Brewers' Khris Davis crushes grand slam to continue torrid spring
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
|(3/27/15) Brewers outfielder Khris Davis made a statement with his first home run of the spring Thursday against the Mariners, connecting for a grand slam off Roenis Elias in the first inning.
Although it took Davis 14 games to connect for his first spring home run, it's not like he is having a poor spring at the plate. Davis is batting .389 (14 for 36) with six doubles, seven runs and 12 RBI.
“He’s driving the ball; he’s having great at-bats,” manager Ron Roenicke said, per the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel. “I love what he’s doing right now. I couldn’t care less about home runs. If he continues this through the season, he’s going to have some big numbers.”
Davis has been working with hitting coach Darnell Coles this spring on making adjustments at the plate.
“I think last year I tended to get away from pulling my hands in but I can’t really explain it,” Davis said. (The change) is something that makes me more comfortable. It’s helping me be more consistent.
“I feel pretty lucky right now with a lot of broken-bat base hits and flashes of some hard-hit balls. I feel like I’m still 20 or 30 ABs from being where I’m ready for the season. I still want to do some things up there. Right now, I’m in the right place at the right time (to get ready for the season).”
Brewers' Khris Davis to work on being a patient hitter in 2015
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
|(2/27/15) Brewers outfielder Khris Davis realizes he didn't show patience at the plate last year in his first full major-league season, the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.
"I built a reputation in the organization of being a patient hitter," Davis said. "I felt like I wasn't a patient hitter at all last year. I was a little eager, wanting to please too much, too early. I found out I'm human."
Davis drew just 32 walks in 549 plate appearances while posting a .299 OBP in 2014, a number far away from his career .392 OBP in the minors.
"He was different last year," manager Ron Roenicke said. "Everybody goes through different phases. Guys change. (His walk total) was too low. He's a guy I think should be fairly patient. He sees pitches well. When he starts getting anxious, he becomes more aggressive and chases more. He realizes it, which is the first step. If you don't realize it and don't listen to other people when they tell you that, then you have issues. You have to have good self-awareness to be a good player. Sometimes these players don't have good self-awareness. But if they had better self-awareness they'd be a better player."
Davis is determined to fulfill the potential that caused the organization to move Ryan Braun to right field before the 2014 season and plug Davis into the regular left-field role.
"I can't thank them enough for having patience with me," Davis said. "I'm going to work it out. When you get here, you want to stay. That's the toughest part at first. I don't think this league has seen the best of me yet. I'm ready to pull that out and prove it day by day. I learned so many lessons there are too many to name."
Davis hit .244/.299/.457 with 22 home runs and 69 RBI in 501 at-bats.
Khris Davis returns to lineup Saturday
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
|(9/13/14) Brewers outfielder Khris Davis is back in the starting lineup for Saturday's game against the Reds.
Davis hasn't played since Wednesday while recovering from a forearm injury. He returns to a .251/.308/.475 line with 22 home runs and 68 RBI in 474 at-bats.
Khris Davis on bench again for Friday night game
|by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com|
|(9/12/14) A forearm injury continues to keep Brewers left fielder Khris Davis out of the lineup. He is a no-go for the Friday night game against Cincinnati. His return had been expected.
Davis last played Wednesday. He is batting just .200 in his last seven games and has not achieved a multi-hit game since Sept. 3.
|2014 summary: The Brewers thought they had unearthed their own Allen Craig when Khris Davis delivered middle-of-the-order numbers down the stretch in 2013. But as so often happens for so-so prospects who take the league by storm, everyday duty exposed him in 2014. He wasn't all bad, hitting 22 home runs, but he struggled to get on base consistently and faded down the stretch, hitting just .229 after the All-Star break.|
Playing time status: After remaking their outfield last offseason to free up left field for Davis, even the Brewers grew weary of his up-and-down production, having him split time with defensive whiz Gerardo Parra down the stretch. The distribution of at-bats between the two could remain a source of contention in 2015, especially since Parra bats left-handed and Davis right-handed.
2015 outlook: If Davis was guaranteed an everyday job in 2015, he'd be a worthy third or fourth outfielder in Fantasy for his power potential alone, but clearly, no one can promise that. And as a part-timer, his shortcomings make him hardly worth the trouble. Particularly in five-outfielder leagues, he's a worth a late-round flier just for the possibility he had an off year, but considering he's already 27, he may not have much upside from here.
