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.

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.

Khris Davis had just one hit across four at-bats in Tuesday's loss against the Mariners but it was good for a two-run homer.

Davis tied his career high of 42 homers set last season, and his 107 RBI after five better than his previous best also set in 2016. He has emerged as one of the most feared power hitters in the American League and he is doing it playing half of his games in a pitcher-friendly park.

Khris Davis launched his 41st home run of the season Sunday in the Athletics' 8-1 victory over the Rangers.

Davis contributed a two-run jack to the A's five-run fifth inning. He also drew a walk in the game, finishing 1-for-3 with one run scored and two RBI. The 29-year-old left fielder has registered 83 home runs and 207 RBI in two seasons with Oakland and is looking at a big payout this winter as a second-year arbitration-eligible player.

Khris Davis smacked a solo home run in the second inning of Saturday's game against the Rangers and that was the only offense in the 1-0 win.

Davis has back-to-back seasons with 40 or more home runs. He is the first player in franchise history to accomplish the feat since Hall of Famer Jimmie Foxx did it in 1934 when the team was located in Philadelphia, and the first to do it in Oakland.

Khris Davis went 2-for-5 with a pair of singles in his return to the starting lineup Monday versus the Tigers.

Davis left the team late last week due to be present for the birth of his son. The 29-year-old is one homer shy of reaching 40 for the second straight season.

Khris Davis has been excused from the A's for a couple of days to be present for the birth of his son.

Davis' girlfriend is about ready to give birth to the couple's first child back in the Bay Area. Renato Nunez will get the start in left field and bat seventh on Thursday afternoon at Fenway Park.

Khris Davis is getting the day off Thursday.

Renato Nunez will start in left field and bat seventh versus Red Sox left-hander Drew Pomeranz. This is a routine breather for Davis, who has tallied 39 home runs and 102 RBI in 140 games this season with the A's.
Thu, Sep 14, 2017 10:37:00 AM

Khris Davis is out of the A's starting lineup for the second half of Saturday's doubleheader against the Astros.

Mark Canha will start in left field and hit seventh versus Astros right-hander Brad Peacock. Davis went 2-for-6 with two RBI in the early game and is batting .243/.332/.526 with 39 home runs and 101 RBI in 137 total games this season.

Khris Davis went 2-for-3 with a solo home run in Wednesday's 3-1 win over the Angels.

Davis launched a solo home run to dead center field off Tyler Skaggs in the fourth inning. The long ball was his 39th of the season and snapped a tie with Aaron Judge to give him the American League lead. He has been swinging a hot stick of late, having mashed three taters in his last five games. He has also turned in multi-hit efforts in three consecutive contests. For the campaign as a whole, Davis is slashing .239/.329/.526 with the aforementioned 39 home runs, plus 98 RBI. The slugger is three homers shy of tying the career-best 42 that he styled last season.
Wed, Sep 6, 2017 07:22:00 PM

Khris Davis collected a single, a two-run home run and a walk in four at-bats in Tuesday's game against the Angels.

Davis has blasted 38 homers with 97 RBI across 499 at-bats, giving him 80 dingers with 199 RBI over the past two seasons. The most positive thing about Davis in 2017, however, has been his discerning eye at the plate. He had managed 42 walks across 555 at-bats in 2016, but he has already drawn 63 walks over 499 ABs in 2017.
Wed, Sep 6, 2017 04:54:00 AM

Khris Davis hit a pair of solo homers Friday, upping his season total to 36.

Davis is on pace for 46 homers, which would overtake last year's career high of 42. He did set one new career high today by striking out for the 167th time. However, he does have 58 walks to go along with his .236 average. Last year, he walked just 42 times in 150 games.

Khris Davis ripped a solo homer in Tuesday's win over the Orioles.

Davis was hitless in his first four plate appearances but finally joined in on the Athletics' 13-hit, six-run fun with a dinger off of Darren O'Day. The slugger entered the night hitless in his previous four contests.
