Chris Davis crushed his sixth homer of the season as the Orioles fell to the Royals on Sunday afternoon in Kansas City.

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.

Chris Davis hit his fifth home run of the season in Saturday's loss to the Royals.

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.

Chris Davis swatted his fourth home run of the season on Friday, powering the Orioles to a 4-2 victory over the White Sox.

David crushed his solo homer off of White Sox' starter Miguel Gonzalez in the fourth inning, increasing the O's lead to 2-0. He also singled twice and drew a walk, finishing the night 3-for-3 with a pair of runs scored. After his impressive night, Davis is now hitting .250/.354/.427 with four homers and seven RBI.

Chris Davis (elbow) is back in the Orioles' lineup Monday against the Red Sox.

Davis was scratched from Sunday's lineup after being hit in the elbow with a pitch on Saturday, but he was later able to enter the game to play defense in the 11th inning. It doesn't sound like something that should be a concern moving forward.
May 1 - 3:11 PM

Chris Davis was scratched from Sunday's lineup with a sore right elbow.

Davis' elbow is still a little tender after he was hit by a pitch on Saturday. He still wanted to play Sunday, so it's probably safe to assume he'll be back in there Monday. Trey Mancini has moved from right field to first base and Craig Gentry entered the lineup in right.

Chris Davis blasted one of four Orioles' home runs on Friday in a 6-4 victory over the Blue Jays.

Jonathan Schoop was first to act with a solo shot in the fifth inning, followed shortly by a two-run blast off the bat of J.J. Hardy. Davis added a solo shot of his own off of Aaron Sanchez in the sixth and Seth Smith finished off the power display with a solo blast of his own in the ninth. Davis also doubled and drew a walk in the ballgame, finishing the night 2-for-3 with a pair of runs scored. He's off to an impressive .364/.432/.727 start to the season with three long balls and four RBI.
Apr 14 - 10:31 PM

Chris Davis went 3-for-5 with a homer and a double Wednesday against the Red Sox.

Over the thumb injury that hampered him last year, Davis is hitting .385 with two homers in 26 at-bats through seven games. He's not going to be very consistent, but he should prove more productive than he was in 2016.
Apr 12 - 11:23 PM

Chris Davis drilled a solo home run for his only hit in three chances against the Blue Jays on Wednesday.

He circled the bases in the fourth inning after taking J.A. Happ deep to left-center. It was his first bomb of the season. Davis hit .221/.332/.459 with 38 homers, 99 runs and 84 RBI a year ago.
Apr 5 - 9:58 PM

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.

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.
Mar 14 - 8:34 AM

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.
Mar 13 - 8:51 AM

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.
