Chris Davis to stay fresh in instructional league


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(9/15/2014) Orioles slugger Chris Davis is expected to report to the organization's spring training complex in Sarasota, Fla., to play in some instructional league games while serving his 25-game suspension, according to the Baltimore Sun.

Davis tested positive for amphetamines and began serving his suspension Sept. 12. Instructional league games begin Monday and end Oct. 7. Davis is eligible to return Oct. 14 -- or Game 4 of the ALCS, provided the Orioles advance that far.


Report: Chris Davis suspended for use of amphetamines


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(9/12/2014) Orioles struggling slugger Chris Davis has been suspended for 25 games for testing positive for amphetamines, though the league has not made it official, per the Baltimore Sun.

The loss of Davis could prove critical to the Orioles in the postseason, who have all but locked up the American League East title. The team has already lost third baseman Manny Machado for the season to a knee injury.

Davis, however, has not lived up to the expectations forged in 2013, when he led the majors with 53 home runs. He owns a stat line of .196/.300/.404 with 26 home runs and 72 RBI. He does have five homers in his last 17 games.


Chris Davis knocks 25th home run Wednesday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(9/4/2014) Orioles first baseman Chris Davis went 1 for 4 with a two-run home run in his team's 6-0 win over the Reds Wednesday.

Davis has endured a rough season at the plate, but he's picked things up offensively in his last 10 games, going 8 for 30 with eight walks, four home runs and 11 RBI. He still owns a .194/.300/.408 line with 25 home runs and 71 RBI in 422 at-bats.


Chris Davis drives in four in win


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(8/30/2014) Orioles first baseman Chris Davis has found his power stroke recently, as he slugged his third home run in five games in a 9-1 win over the Twins Friday.

Weber broke the game open with his fourth inning home run, a grand slam that put the Orioles up fro good. He finished the game 1 for 3 with a walk, two runs scored and four driven in.

Davis' batting average continues to tumble, as he has just three hits over his last five games, but all have gone over the fence, helping his cause. He now has 24 home runs and 67 RBI in 407 at-bats on the season. 


Chris Davis blasts 22nd home run


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(8/25/2014) Orioles first baseman Chris Davis belted his 22nd home run Monday against the Rays.

Davis struck in the fifth inning. He worked a three-pitch at-bat against Kirby Yates. On the final pitch, Davis clubbed a 91 mph fastball out to right center for a solo shot. He finished 1 for 3, with one run scored and one RBI.

by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(8/25/2014) The Orioles dropped slumping infielder Chris Davis down to seventh in the batting order Monday against the Rays, MASN Sports reports. Davis saw his batting average drop to .189 on the season after being held without a hit over his last seven at-bats. Since June 16, he has slashed .151/.240/.332 over 199 at-bats. 

Chris Davis makes fifth appearance at third base


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(8/13/2014) Chris Davis drew his third start of the season at third base Wednesday against the Yankees. It's the fifth time this season he's made an appearance at third base for the Orioles in 2014.

Davis also drew his first career start batting second. He did come off the bench Monday to bat second after Manny Machado left the game with a knee injury. Davis went 2 for 3 with a two-run homer.


Chris Davis shines as injury replacement


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(8/12/2014) Orioles infielder Chris Davis made a  big impact as an injury replacement Monday, in an 11-5 win over the Yankees.

Davis entered the game at third base after a right knee injury forced Manny Machado out, and finished off the game by going 2 for 3. He drove in two runs with a home run in the fifth inning, and also scored twice in the win.

Davis has struggled all season long, hitting just .197/.302/.406 with 21 home runs and 57 RBI in 100 games. 


Chris Davis benched against lefty Monday


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(8/11/2014) A matchup against left-hander Chris Capuano and the re-emergence of a slump has Orioles first baseman Chris Davis sitting Monday night against the Yankees.

Davis is hitless in his last nine at-bats and is batting just .195 against southpaws this season, though that is two points higher than his average overall.


Chris Davis maintains power surge with Friday blast


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(8/9/2014) The power surge from first baseman Chris Davis that the Orioles have been waiting for all season continued Friday night. He went deep for the third time in four games in a rout of St. Louis.

Davis blasted off in the sixth inning and scored twice. He has hit safely in five straight games with four RBI and five runs.

by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(8/6/2014) Orioles first baseman Chris Davis went 1 for 3 with a solo home run in his team's 5-1 loss to the Blue Jays Wednesday.

Davis has homered in back-to-back games, the first time he has accomplished that feat in nearly a full calendar year (Aug. 12-13, 2013). He is still seeing his batting average flounder around the Mendoza line, as the first baseman has managed only two multihit performances since June 11. Davis owns a .197/.307/.397 line with 19 home runs and 54 RBI in 335 at-bats.


Chris Davis ends drought with homer


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(8/6/2014) Orioles first baseman Chris Davis snapped out of a slump Tuesday, in a 9-3 win over the Blue Jays.

Davis had just one hit, but he made it count as he slugged his 18th home run of the season, ending a seven-game drought. He also reached base twice for the second straight game, going 1 for 3 with two RBI and one walk in the win.

Davis has struggled all season long, hitting .196, and has just two hits over the last eight games. 


Chris Davis out Saturday, but health not a concern


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(8/2/2014) Orioles first baseman Chris Davis was not in the lineup Saturday against the Mariners and still has a lingering cough from his bout with the flu, but manager Buck Showalter told MASNSports.com there is nothing to worry about with Davis' health at this point.

Davis has been in a slump after striking out 36 and 38 times in June and July respectively, and the team wanted to give him a day off against a tough left-hander Saturday. He should be back in the lineup for Sunday's game. 


Chris Davis back in action Friday


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(8/1/2014) Orioles struggling first baseman Chris Davis has returned from an illness to land a spot in the Friday lineup against Seattle.

by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(7/31/2014) An illness that has prevented disappointing Orioles first baseman Chris Davis from playing since Sunday has him out again Thursday against the Angels.

by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(7/30/2014) Orioles first baseman Chris Davis is out of the lineup for the second game in a row Wednesday against the Angels, as he continues to deal with an illness. He remains day to day as a result of this issue. 

Illness has Chris Davis sidelined Tuesday


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(7/29/2014) Orioles first baseman Chris Davis is not out of the Tuesday lineup due to a slump, but rather because of an illness that has kept him from joining his team, per Comcast Sportsnet.

Struggling Chris Davis out of Tuesday lineup


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(7/29/2014) A miserable slump has Orioles first baseman Chris Davis sitting Tuesday against the Angels. Steve Pearce is set to play first base.

Davis has just four hits in his last 28 at-bats and owns a .199/.309/.391 stat line on the season. He has just two multi-hit games since June 11 and 123 strikeouts in 317 at-bats this year.


Chris Davis enters break with league-worst .199 average


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(7/16/2014) Orioles first baseman Chris Davis hit .199/.309/.391 with 15 home runs and 48 RBI in 281 at-bats in the first half, making him the only player to qualify for the batting title while hitting below .200 at the break.

Davis easily outpaced the rest of the league with 53 home runs last season while also collecting a league-leading 138 RBI and posting a .286/.370/.634 line. His 2014 has swung completely in the other direction, though he has managed to provide some pop after hitting just two home runs through the end of April. Unfortunately, the return of his power has also brought about a dip in batting average, with Davis entering the break with a .146 mark in July.


Chris Davis can salvage his season


by Al Melchior | Data Analyst
(7/15/2014) As the halfway point of the season rolled around, Chris Davis' Fantasy owners had to figure things could only get better. They had already endured his disabled list stint and some disappointing power numbers, and then in late June, Davis revealed that he was not completely over the oblique strain that put him on the DL earlier in the year.

Then things got worse. From June 28 forward, Davis went 6 for 52 (.115) with two home runs, no other extra-base hits and 25 strikeouts. It's a wonder that he is still universally owned in CBSSports.com leagues, though understandably, he's been benched in 21 percent of our leagues. Even the Orioles have taken to benching him a few times in recent weeks.

There is a very good chance that Davis' patient owners will be rewarded. As I wrote in a recent blog post, Davis remains among the majors' leaders in average flyball distance, ranking ninth at 305.8 feet, according to Baseball Heat Maps. Part of the problem is that Davis is hitting fewer flies than in recent years, as his current 35.8 percent flyball rate is his lowest of his career, but it's only a little out of line with the 38.1 percent rate he posted two seasons ago, when he hit 33 home runs in 139 games. Meanwhile, the average length of his flyballs suggests that his current 18.8 percent home run-to-flyball ratio (as compared to marks above 24 percent in each of the last two years) is due to rise.

Davis' biggest problem of late is his soaring strikeout rate, but while he is not likely to be even a decent contact hitter, he should improve enough to have a shot at 15-plus home runs going forward. He has also been unlucky enough to hit .141 on ground balls, so those homers could come with a .260-plus batting average, provided he cuts back on his strikeouts.

Right now it's frustrating to be a Davis owner, and you may need to bench him coming out of the break, but by all means, resist the temptation to trade him. He appears due for much better times ahead.


Chris Davis goes deep


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(7/14/2014) Orioles first baseman Chris Davis ripped a two-run homer in Sunday's 3-1 win over the Yankees, giving him 15 homers and 48 RBI at the All-Star break. Davis went 1 for 2 with a walk in the rain-shortened game and has six RBI over his last six games.

He's hitting .199/.309/.391 in 281 at-bats.


Chris Davis smacks 14th home run Monday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(7/7/2014) Orioles first baseman Chris Davis went 1 for 5 with a two-run home run in his team's 8-2, 11-inning win over the Red Sox.

Davis was just 4 for 40 since hitting his last home run on June 23, and he was 0 for 4 Monday before slugging his two-run shot in the 11th inning. It's been a disappointing season for Davis, who continues to hover around the Mendoza line by hitting .201/.317/.394 with 14 home runs and 44 RBI in 264 at-bats.


Chris Davis expected back in lineup Monday


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(7/6/2014) Struggling Orioles first baseman Chris Davis, who went 0 for 8 with six strikeouts in Saturday's doubleheader, was not in Sunday's lineup against the Red Sox. But manager Buck Showalter said he expects Davis to be in Monday's lineup against the Nationals.

Davis is hitting .201 with 13 homers and 42 RBI in 259 at-bats.


Chris Davis starts at third base Monday


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(6/30/2014) With Manny Machado serving a five-game suspension, Orioles manager Buck Showalter got creative with his lineup Monday against the Rangers by moving first baseman Chris Davis across the diamond to third base. 

Davis has appeared in a game at third base this season for Baltimore, but it's his first start at the hot corner since making 25 starts in 2011. Davis has appeared in 71 games (66 starts) at third base in his major-league career.


Manager: Chris Davis created 'false expectations' last year


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(6/27/2014) Buck Showalter has defended Orioles outfielder Chris Davis, who has followed up his amazing 2013 with a comparative dud.

Davis batted .286 and led the majors with 53 home runs a year ago. His slugging percentage of .436 this season is more than 200 points off of what he achieved last year. He has 13 home runs with 40 RBI with 80 strikeouts in 225 at-bats.

"The microscope is on him with (catcher Matt Wieters) out," Showalter told MLB Network Radio. "With the level he spoiled us with last year it creates false expectations."

Davis hasn't had a multi-hit game since June 11. He is 7 of 41 since then.
