Khris Davis (illness) is back in the A's starting lineup for the first game of Friday's doubleheader against the White Sox.

Davis will DH and bat cleanup against White Sox right-hander James Shields after missing one game with a stomach bug. The 30-year-old slugger boasts an .850 OPS with 20 home runs and 49 RBI in 64 games this season.
Jun 22 - 12:37 PM

Khris Davis is out of the Athletics' starting lineup on Wednesday because of a stomach bug.

But he is available off the bench and should be a full-go for Thursday night's series opener against the White Sox. Chad Pinder is starting in left field and batting second Wednesday afternoon in San Diego.

Khris Davis is not in the A's starting lineup Wednesday afternoon in San Diego.

There is no DH available for the matinee game at Petco Park and Chad Pinder will get the start in left field and bat second versus Padres left-hander Joey Lucchesi. Davis has an .850 OPS with 20 home runs in 64 games this year.
Jun 20 - 1:05 PM

Khris Davis launched his 20th homer Thursday in the Athletics’ loss to Houston.

He got the A’s on the board in the second inning with a solo blast off right-hander Justin Verlander. That was Davis’ third round-tripper in as many at-bats after breaking out for two homers in Wednesday night’s loss. Davis also doubled and scored in the seventh, accounting for two of Oakland’s three runs on Thursday. The 30-year-old is on another one of his patented tears with seven jacks in his last nine outings. He’s on pace for 47 long balls, which would give him his third straight 40-homer season.
Jun 14 - 6:54 PM

Khris Davis finished 3-for-4 with a pair of solo home runs and three runs scored in Wednesday's 13-5 loss against the Astros.

Davis took Gerrit Cole deep in the sixth, and he added to his total with a solo shot off of Reymin Guduan. The slugger has managed six homers with eight RBI over his past eight outings while also striking out nine times during the span. Fantasy owners know the drill by now. Davis belts a lot of homers, but he also hits for a marginal average and strikes out a ton.
Jun 14 - 2:17 AM

Khris Davis was hitless in four at-bats with four strikeouts in Sunday's series finale against the Royals.

You have to take the good with the bad as far as Davis is concerned. He will launch titanic homers and rack up huge fantasy stat lines some days, other days he'll whiff early and often. He'll face Lance McCullers Jr. and the Astros on Tuesday. He is 4-for-14 (.286) with a double, a home run, two RBI and just two strikeouts in his brief dealings against the Houston right-hander.
Jun 10 - 9:08 PM

Khris Davis hit his 16th and 17th homers Friday against the Royals.

Both came off Jake Junis. Davis has four homers in four games and is now just three behind the AL leaders despite spending 10 days on the DL last month.
Jun 9 - 12:49 AM

Khris Davis went 2-for-4 with a two-run home run in Wednesday's 8-2 loss in Texas.

Davis has enjoyed his stay in Arlington so far, going 4-for-7 with a double, two homers and four RBI in the first two games of the series. Since the start of the 2015 season Davis has launched 20 home runs and 46 RBI across 157 at-bats against Texas pitching. His fantasy owners will have to wait until after the All-Star break for Davis to see the Rangers again from July 23-26 for a four-game set.
Jun 7 - 1:12 AM

Khris Davis homered, doubled and walked twice Tuesday against the Rangers.

The homer was his first since he came off the disabled list last Thursday. He's been good for 14 homers and 42 RBI in 199 at-bats this year.
Jun 5 - 11:06 PM

Athletics activated DH/OF Khris Davis from the 10-day disabled list.

Davis will be back in Oakland's starting lineup for Thursday afternoon's game against the Rays after missing exactly 10 days with a mild right groin strain. The 30-year-old slugger has an .805 OPS with 13 home runs and 38 RBI in 47 games played this season for the A's, who struggled offensively in his absence.
May 31 - 12:11 PM

Khris Davis (groin) will be activated from the disabled list on Thursday.

Davis ran the bases pregame on Wednesday, which was the last hurdle he needed to clear. Thursday is the first day he's eligible, so he made a quick recovery from a strained right groin. Davis has slugged 13 home runs for the Athletics this season.
May 30 - 7:34 PM

Khris Davis (groin) will take batting practice Sunday.

Davis is nearly a week removed from a strained right groin injury but is making nice progress. He'll be eligible to return on Thursday but figures to need more time than that.
May 27 - 2:02 PM

Athletics placed DH Khris Davis on the 10-day disabled list, retroactive to May 21, with a right groin strain.

Davis was diagnosed with a Grade 1 strain after an MRI on Tuesday. He suffered the injury on a swing against the Blue Jays in Sunday's series finale, and was out of the lineup on Tuesday against the Mariners. In 47 games this season, Davis has hit 13 homers and driven in 38 runs with an .805 OPS.
May 23 - 5:13 PM

An MRI taken Tuesday on Khris Davis' right groin revealed a Grade 1 strain.

That's the least-severe type of strain, but it's still usually a multi-week injury and the 30-year-old slugger will almost certainly be placed on the disabled list Wednesday. Davis suffered the injury on a swing in Sunday's series finale against the Blue Jays and hasn't played since, so the move can be made retroactive to May 21. He's sitting on an .805 OPS, 13 home runs, and 38 RBI in 47 games.
