Khris Davis went 2-for-4 with two RBI, scored two runs and blasted his 42nd homer of the season on Saturday in a win over the Mariners.

He took Nick Vincent yard in the seventh inning to provide an insurance run the Athletics would need as they eliminated the Mariners from the playoff race. 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.
Oct 2 - 1:43 AM

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

Davis hadn't played since Monday as he was battling a stomach bug. The 28-year-old outfielder is having a nice season in the middle of the A's lineup, slashing .250/.307/.526 with 40 home runs and 99 RBI.

Khris Davis (illness) is out again Wednesday.

Davis was scratched from the Athletics' starting lineup on Tuesday night after showing up to the ballpark with a stomach bug and he's apparently still fighting through it. Jake Smolinski is starting in left field and batting ninth Wednesday afternoon against the Astros.

Khris Davis was scratched from the Athletics' lineup on Tuesday due to an illness.

Davis went 0-for-4 with a strikeout in Monday's series opener against the Astros and woke up Tuesday with a stomach bug. Danny Valencia is now starting in right field, with Jake Smolinski drawing the nod in left.
Sep 20 - 6:58 PM

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.
Sep 18 - 6:38 PM

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.
Sep 16 - 11:42 PM

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.
Sep 13 - 10:24 PM

Khris Davis slugged his 34th home run of the year Sunday in the Athletics' 7-4 victory at St. Louis.

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.
Aug 28 - 5:07 PM

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.
Aug 27 - 10:27 PM

Khris Davis went 2-for-4 with a three-run home run and three runs scored in Tuesday's 9-1 win over the Indians.

Davis opened the scoring in style by swatting a three-run home run off Danny Salazar in the first inning. He also singled and walked in the contest. For the season, the 28-year-old slugger is slashing .257/.300/.530 with 33 homers and 82 RBI over 440 at-bats. He has homered four times in his last 10 games.
Aug 24 - 2:05 AM

Khris Davis struck out all four times he was up in Monday's loss to the Indians.

Davis now has a career high in strikeouts (125) to go along with his highs in homers (32) and RBI (79) this season. He has just 20 walks and 18 doubles in 469 plate appearances, so he's not doing much when he isn't homering. Still, he's homering enough to make up for it.
Aug 23 - 12:57 AM

Khris Davis slugged his 32nd home run of the season on Sunday against the White Sox.

It was a two-run shot in the top of the fourth inning off White Sox starter Jose Quintana and gave the A's their only runs of the game. Davis is batting just .257 with a .299 on-base percentage, but the 28-year-old slugger is on pace for 42 home runs and 103 RBI.
Aug 21 - 6:19 PM

Khris Davis went 3-for-4 with a two-run homer and four runs scored in Friday’s win over the White Sox.

Davis also singled and doubled in the victory. He’s now up to 31 homers on the year. Only Edwin Encarnacion and Mark Trumbo have hit more in MLB.
Aug 19 - 11:05 PM

Khris Davis clubbed his 30th home run on Sunday, but it wasn't enough to lead the Athletics to victory over the Mariners.

Davis' two-run shot in the sixth inning pulled the A's to within four runs at 7-3. He finished the afternoon 2-for-4 and is now slashing .254/.294/.516 with the aforementioned 30 bombs and 75 RBI. While the on-base percentage isn't optimal, he's one of the top sources of right-handed power in all of baseball.
