Chris Davis crushed a three-run homer to key his team's 5-3 win over the Royals on Wednesday.

He launched an offering from starter Eric Skoglund over the left field wall with Adam Jones and Jonathan Schoop along for the ride in the fourth inning. Maybe the blast will give Davis a nice momentum boost as he hopes to improve upon his atrocious .176/.269/.294 slash line. He now has four home runs and 13 RBI in 134 plate appearances. He needs a few more strong games if he wants to solidify his spot in the starting lineup -- or even his roster slot.
May 9 - 10:48 PM

Chris Davis went 1-for-3 with an RBI single in Thursday's loss to the Angels.

The O's have had some bad losses this season, and Thursday's 12-3 defeat can certainly be filed away as such. Davis picked up an RBI single in the sixth inning, but the Angels had already posted so many runs by that point that it was an essentially meaningless knock. Meaningless or not, the veteran slugger could use anything positive these days, as he's hitting just .184/.286/.265 with two home runs and eight RBI in 28 games this year. Davis will have $92 million remaining on his contract after this season.
May 4 - 1:18 AM

Orioles manager Buck Showalter said Sunday that the club is working with Chris Davis to get him back on track at the plate.

After hitting .215 with 26 homers and a .732 OPS over 128 games last season, Davis is struggling with a miserable .167/.257/.256 batting line through 25 games this year. He's just 1-for-18 with 12 strikeouts against southpaws. While Showalter didn't get into specifics about what they are working on, Davis got Saturday and Sunday off with left-handers Francisco Liriano and Daniel Norris on the hill for Detroit. "He and Scott are working on [some things], trying to make some adjustments," said Showalter. "So, we look forward to him being back in the lineup with some things maybe that can help him for Tuesday. We'll see." Davis is making $23 million this season and still has $92 million owed to him from 2019-2022 in his franchise record deal with the O's.
Apr 30 - 12:05 PM

Chris Davis is not in the Orioles' lineup Sunday.

Davis has just one hit against lefties this season, so he'll take a seat with the Tigers throwing southpaw Daniel Norris. Trey Mancini has moved in to first base and Joey Rickard has taken his spot in left field.
Apr 29 - 11:22 AM

Chris Davis has been playing through an illness the last few days.

Davis is in the lineup again Monday. He has five hits over his last 17 at-bats, which certainly qualifies as a hot streak considering what he's done this season.
Apr 23 - 5:02 PM

Chris Davis homered, walked twice and struck out twice against the Tigers on Thursday.

The homer was just Davis's second in 62 at-bats and 73 plate appearances this year. He's hitting .148, and he's scored a total of three runs. He can't help but get better than this, but he's looking more and more done as a particularly useful player in mixed leagues.
Apr 19 - 4:45 PM

Chris Davis went 0-for-4 with three strikeouts Friday against the Rangers.

Davis struck out swinging in his first two at-bats against Eduardo Rodriguez before being caught looking by the southpaw in his third at-bat. The 32-year-old slugger had a two-hit night on Wednesday, but he has looked lost for the most part this season, batting just .111/.231/.178 with one homer and two RBI through 13 games.
Apr 14 - 12:46 AM

Chris Davis (illness) has returned to the Orioles' lineup Monday.

Davis was held out of Sunday's lineup due to illness, but he's feeling better. He's batting fifth against lefty J.A. Happ.
Apr 9 - 3:59 PM

Chris Davis is absent from the Orioles' lineup Sunday due to illness.

The O's hope he'll be available off the bench. Trey Mancini is at first base and Craig Gentry is in left field Sunday.
Apr 8 - 10:38 AM

Chris Davis slugged his first home run of the season Friday against the Yankees.

Davis entered Friday’s action in a 2-for-25 slump to begin the year. He started the season out of the leadoff spot, but he hit fifth on Thursday and sixth on Friday. Trey Mancini has hit leadoff the last two days.
Apr 7 - 2:00 AM

Chris Davis is out of the Orioles' starting lineup on Wednesday afternoon against the Astros.

Davis served as the O's leadoff man in their first five games of the season and went 1-for-20 with three walks. He finished 0-for-5 with four strikeouts in Tuesday night's loss to the Astros. Adam Jones will DH and bat fourth and Danny Valencia will play first base and hit sixth Wednesday versus Houston lefty Dallas Keuchel.
Apr 4 - 11:58 AM

Orioles manager Buck Showalter is considering moving Chris Davis out of the leadoff spot in the lineup.

"I'm not married to it, but we certainly are looking for something to try and get him going a little bit early in the season," Showalter said to reporters. Davis has gotten off to a slow start with no hits in the first three games, but he's only struck out once. He's one of the few players in the Baltimore offense who works counts and draws walks, so there is no perfect answer for who hits at the top. We'll see how long this experiment lasts.

Chris Davis is batting leadoff for the Orioles on Opening Day against the Twins.

O's manager Buck Showalter flirted with the idea over the final week of spring training and is now going ahead with it. Davis isn't your traditional leadoff hitter -- he posted a weak .309 OBP in 2017 -- but this is certainly a boost to his daily fantasy stock.
Mar 29 - 10:57 AM

Chris Davis hit his second homer of the spring Friday against the Rays.

Davis has been hitting leadoff this week to get him more at-bats after the time he missed because of a sore elbow. He'll probably bat fifth or sixth once the season starts.
