Khris Davis walked and hit a grand slam in four trips to the plate Thursday against the Mariners.
Davis cleared the bases with a grand slam to left field off of Roenis Elias in the first inning. Though it was his first homer of the spring, Davis has been hitting extremely well in Cactus League play, batting .389 (14-for-36) with 12 RBI. Davis will get regular at-bats out of left field and could improve on last year's numbers, when he finished with 22 home runs and 69 RBI in 549 plate appearances. Mar 26 - 7:29 PM

Khris Davis went 2-for-3 with two doubles and three RBI versus the Royals on Wednesday.

Davis put the Brewers on the board early with a two-run double in the first inning, then added another run in the fifth with his second double to push his team's lead to 7-1 at the time. Davis is now hitting .350 (7-for-20) with five doubles and five RBI on the spring. He is the favorite over Gerardo Parra to start in left field to begin the season.

Khris Davis indicated Friday that he's working to improve his overall plate discipline, getting back to the approach that made him successful in the minor leagues.

Davis admitted his over-aggressiveness led to struggles during his first full season, "I was a little eager, wanting to please too much, too early. I found out I'm human." As the 2014 season progressed, Davis became more impatient at the dish and his numbers suffered. Still, the 27-year-old slashed .244/.299/.457 with 22 homers and 69 RBI in 144 games and could be poised for an even bigger year in 2015 if he can indeed improve his discipline.

Khris Davis went hitless in four at-bats in his return to action Saturday.

Davis had missed the last couple games with a sore forearm. The 26-year-old sports a .249/.305/.471 batting line with 22 homers and 68 RBI over 134 contests for the Brewers this season.

Khris Davis is not in Thursday's lineup due to a sore right forearm.

It doesn't appear to be anything to worry about, as Davis is expected back in the lineup Friday. Gerardo Parra is in left field Thursday in Davis' place.

Khris Davis finished 3-for-4 with a run scored in Wednesday's 6-2 loss to the Cubs.

Davis was the only Brewer doing much of anything at the dish on Wednesday. He scored the Brewers' first run in the second inning on Logan Schafer's single, but was stranded the other two times he reached base. Davis has had a productive year, posting a .254/.310/.481 slash line with 21 home runs and 66 RBI.

Khris Davis finished 2-for-2 with two RBI and a run scored in Tuesday's win over the Blue Jays.

Davis drove in a run with a sacrifice fly in the third inning before getting in on the action with an RBI double in the fifth. His 63 RBI are second-most on the team, behind only Ryan Braun. The outfielder has been hot and cold but owns a .255/.308/.487 line overall.

Batting cleanup against a righty, Khris Davis hit his 20th homer Thursday in the win over the Cubs.

Davis entered with a .230/.287/.443 line against righties this year, so cleanup probably isn't where he belongs against them. Against Edwin Jackson, though, it worked just fine. Davis currently ranks second in the Brewers in homers and runs scored (61), plus tied for second with 60 RBI.

Khris Davis (elbow) hit a pinch-hit solo home run Wednesday in the Brewers' loss to the Giants.

Davis was held out of the starting lineup with a sore left elbow. He's sharing time in left field now with Gerardo Parra, diminishing his fantasy potential for the stretch run. Davis has big power (18 home runs and a .477 SLG), but his average is .252 and he owns a .302 OBP.

Khris Davis is out Tuesday with a sore left elbow.

It doesn't sound like a major concern. Gerardo Parra is starting in left field Tuesday against the Giants.

Khris Davis wasn't in Saturday's lineup because Brewers manager Ron Roenicke wanted to see Gerardo Parra start in left, not because of Davis' calf tightness.

Davis left Friday's game against the Cardinals with tightness in his left calf. "(Parra’s) not in the lineup because of (Davis’ calf)," said Roenicke. "He’s in the lineup because he matched up well with (St. Louis starter Justin) Masterson. I was going to play Parra tomorrow because he matched up well with (Lance) Lynn but now he’s not pitching so ‘KD’ will probably be back in there." Upon acquiring Parra from Arizona, Roenicke told Davis that he is still the primary left fielder. "I definitely want to play every day but at the same time I do believe (Parra) can help us win ball games," said Davis. "He’s a great player; a nasty defender and a tough out at the plate." Regardless of the rhetoric, we expect left field to be closer to a timeshare between Davis and Parra.

Khris Davis (calf) is not in the Brewers starting lineup on Saturday.

He left Friday's game against the Cardinals with tightness in his left calf. Gerardo Parra will start in his place, and could begin to bite into Davis' regular playing time in left field.

Khris Davis was removed from Friday's game against the Cardinals due to left calf tightness.

It's probably not the best time for Davis to suffer any type of injury, as the team just acquired Gerardo Parra who is a major challenger for playing time in the outfield. He finished the night 0-for-4 and is now slashing .251/.302/.472 on the year.
Fri, Aug 1, 2014 11:24:00 PM

Khris Davis went 2-for-4 with a solo homer in Friday's win over the Nationals.

This was his first multi-hit game since June 27. The 26-year-old outfielder is now up to 16 home runs and 50 RBI on the year. He has put up much bigger numbers against southpaws than right-handers, but continues to provide enough pop to be valuable in mixed leagues.

Khris Davis (shoulder) has returned to the Brewers starting lineup on Saturday, hitting sixth against the Reds.

Davis missed a pair of games due to a strained left shoulder. After a slow start to the season, he has really picked up the pace offensively, slashing .309/.370/.603 with nine homers and 30 RBI in his last 37 games.
