Khris Davis went 2-for-3 with a two-run home run in Wednesday's win over the Rangers.

Davis is off to a hot, hot start and he kept that going against the Rangers, clubbing a two-run home run off Mike Hauschild in the fifth inning. The home run was his seventh of the young season. The slugger is slashing a sizzling .321/.355/.732 over his first 56 at-bats of the 2017 campaign.

Khris Davis had another strong performance Saturday, finishing 3-for-5 with a home run and two runs scored in a loss to the Astros.

Davis and Astros outfielder George Springer, who also homered in Saturday's contest, are tied atop the American League with six homers apiece. It's been a brilliant start to the season for the 29-year-old, who is hitting .340/.373/.766 with those six homers, eight RBI and 11 runs scored -- also best in the league -- in 12 games. He's never hit for average, so that may be unsustainable, but the power is most definitely not a fluke.

Khris Davis slugged his fourth home run of the season Monday in the A's defeat of the Royals.

It was a two-run shot in the top of the fourth inning off Royals starter Ian Kennedy. Davis is now batting .345 with a 1.222 OPS through 33 plate appearances this season, and he now boasts 46 home runs and 108 RBI through 158 games in an Oakland uniform.

Khris Davis went 2-for-4 with a pair of singles in Sunday's loss to the Rangers.

Davis would score the A's only run of the game when he came home on a wild pitch in the eighth inning. His squad ultimately fell by an 8-1 final. The slugger is off to a hot start on the season, going 9-for-25 with three home runs, four RBI and five runs scored through the first week of play.
Apr 9 - 6:39 PM

Khris Davis went 3-for-4 with a pair of solo homers Monday to lead the A's to a 4-2 win over the Angels.

They had to be solo shots; the top three hitters in the A's lineup went 0-for-12 with a walk in this one and Davis never did hit with anyone on. Both homers came off breaking balls, the first on a bad Ricky Nolasco curve and the second on a worse J.C. Ramirez slider. This is a much better start than he got off to in his 42-homer 2016 campaign; he didn't homer until April 21 last year and he finished April at .221/.264/.372.
Apr 4 - 1:27 AM

Athletics manager Bob Melvin said Friday that both Khris Davis (quad) and Trevor Plouffe will also play in Saturday's exhibition contest.

Davis needs to get reps in the outfield after missing nearly a week of action with his quad issue. Both players are on track to be in the Opening Day lineup.
Mar 31 - 8:52 PM

Khris Davis (quad) is not on the A's lineup card for Monday or Tuesday.

He did play in a minor league game Sunday, but the Athletics are holding Davis out of Cactus League play as he works through a sore quad. It sounds like he's not in jeopardy of missing Opening Day.
Mar 27 - 12:41 PM

Khris Davis (quad) is playing in a minor league game Sunday.

Davis has dealt with a sore quad for a few days, but the A's have insisted that it's a minor injury. Assuming all goes well Sunday, he should be cleared to return to Cactus League games this week. Davis is coming off a breakout power season for Oakland that saw him pop 42 longballs.
Mar 26 - 1:23 PM

Khris Davis will be held out of game action until at least Sunday because of a minor quad injury.

It sounds like the Athletics are just being cautious with their slugger here. Davis is batting .250 this spring and has yet to homer after going deep 42 times in his first season in Oakland.
Mar 24 - 1:25 PM

Khris Davis will not play for Mexico in the World Baseball Classic.

Davis said that he feels "horrible" about not participating, but he thinks he's "overextended" and wants to focus on getting ready for the season. The slugger hit 42 homers and drove in 102 runs in 2016.
Feb 19 - 10:51 AM

Khris Davis won his arbitration hearing over the Athletics, reports Jon Heyman of FanRag Sports.

Davis will make $5 million in 2017 rather than the $4.65 million salary submitted by the Athletics. The 29-year-old slugger had a strong case after setting career-highs with 42 homers and 102 RBI in 2016. He was arbitration-eligible for the first time this winter.
Feb 1 - 1:33 PM

The Athletics and Khris Davis will have their arbitration hearing on Tuesday.

Davis, who is coming off 42 homers and 102 RBI in 2016, requested $5 million and was offered $4.65 million by the Athletics when arbitration figures were exchanged earlier this month. The arbitration panel will decide on one salary or the other for 2017.
Jan 31 - 12:48 PM

Khris Davis requested $5 million and was offered $4.65 million by the Athletics when arbitration figures were exchanged on Friday.

Davis, who is arbitration-eligible for the first time, is projected by MLBTradeRumors.com to earn $5 million in arbitration, which is the exact amount that the 29-year-old filed for. He's coming off a tremendous offensive season where he slashed .247/.307/.524 with career-bests of 42 homers and 102 RBI. Davis earned just $524,500 in 2016.
Jan 13 - 6:56 PM

Khris Davis is absent from the Athletics' lineup Sunday.

They've simply opted to give him a day off. Jake Smolinski will handle left field. Danny Valencia is also sitting out Sunday, as Matt Olson is in right.
