Khris Davis went 2-for-4 with a solo homer and a triple in Wednesday's 9-4 loss to the Tigers.
Davis showed massive power with the Brewers to close the 2015 season, which inspired the Athletics to trade for him this past offseason. One of the biggest concerns has been whether he'll hit for power in Oakland. Despite his big night on the road in Detroit on Wednesday, he's only hitting .154/.214/.192 at O.co Coliseum. It's early, yes, but it has certainly done little to alleviate the concerns that surrounded him coming into the year. Overall, Davis now has a .233 batting average to go with three homers and a 30.8 percent strikeout rate. Apr 28 - 12:21 AM

Date:

Khris Davis hit his first home run of the season in Thursday's win over the Yankees.

It was a big one, too, as his seventh inning blast gave the A's a lead they wouldn't relinquish. It's been tough sledding for the masher through the season's first few weeks, as he's hit just .180/.226/.260 with 21 strikeouts in 50 at-bats. His new digs surely haven't helped his production, but swinging and missing 29 percent of the time isn't exactly a recipe for success, either.
Apr 22 - 12:02 AM

Khris Davis went 2-for-4 with a two-run single in Wednesday's win over the Yankees.

Davis has been a strikeout machine in the early going and he did add a pair of those to the pileup on Wednesday (he has now struck out 20 times in 46 at-bats), but he also came through with a big insurance single in the eighth inning. In that frame, the 28-year-old outfielder burned Yankees reliever Branden Pinder to boost the Athletic lead to 5-1. That would stand as the final score. While Davis has yet to homer in 2016, he is coming off back-to-back 20-dinger campaigns and figures to lock into his power groove in due time.
Apr 20 - 10:27 PM

Khris Davis is not in the Athletics' lineup on Sunday.

It appears to be a simple day of rest. Davis is off to a rough start this season, sporting a .162/.225/.189 batting line with no homers in his first 40 plate appearances. Coco Crisp is in left field Sunday, while Billy Burns is handling center.
Apr 17 - 12:59 PM

Khris Davis is not in the A's lineup Wednesday versus Angels right-hander Matt Shoemaker.

Coco Crisp and Billy Burns will both play. Davis is batting just .167/.219/.200 with 14 strikeouts over his first 32 plate appearances with the Athletics.
Apr 13 - 12:40 PM

Khris Davis hit a solo home run in Saturday's 4-1, Cactus League win over the Giants.

Davis took Giants starter Matt Cain deep for the solo shot, his second homer of spring. He also walked twice in the contest, reaching in all three of his plate appearances. He finishes Cactus League play batting .314 with 10 RBI in his first camp with the A's. It's worth noting that the A's fielded a fairly representative lineup Saturday and Davis batted seventh, a spot that could limit his fantasy upside. He'll still be good for those dingers, though.
Apr 2 - 6:37 PM

Khris Davis went 3-for-3 with a triple and an RBI double on Monday versus the Indians.

Both extra-base hits came off of Danny Salazar, so they weren't cheapies. The three-hit day pushed Davis' average this spring to .304, and he has one homer and nine RBI. We'd like if he had a different home park, but Davis should provide plenty of power this season.
Mar 28 - 6:44 PM

Khris Davis hit a bases-clearing double as the split-squad Athletics beat the Rockies 9-4 on Friday.

It was part of a six-run second inning for the Athletics. Davis was acquired from the Brewers last month and his fantasy stock takes a bit of a hit with the move to Oakland, but his power should still have him on the radar in the late rounds of mixed league drafts. The 28-year-old had 27 home runs and an .828 OPS in 121 games last season.
Mar 4 - 7:19 PM

Athletics general manager David Forst confirmed Friday that Khris Davis will be the club's everyday left fielder in 2016.

That means that Mark Canha and the oft-injured Coco Crisp are going to see their playing time reduced. Davis has gargantuan power that will play well in any park, though he could witness a small decline in his home run total moving away from Miller Park. The 28-year-old slashed .247/.323/.505 with 27 homers and 66 RBI in 121 games for the Brewers in 2015.
Feb 12 - 7:31 PM

Athletics acquired OF Khris Davis from the Brewers for C Jacob Nottingham and RHP Bubba Derby.

The Brewers have been looking to deal Davis for awhile now and appear to have received a decent return. Nottingham gives them a legitimate catching prospect whose path could soon be cleared if the club is also successful in dealing Jonathan Lucroy. Davis will provide plenty of power in the middle of the A's lineup, though his fantasy value may take a slight hit with the move away from Miller Park.
Feb 12 - 6:50 PM

Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle reports that the Athletics and Brewers are discussing a potential trade, with Khris Davis believed to be the target for the Athletics.

The Brewers have had Davis, perhaps their best trade chip, on the block for some time now and are expected to move him at some point before the trade deadline. The Brewers are in full rebuilding mode at this point and are likely seeking controllable young talent in return.
Feb 12 - 6:11 PM

Jon Morosi of FOX Sports believes that the Brewers will look to trade Khris Davis prior to July's non-waiver trade deadline.

With a wealth of outfield talent still available on the free agent market, they'll likely achieve their best return if they wait until the trade deadline to maximize their return on the power-hitting outfielder. New general manager David Stearns appears to be in full rebuild mode in Milwaukee, and the cost-controlled Davis may be the best trade chip that he has.

Khris Davis went 2-for-4 with a solo home run in Friday's loss to the Cubs.

Davis homered in the seventh inning to pull the Brew Crew to within 6-1, but it was not their offensive day and they would fail to score another run in the contest. With four homers in his last 10 games, the 27-year-old outfielder is hitting .249/.326/.509 with 27 homers and 66 RBI over 385 at-bats. If he can stay healthy in 2016, he could be in for a monster campaign--injuries have limited him to 118 games in 2015.

Khris Davis went 2-for-4 with a go-ahead homer in a 4-3 win over the Cardinals on Friday.

The game was tied 3-3 before Davis took Cardinals closer Trevor Rosenthal deep to lead off the top of the ninth inning. The 27-year-old continues to get it done in the power department. He has seven home runs this month and 24 for the year.
Sat, Sep 26, 2015 12:17:00 AM

Khris Davis homered in a losing effort Monday against the Cubs.

Davis homered a little too late for a comeback, as his solo shot in the eighth inning made it a 9-5 game. He finished 1-for-4 on the night. He's had a fantastic season, batting .244/.322/.496 with 23 home runs, 59 RBI, and 47 runs scored in 394 plate appearances.
