Date:

Red Sox acquired OF Rajai Davis from the Athletics for OF Rafael Rincones.

This is a nice trade for the Red Sox, who add a true speed threat in Davis and bolster their outfield depth in the process. The veteran outfielder is hitting .233/.294/.353 with five homers, 18 RBI and 49 runs scored in an even 100 games. He has stolen 26 bases on the year.
Aug 23 - 7:43 PM

Evan Drellich of CSNNE reports that the Red Sox are trading for Rajai Davis.

No official announcement as of yet, but that should come after the conclusion of Wednesday's game between the A's and Orioles. Davis is hitting just .233/.294/.353 this season, but while his bat offers little in the way of power, he remains a prime threat for steals -- the veteran outfielder has swiped 26 bags in 100 games played.
Aug 23 - 7:18 PM

Rajai Davis went 1-for-4 with a steal and a run scored in Thursday's loss to the Orioles.

Davis is up to 24 steals on the season. He has been feeling frisky on the bases of late, having thieved five bases in his last five games. In terms of his bat-work, the veteran outfielder is slashing a mere .236/.294/.359 with 47 runs scored in 91 games.
Aug 11 - 1:21 AM

Rajai Davis stole three bases Saturday in the Athletics' defeat of the Angels.

Those three steals were part of a 2-for-5 night for the veteran outfielder, who scored one of the A's five runs. Davis now has 23 stolen bases in 2017, but a weak .236/.293/.359 overall batting line.
Aug 6 - 12:39 AM

Rajai Davis went 1-for-4 with a solo home run in Thursday's loss to the Giants.

Davis connected off Ty Blach for an eighth-inning solo blast, his fifth homer of the season. Two of those dingers have come in the last five days. Davis also has 20 steals to his credit.
Aug 4 - 1:27 AM

Rajai Davis went 4-for-5 with a pair of runs scored and two RBI on Saturday against the Twins, finishing a triple short of the cycle.

Well, that was certainly unexpected. Davis entered the game hitless over 13 at-bats across the past seven games. It's a nice performance from the 11-year veteran, a player the thrifty Athletics likely wouldn't mind parting with at the July 31 non-waiver trade deadline.
Jul 30 - 4:01 AM

Rajai Davis went 2-for-3 with a solo homer Friday in the win over the Indians.

The A's would love to see Davis get hot and generate some trade value this month. He could play more steadily than he has been, at least until the deadline passes.
Jul 15 - 1:16 AM

Rajai Davis went 0-for-5 with four strikeouts Tuesday in Cleveland.

He wasn't alone, as Trevor Plouffe had the same line, which is not ideal from the first two hitters in your lineup. Davis is hitting just .200/.245/.303 on the season and probably shouldn't be batting leadoff at this point, but the other hitters the A's have tried there haven't hit, either.
May 30 - 9:27 PM

Rajai Davis was hitless across three at-bats with a pair of walks and a run scored in Tuesday's loss against the Angels.

The highlight of the evening was Davis stealing two bases, giving him three overall on the season. He still has a lot of life left in his 36-year-old legs, but he needs to get on base to be able to use them. He has a dismal .217/.275/.337 slash line to date and does not warrant fantasy consideration outside of deeper AL-only leagues at this juncture.
May 10 - 4:28 AM

Athletics activated OF Rajai Davis from the 10-day disabled list.

Davis ended up missing the minimum with his left hamstring strain. The 36-year-old returns to a disappointing .214/.262/.375 batting line over 15 games.
May 2 - 1:02 PM

Rajai Davis (hamstring) is on track to return from the disabled list on Tuesday.

It's the first day he's eligible to return. Davis has batted only .214/.262/.375 in the early going for the Athletics, but he'll get his center field job back upon activation and should also spend plenty of time in the leadoff spot.
Apr 30 - 11:53 AM

Athletics placed OF Rajai Davis on the 10-day disabled list, retroactive to April 21, with a left hamstring strain.

It's not a severe strain, but the A's will take advantage of the new 10-day disabled list to get Davis some needed rest. The veteran outfielder is batting just .214/.262/.375 with one home run and one stolen base through 15 regular-season games.
Apr 25 - 5:48 PM

Rajai Davis (hamstring) remained out of the Athletics' lineup Sunday.

It will be a third straight start that he's missed due to a tight left hamstring. Davis worked out prior to Saturday's game and presumably will Sunday, as well, so it appears he's close to returning. The A's are also giving Khris Davis a day off Sunday, as they have Matt Joyce, Jaff Decker and Matt Olson in the outfield.
Apr 23 - 1:36 PM

Rajai Davis (hamstring) could return to the Athletics' lineup Sunday.

Davis sat out a second straight game Saturday with a tight left hamstring, but he tested the hammy out pregame with some running and hitting. "I think we’re potentially close to getting him in a game," manager Bob Melvin said. "That’s obviously a big part of his game, the running portion, so we don’t want to overdo it, and we want to give him time so once he’s in there, he can play his game. ... Hopefully in the next day or two, he’s back in there in some capacity."
