Davis has had a difficult season from an average perspective, managing a dismal .214 average through 309 at-bats. While he has posted 18 homers and 43 RBI to help somewhat in the power categories, his subpar average and 131 strikeouts do not do many fantasy owners any favors.

He'll take a seat against lefty Blake Snell. Mark Trumbo is drawing the start at first base while Welington Castillo serves as the DH. Caleb Joseph will start behind the plate and catch Kevin Gausman.

Chris Davis homered twice, including a grand slam, and collected six RBI in the Orioles' 12-1 thrashing of the Rangers on Tuesday.

Davis got some help in the first inning when a catchable ball bounced off Rangers center fielder Carlos Gomez's glove and fell over the wall for a two-run home run. He left nothing up to chance in the fourth, mashing a pitch deep into the right-center field bleachers for a grand slam. The 31-year-old has a typically Chris Davis line through Tuesday's game, hitting .221/.315/.468 but with 16 homers in 66 games.
