Rajai Davis went 2-for-6 with a two-run home run and two runs scored in Sunday's win over the Twins.

Davis hit the two-run shot in the seventh inning his seventh home run of the season. The multi-hit game was Davis' first since August 11, snapping a rough 4-for-33 stretch. The speedy outfielder is hitting .280/.318/.410 overall.
Aug 24 - 7:59 PM

Rajai Davis had an RBI single and stole a base in Tuesday's win over the Rays.

Davis exited Sunday's contest with a bruised thumb, but he wound up not missing a game. The outfielder sports a .289/.328/.414 with 31 stolen bases this season.
Aug 20 - 5:25 AM

Rajai Davis is listed as day-to-day after leaving Sunday's game against the Mariners with a bruised thumb.

Davis had been a demon on the basepaths prior to departing, swiping three bags. He should return to the Tigers lineup in a day or two.
Aug 17 - 5:39 PM

Rajai Davis went 2-for-4 with a stolen base and a run scored in Sunday's win over the Rockies.

Davis has been on fire since taking over as the Tigers' everyday center fielder, going 7-for-13 with two doubles, three RBI and four runs scored in the series against the Rockies. The good stretch has his season line up to .305/.344/.434, and the stolen base was his 26th of the year. Getting everyday at-bats atop a very good Tigers lineup, Davis is an unquestioned mixed-league asset the rest of the way.
Aug 3 - 4:12 PM

Rajai Davis led the Tigers offensive attack in Friday's 4-2 victory over the Rockies, going 2-for-4 with a pair of runs scored and two RBI.

Davis got the scoring started in the fifth inning with a two-run single off opposing hurler Franklin Morales and came around to score on an Ian Kinsler double. He also singled in the seventh inning and scored a valuable insurance run when Victor Martinez knocked him in. Set to see increased playing time after the departure of Austin Jackson, the speedy outfielder should be owned and started in all formats.
Aug 1 - 10:23 PM

Rajai Davis went 3-for-3 with a run scored in Sunday's loss to the Royals.

Davis has enjoyed the month of July thus far, going 14-for-32 (.438) with five RBI and six runs scored. The emergence of J.D. Martinez has complicated the playing time in the Tigers outfield, but Davis' .296/.338/.432 line and 24 steals should continue to get his bat in the lineup semi-regularly in the second half.
Jul 13 - 6:07 PM

Rajai Davis singled three times and knocked in three runs in four at-bats as the Tigers manhandled the Dodgers in a win on Tuesday.

Throw a dart at the Tigers' lineup to pick a standout star of the game, as everyone was hitting on Tuesday. They banged out 20 hits -- none of them home runs -- while scoring 14 runs against Dodgers pitching. Davis knocked in a pair of runs on two RBI singles, and notched his third RBI with a sacrifice fly. Davis has been an unlikely spark plug for the Tigers, slashing .286/.326/.420 with six home runs, 32 RBI, and 22 stolen bases.
Jul 8 - 10:58 PM

Rajai Davis hit a walkoff grand slam off Sean Doolittle as the Tigers defeated the A's 5-4 on Monday.

That's some extra degree of difficulty right there, hitting the grand slam down three runs off one of the league's most unhittable pitchers. Davis also singled and stole a base to end June on a high note. It was still hit worst month of the season, which, combined with J.D. Martinez's emergence, has caused him to lose playing time against righties.
Jun 30 - 11:53 PM

Rajai Davis went 3-for-5 with an RBI and a stolen base in Tuesday's win over the Rangers.

Davis swatted three singles after collecting just three hits over his previous 20 at-bats. Davis also stole his first base since June 16, his 21st of the year. With Torii Hunter set to return and J.D. Martinez stating his case to remain in the lineup, Davis' playing time may soon see a hit. Games like Tuesday's could garner a few more starts for the 33-year-old, though.
Jun 25 - 12:14 AM

Making his first start in four days, Rajai Davis went 3-for-5 with a double, two RBI and his 20th steal Monday against the Royals.

Davis has been sitting in favor of J.D. Martinez against a lot of righties lately, and that's probably for the best, even though he's hitting better than usual versus righties this year. He's been a useful mixed-league outfielder so far, but that's going to change if he continues to spend so much time on the bench.
Jun 16 - 11:34 PM

Rajai Davis (shoulder) has returned to the Tigers lineup on Friday.

Davis left Wednesday's game with a bruised left shoulder and sat out Thursday as a precautionary measure. Fantasy owners can safely insert the speedster back into lineups for the weekend series against the Mariners.
May 30 - 6:44 PM

Rajai Davis left Wednesday's game against the Athletics with a bruised left shoulder.

It's unclear when Davis hurt the shoulder, but he was replaced by Austin Jackson in center field to start the bottom of the seventh inning. The Tigers are calling Davis day-to-day.
May 29 - 12:12 AM

Rajai Davis belted a two-run homer in Wednesday's win over the Orioles.

Davis' blast in the sixth inning provided a two-run cushion after the Orioles had trimmed a 6-0 lead down to a 6-5 deficit. It's already the third longball on the year for Davis, who is on pace to easy set a career high with 14 dingers. Davis has also swiped 13 bases this season.
May 14 - 4:09 PM

Rajai Davis is not in the Tigers starting lineup for Saturday's afternoon tilt against the Twins.

It's merely a routine day off for the speedy outfielder against opposing right-hander Kyle Gibson. Don Kelly will draw the start in his place and hit sixth for the Tigers.
