Khris Davis finished Saturday's game at Seattle with a two-run home run and three strikeouts over five at-bats.
Davis has hit safely in four consecutive outings, and he has posted four homers and seven RBI over his past three contests. Of course, he has also struck out at least once in six straight, and 11 of his 12 games in the month of April. It's no surprise, as this is what you get from Davis. He produces plenty of power, usually in bunches, and heaps of strikeouts. Apr 15 - 3:08 AM

Khris Davis hit his third and fourth homers Friday in a losing cause against the Mariners.

Davis has seven hits, including three homers, in his last three games, raising his average from .179 to .264.
Apr 14 - 1:32 AM

Khris Davis ended up going 3-for-6 with a double, two runs scored and two RBI in Wednesday's 16-6 road rout of the Dodgers.

Davis rolled into Tuesday's game in a 3-for-29 slide, but he has two hits then and three more on Hump Day. "For a guy like him, that's all it takes, get a couple of hits and then we've seen him be as productive as any hitter in the American League," manager Bob Melvin said. Fantasy owners shouldn't panic, as Davis is due to make up for lost time and start piling up homers and RBI in bunches after a slow start.
Apr 12 - 2:48 AM

Khris Davis collected a pair of singles with two strikeouts over four at-bats in Tuesday's 4-0 loss against the Dodgers.

Davis started out with four hits over his first 10 at-bats, but he had been ice cold since flipping the calendar from March to April. Davis entered the game 3-for-29 across the past eight outings before his first multi-hit game since March 31. Davis has collected 85 homers over his past two seasons, but he hasn't had a clout in 11 games dating back to Opening Day. Fantasy owners shouldn't push the panic button yet. The power will come, and he'll likely start racking up homers in bunches.
Apr 11 - 1:10 AM

Khris Davis doubled twice and scored a run during a loss to the Angels on Saturday.

He went 2-for-3 with a walk on the day, with both extra-base hits coming off starter Matt Shoemaker. The slugger is trying to hit 40-plus homers and drive in 100-plus runs for the third year in a row.
Mar 31 - 8:59 PM

Khris Davis went 2-for-5 with a three-run home run, finishing with four RBI, in Thursday's Opening Day win over the Angels.

Davis got the A's on the board in the fifth inning with a three-run blast off Angels starter Garrett Richards. His RBI single in the seventh inning that tied the game was equally as important, setting up the walk-off win in the 11th inning. Davis has hit more than 40 homers in back to back years and is currently on pace to hit 162, which would be a major league record.
Mar 29 - 11:29 PM

Athletics' manager Bob Melvin said Tuesday that Khris Davis (illness) will return to Cactus League action on Wednesday.

The slugger was scratched from Tuesday's lineup due to illness, but he's apparently much improved already. Davis has slugged there home runs and plated 10 runs through his first 14 Cactus League contests.
Mar 20 - 7:16 PM

Khris Davis was scratched from the A's Cactus League lineup Tuesday due to an illness.

He should be fine after a couple days of rest. Davis has tallied three home runs and 10 RBI through 14 games this spring in Cactus League action.
Mar 20 - 3:34 PM

Khris Davis crushed a two-run homer in Friday’s 2-0 victory over the Brewers in Cactus League play.

Davis is hitting just .160 this spring, but he’s contributed with three homers and 10 RBI. He’s a risk on the batting average front — granted, he’s at least been consistent in that area by hitting exactly .247 in three straight years — but he’s second in the majors with 85 homers since the start of 2016. Only Giancarlo Stanton (86 home runs) has slugged more in that timespan.
Mar 9 - 9:01 PM

Khris Davis mashed a grand slam Thursday against the Rangers.

The A's couldn't get anything else going offensively in this one, but Davis punished a Paulo Espino offering in the fifth inning over the wall with two outs. The slugger has posted two straight 40-homer seasons and will move into the designated hitter spot for Oakland in 2018.
Mar 1 - 6:24 PM

Khris Davis clubbed his first homer of the spring Wednesday in the Athletics’ Cactus League loss to the Cubs.

Davis got his homer out of the way early, beating Kyle Hendricks for a two-run bomb in the first inning. He grounded out and struck out in his next two at-bats before eventually ceding left-field responsibilities to Anthony Garcia. Davis has quietly emerged as one of the league’s best power hitters, topping 40 homers and 100 RBI in each of his last two seasons. He’s a steal at his current sixth-round ADP.
Feb 28 - 8:21 PM

Athletics and OF Khris Davis avoided arbitration by agreeing to a one-year, $10.5 million contract.

Davis is coming off a 2017 season in which he slugged 43 homers with 110 RBI and posted an .864 OPS. Assuming he doesn't work out a long-term deal with the Athletics -- or maybe a team trades for his services -- he'll be eligible for arbitration again in 2019 before hitting the open market in 2020.
Jan 10 - 5:52 PM

Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic writes that it's "highly unlikely" that the Athletics will trade slugger Khris Davis.

Jon Morosi of MLB Network wrote late last week that he expects teams to inquire on Davis during the Winter Meetings, but Rosenthal notes that the A's just cleared the DH spot by trading Ryon Healy to the Mariners. Meanwhile, Davis is projected to make just north of $10 million via arbitration, which isn't going to break the bank for Oakland. The A's would be wise to at least listen, but they aren't desperate to move him.

Jon Morosi of MLB Network believes that teams will inquire about Khris Davis during the winter meetings.

Morosi also says he doesn't expect Davis to be made available, but that won't stop teams from inquiring, especially when you consider that Oakland is still likely a couple seasons away from contention. As Morosi points out, only Giancarlo Stanton has hit more homers the last two years than Davis, and right-handed power is something that is never going to go out of style. The teams who can't afford a J.D. Martinez or Stanton contract would do well to pursue the 29-year-old outfielder.

Khris Davis went 2-for-4 with a solo homer to finish out the regular season Sunday against the Rangers.

Davis went deep off Yohander Mendez in the eighth inning to set a new career-high with 43 homers. Only Giancarlo Stanton and Aaron Judge hit homers in the majors this season. The 29-year-old wraps up the year with a .247/.336/.528 batting line to go along with a career-high 110 RBI. The strikeouts are going to cap the batting average upside, but he’s one of the most bankable sluggers in the game right now.
