Chris Davis (oblique) said Saturday that he'll likely be sidelined for another 7-10 days before he's able to resume baseball activities.

That's assuming that the swelling subsides as anticipated. It's unclear after that how much time he'll need to get back in the swing of things and whether or not he'll require a minor league rehab assignment.

Orioles placed 1B Chris Davis on the 10-day disabled list with a strained right oblique muscle.

Davis was forced out on Monday due to the right oblique strain. That injury was subsequently confirmed by an MRI. There is no current timetable for the slugger's return, but oblique injuries can sometimes require an extended recovery period. Trey Mancini could be in for a starting run at first base until Davis is healthy enough to return to action.

RotoGrinders.com Daily Slant: After disappointing most of the DFS community last night, the Orioles are in a sneaky bounce-back spot against Miguel Gonzalez. The right-hander is allowing hard contact rates of at least 33% to both right and left handed bats, while also owning soft contact rates no higher than 15.6%. He's also struggling to miss bats with a lowly 13.0 K% and doesn't do a great job of keeping the ball on the ground (37.9 GB%), so the power upside here is notable.

An MRI confirmed that Chris Davis is dealing with a strained right oblique muscle.

Davis is out of the Orioles' lineup on Tuesday night against the White Sox and will likely be placed on the 10-day disabled list Wednesday. Trey Mancini is filling in at first base on Tuesday versus Chicago and could be the O's primary starter there over the next couple weeks.

MLB Network's Jon Morosi reports that Chris Davis (oblique) is expected to be placed on the 10-day disabled list.

Orioles manager Buck Showalter indicated as much after Monday's game in which Davis exited with a right oblique strain. We should find out officially on Davis' status sometime this afternoon.

Chris Davis (oblique) will undergo an MRI on Tuesday.

Davis was lifted from Monday's game against the White Sox with a right oblique strain and Orioles manager Buck Showalter indicated after the contest that the first baseball might be sidelined for a while. We'll know for sure Tuesday, but a trip to the disabled list looks like an inevitability here.

Chris Davis was lifted from Monday's game against the White Sox with a right oblique strain.

Davis lined out with the bases loaded to end the top of the third inning and then didn't take the field for the bottom of the frame. The Orioles should have more on Davis' status after the game, but oblique strains almost always lead to stints on the disabled list.

Chris Davis hit his 14th home run of the season in Saturday's loss to the Yankees.

Davis had just one of the Orioles' two hits against Yankees starter Luis Severino, launching the homer with two outs in the seventh inning. His 14 homers are nice, but they come with 94 strikeouts in 59 games. The 31-year-old is hitting .227/.324/.469 in those 59 games.

Chris Davis homered in his second straight game Thursday, a win over the Red Sox.

After a prolonged slump, Davis has now found the seats in two consecutive games, giving him 12 homers on the year. He also struck out twice in Thursday's game, his 80th and 81st strikeouts on the year. Such is the essence of Davis -- plenty of homers, but plenty of strikeouts, too. When he's bad, the occasional homer isn't worth the downside, but he appears to be trending in the right direction in recent days.

Davis also singled and drew three walks, reaching base safely in all five of his plate appearances. His solo shot off of Chris Young got the O's on the board in the second inning with the game's first run. With Sunday's fine effort, he's now slashing a healthy .252/.368/.445 with six homers on the season, but he has only driven in 11 runs.
May 14 - 7:29 PM

The homer was Davis' only hit in four at-bats. It's been tough going for the first baseman this year, as he had nine homers and 25 RBI at this time a year ago. Through 34 games, the 31-year-old is hitting .239/.345/.410 with nine RBI and his five homers.
