Khris Davis hit his 23rd homer Monday against the Astros.
Davis went without a homer in his first 10 games this month, but he has four in four games since play resumed after the All-Star break. Barring a trade, he'd seem to have a good shot at becoming the first Athletic to reach 35 homers since Nick Swisher in 2006 and maybe the first to 40 since Jason Giambi in 2000. Jul 19 - 1:38 AM

Khris Davis hit two solo home runs to help the A's edge the Blue Jays 5-4 on Saturday.

Davis hit a solo blast in the second inning and another in the sixth, both off Jays starter R.A. Dickey. He's now got 22 home runs and 60 RBI on the year. Both statistics have him among the leaders in the league. Davis has been all the A's had hoped he would be when they picked him up this spring.

Khris Davis (shoulder) went 3-for-5 at the plate in his return to the lineup Saturday.

Davis missed a couple games with a bruised left shoulder, but he'll be fine. He's slugged 19 homers for the A's this season.
Jul 3 - 9:20 AM

Khris Davis (shoulder) is slated to take batting practice on Thursday.

If that goes well, he could be available off the bench tonight against San Francisco. Davis is hoping to return to the lineup Friday after being scratched from Wednesday's game with a bruised shoulder. He's been a bright spot for the A's this year with 19 HR and 53 RBI. Coco Crisp will start in his place Thursday night.
Jun 30 - 8:12 PM

Khris Davis was scratched from the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Giants due to a left shoulder contusion.

Davis ran into the wall during Tuesday's game, which might have been the cause for his late scratch on Wednesday. Coco Crisp shifts over to left from center, with Billy Burns earning the CF start in Crisp's now-vacated place. Davis should be considered day-to-day moving forward.
Jun 29 - 9:02 PM

Khris Davis has been scratched from the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Giants.

At this point, the A's have not offered a reason for Davis' absence. He homered on Tuesday, so whatever is bothering him appears to have cropped up very recently. Expect the team to pass along word of his exact ailment in due time.
Jun 29 - 8:40 PM

Khris Davis went 2-for-4 with a solo home run and three runs scored in Tuesday's win over the Giants.

Davis cracked a solo homer off Giants starter Albert Suarez in the fourth inning. At the time, it drew the A's to within 2-1. Pitcher's duel? Not so fast, my friend. The two teams would combine to score 21 additional runs through to the end of the game. For his part, Davis is now slashing .253/.291/.509 with 19 homers and 53 RBI across 265 at-bats.
Jun 29 - 2:57 AM

Khris Davis went 2-for-4 and hit a three-run homer as the Athletics topped the Angels 7-4 on Friday.

Davis has 18 homers and 49 RBI this season, so he's definitely doing something right. Of course, he also has a 71/8 K/BB ratio, which, combined with a .243 average and just eight doubles, leaves him with a .781 OPS that's far more solid than spectacular. He might be trade bait again this summer.
Jun 25 - 1:59 AM

Khris Davis (calf) finished 1-for-5 with two runs scored in his return to the A's lineup Tuesday.

Davis missed one game (Sunday against the Angels) because of cramping in his calf. The big slugger has 16 home runs and 45 RBI in 64 games this season for Oakland.
Jun 22 - 8:48 AM

Khris Davis (calf) is not in the Athletics' lineup Sunday.

Davis departed Saturday's contest with cramping in his calf. He'll be fine, but the A's will have him rest Sunday. Jake Smolinski is handling left field.
Jun 19 - 1:14 PM

Khris Davis left Saturday's game against the Angels with some minor cramping in his calf.

"I'll be alright," he told reporters after the 7-1 loss. Davis went 0-for-2 against Tim Lincecum before giving way to Max Muncy. He might sit out Sunday's series finale.
Jun 18 - 7:36 PM

Khris Davis went 2-for-4 and hit his 16th homer Friday against the Angels.

It's Davis's second homer of June after he hit 11 in May. He's one more good game away from having a .250 average for the first time all year. Right now, he's at .246.
Jun 18 - 1:56 AM

Khris Davis went 2-for-4 with an RBI single and an RBI double in Tuesday's loss to the Rangers.

Davis -- who clubbed a three-run homer and finished with five RBI on Monday -- hit an RBI double in the first inning against Rangers starter Martin Perez, following that up with an RBI single in the sixth. He struck out in his other two at-bats. For the season, the 28-year-old slugger has hit to a .249/.286/.502 triple-slash with 15 homers and 44 RBI across 217 at-bats.
Jun 15 - 2:55 AM

Khris Davis crushed a three-run home run and finished with five RBI in Monday's 14-5 win over the Rangers.

Davis drove in his first run courtesy of a fielder's choice in the first inning and his fifth run via an RBI infield single in the fifth. Wedged in-between, the rest of the damage. Stepping to the plate against Rangers starter Cesar Ramos with two on and one out in the third, Davis crushed home run No. 15 on the season. In addition to his 15 taters and 42 RBI, he is slashing .244/.283/.498 over 213 at-bats. Last season, he hit a career-best 27 home runs. He could surpass that this season, assuming he can stay healthy.
Jun 14 - 2:11 AM

Khris Davis (hand) is back in the Athletics' lineup Sunday.

Davis returned to action Friday after missing a dew games with numbness in his left hand, but he was on the bench again Saturday. Evidently he's improved enough to give it a go in this one. He's in left field and batting cleanup. The A's also have Billy Butler in the lineup at first base and Josh Phegley at catcher against southpaw John Lamb.
