Davis, who is arbitration-eligible for the first time, is projected by 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.

He is now batting .247/.307/.524 with 42 bombs and 102 RBI in his first season in the American League. He has blown way past his previous career high of 27 homers set last year as a Brewer.

Khris Davis (illness) returned to the Athletics starting lineup on Friday, going 0-for-3 with a walk in a loss to the Rangers.

Khris Davis slugged his 39th and 40th homers of 2016 in the Athletics' 5-2 win over the Rangers on Sunday.

He popped Colby Lewis for a solo shot in the top of the fourth and added a two-run bomb against Keone Kela in the eighth. Davis has put together a terrific first year in Oakland, now with an .842 OPS, 40 home runs, and 99 RBI in 140 games. He was one of the best draft-day values in fantasy baseball for 2016.

Khris Davis slugged his 38th long ball as the Athletics fell to the Rangers in Texas on Friday.

The lefty-masher tagged Cole Hamels for a two-run bomb that opened the scoring in the fourth inning. Davis finished the night 1-for-3 and also drew a walk. He has come on incredibly strong after a slow start and is now hitting .250/.304/.521 with 38 homers and 96 RBI.

Khris Davis homered in his second straight game Tuesday, hitting his 37th home run of the season in a win over the Royals.

Unlike in Monday's game, when he hit a three-run bomb, the homer Tuesday was a solo shot. Davis' 37 homers are fourth-most in the American League, and he's also got 90 RBI on the year. It's impressive that he's doing this while playing half his games in the Coliseum, especially considering he never hit more than 27 while calling Miller Park home. Davis is one of the game's elite power hitters.

It was a two-run shot in the top of the first inning that set the tone for the afternoon. Davis later drew a walk and scored his second run of the game on a three-run shot from Stephen Vogt. The 28-year-old outfielder is setting himself up for a nice payday in his first turn through salary arbitration this winter.

Khris Davis went 1-for-3 with an RBI and a run scored in a win over the Cardinals on Saturday.

The walk was more important than the hit because it came with the bases loaded to produce the Athletics' first run of the game. He scored a run in the eighth inning by sprinting home from third base on a ground ball to the first baseman. He is now batting .257/.300/.528 with 33 home runs and 83 RBI in 451 at-bats.
