 2:24 AM

Chris Davis went 3-for-4 with a solo home run and a double in Tuesday's win over the Padres.

Davis struck for a solo home run to lead off the sixth inning. That was just a throat-clearing for the rest of the frame, as the Orioles would score six more times before the Padres managed to extricate themselves from the mess. Over his last five games, Davis has driven in 10 runs. For the season as a whole, he is slashing .247/.359/.517 with 19 homers and 52 RBI across 271 at-bats.
Jun 29 - 2:17 AM

Chris Davis connected for a first-inning grand slam in Sunday's 12-5 win over the Rays.

Davis launched his granny off of Rays starter Drew Smyly in the first inning. He would later add a single to finish 2-for-4. The slugger is working to a .240/.355/.498 triple-slash with 18 homers and an even 50 RBI over 267 at-bats. It will take a nice second-half power push to reach the 47 dingers he hit in 2015.
Jun 26 - 5:35 PM

Chris Davis smashed his 14th home run of the season on Friday, finishing the game 1-for-3 with a walk and two RBI in a loss to the Blue Jays.

Davis' blast off Marco Estrada gave the Orioles a brief 3-2 lead that they soon squandered. He hasn't been able to match his MVP-caliber stats from a year ago, but he is still providing his owners with plenty of power. His .222/.343/.467 line hurts his owners in leagues that use AVG as a scoring category, but he looks a lot better in OBP leagues. Davis hit 47 home runs last year and 53 in 2013, so he is capable of going on an epic tear at any time.
Jun 10 - 11:08 PM

Chris Davis homered and drove home three runs on Thursday, leading the Orioles to a come-from-behind 6-5 victory over the Blue Jays in Toronto.

After hitting a sacrifice fly in the third inning, Davis tied the game with an opposite field blast in the seventh inning off of Jays' left-hander Aaron Loup. He played the role of hero in the ninth inning, plating Joey Rickard with a sacrifice fly to send the O's home as walk-off winners. He finished the night 2-for-3 and is now hitting .220/.340/.455 with 13 homers and 33 RBI on the season.
Jun 9 - 11:27 PM

Chris Davis (thumb) is back in the Orioles' lineup for Thursday's game against the Blue Jays.

Davis is back after missing Wednesday's game with thumb discomfort. Last year's home run champ is hitting just .214 with 79 strikeouts in 206 at-bats. He'll start at first base and bat cleanup against Jays right-hander Marcus Stroman.
Jun 9 - 4:35 PM

Orioles manager Buck Showalter said that Chris Davis (thumb) should be able to return to the lineup on Thursday.

Davis is sitting out Wednesday's game against the Royals due to a few minor nagging physical issues, including some thumb discomfort. Just a day of rest and relaxation for the 30-year-old slugger -- the first he has had all year. Mark Trumbo earns the start at first in his place.
Jun 8 - 5:03 PM

Chris Davis is out of the Orioles' starting lineup Wednesday night against the Royals.

Mark Trumbo will start at first base and Pedro Alvarez will serve as the Orioles' designated hitter against Kansas City right-hander Edinson Volquez. It's the first day off this season for Davis.
Jun 8 - 3:11 PM

Chris Davis clobbered his 11th home run of the season as the Orioles topped the Yankees 6-5 on Friday night in Baltimore.

His solo shot off Yankees starter Nathan Eovaldi pulled the O's to within a run at 3-2 in the fourth inning. Davis also drew a walk in the contest, finishing the night 1-for-3 with a pair of runs scored. For the season, he's now hitting .218/.341/.440 with 11 home runs and 29 RBI.
