by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(5/31/2014) Need a sleeper hitter for Fantasy Week 10 (June 2-8)? Wilson Ramos, Lucas Duda, Martin Prado, Lonnie Chisenhall, J.J. Hardy and Khris Davis are just a few of the possibilities you'll find in my Start and Sit Hitters column.

Find out what makes them so special here.


OK, Khris Davis ... you win


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(5/29/2014) Just Wednesday, I wrote I was embarrassed to have bought into Brewers outfielder Khris Davis as a sleeper this spring. One more home run (and perhaps more notably, one more walk) later, I'm embarrassed to have admitted I was embarrassed.

In short, my life is one never-ending embarrassment.

But since I'm already embarrassed, I might as well discard whatever dignity remains by doing an about-face. Sort of.

I still think Wednesday's comparison to Cody Ross of 2012 is both realistic and appropriate, but by changing the tone of the comparison, by putting a more positive spin on it, I can weasel my way back into the pro-Davis camp and enjoy all the accolades I was so quick to forfeit.

In all sincerity, as I mentioned on Thursday's Fantasy Baseball Today, I'm never one to go all-in or all-out for a player on the bubble. A firm stance makes for a more interesting take than a shoulder shrug and a "who knows?" but the best approach to an inconsequential roster spot is an open mind. Whenever a player with genuine upside gets hot, he deserves a look regardless of what he may have done to this point.

More than half of Davis' walks this season have come in his last nine games. That's enough to open my mind.


Khris Davis smashes another home run vs. Orioles


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(5/28/2014) Brewers outfielder Khris Davis went 2 for 3 with a walk and a three-run home run in his team's 8-3 win over the Orioles Wednesday.

Davis has caught fire during this series, going 7 for 11 with three walks, three home runs and five RBI as well as five runs scored. After a seven-game hitting streak, Davis has hit .251/.292/.486 with nine home runs and 21 RBI in 183 at-bats.


Still not thrilled with Khris Davis


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(5/28/2014) Khris Davis was one of my sleeper picks coming into the year, which gave me extra incentive to ride it out with him even when he had nothing to offer.

So when I finally turned the page on him six weeks in, it wasn't a decision I made lightly. Likewise, one week of good production isn't enough to win me back.

He's hot right now. That much is certain. His four home runs in his last eight games give him eight for the season, putting him on about a 25-homer pace. And you know, if he hits 25 this year, it wouldn't surprise me. I don't question the power so much as everything else. Even with this latest surge, he's still on pace for 147 strikeouts to only 21 walks -- a ratio so bad that, frankly, I'm embarrassed I bought into him like I did. It's one thing when a toolsy player like Carlos Gomez has a ratio like that. The scouting reports at least give you some hope he can succeed in spite of it. But when a non-prospect like Davis -- who only reached the majors because of his production in the minors, ratios and all -- so fundamentally changes when he reaches this level, you can't help but wonder if he was simply beating up on lesser competition all this time.

My amended hope for Davis is something like Cody Ross offered for the Red Sox in 2012, meaning a middling batting average with 20-plus homers and a poor on-base percentage. Ross was a top-60 outfielder that year -- a suitable No. 5 in mixed leagues -- but he wasn't a game changer for anyone.


Khris Davis as valuable as George Springer?


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(5/28/2014) One of the hottest hitters in the majors right now is Astros rookie outfielder George Springer, who hit his sixth home run in his last six games Wednesday afternoon against the Royals. Though, overshadowed in Springer's hot streak has been the play of Brewers outfielder Khris Davis, who is batting .387 (12 for 31) with four doubles, four home runs and six RBI in his last eight games.

I mention the two players in the same breath because on second glance they seem to be pretty close in comparison. Springer is looked at in a different light because he was a high draft pick and a highly touted prospect, but both players are good power hitters that strike out a lot. 

I'm only bringing up this point is because if we hold Springer in such high regard, then maybe it's time to start giving Davis the same credit. Look at their minor-league slash lines. Davis had a .288/.392/.506/.898 line over 415 games, while Springer had a .302/.397/.562/.959 line in 284 games. 

Perhaps the major differences between Davis and Springer is that Springer is showcasing the ability to hit for more home runs and Davis doesn't draw as many walks. Though, Davis has been no slouch with 19 home runs and a .522 slugging percentage in his first 103 MLB games.

I've definitely overlooked Davis in the past, but after looking at the comparsions to Springer, my opinion on Davis' Fantasy value is changing. I'd still rather own Springer in Fantasy, but I'll no longer overlook what Davis can bring to the table.


Khris Davis reaches base five times in win over O's


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(5/26/2014) Brewers outfielder Khris Davis continued to swing a hot bat on Monday, reaching base in all five of his plate appearance in his team's 7-6 defeat to the Orioles in extras.

Davis doubled in the second, reached on infield single in the eighth and signed again in the 10th. He took starter Chris Tillman deep in the sixth inning for a solo home run. He finished 4 for 4 with a walk, two runs scored and an RBI. He is hitting .244 with seven homers and 17 RBI in 176 at-bats.

Khris Davis goes deep in losing effort


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(5/20/2014) Brewers outfielder Khris Davis made his presence felt at the plate, smacking his fifth home run of the season in a 9-3 loss to the Braves in Atlanta.

Davis took starter Mike Minor deep for a two-run home run in the fifth inning. He added a single and finished 2 for 4 with one run scored and two RBI. He is hitting .222 with five homers and 14 RBI in 153 at-bats.

OK to move on from Khris Davis


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(5/14/2014) As I mentioned in a recent post to the Fantasy Baseball Today blog, I'm over Khris Davis. Coming into the year, I thought he could be for Fantasy owners what Marlon Byrd was last year, hitting about 25 home runs with a respectable batting average despite suspect plate discipline. I even touted him as a sleeper until it became clear no one was sleeping on him, drafting him in the same range as Michael Cuddyer and Nelson Cruz.

Turns out the suspect plate discipline has had the greatest say in his numbers so far. As I mentioned in the blog, he's swinging at everything and missing most of it, his 39-to-2 strikeout-to-walk ratio making him a sitting duck for any pitcher with a scouting report. And while he could still conceivably come around, I don't have nearly as much confidence in him as I do the players with actual track records, like Allen Craig and Jason Heyward.

Davis was great last August, which was enough to make him a sleeper this spring. But it wasn't enough to stick with him during these struggles if you see something more appealing on the waiver wire.


Caleb Gindle in, Khris Davis out of Wednesday lineup


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(5/7/2014) Brewers outfielder Caleb Gindl will get another chance to heat up Wednesday against Arizona. He is 1 for 14 on the season, but has been placed in the lineup as Khris Davis is set to sit.

by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Despite his late-inning heroics, Davis struck out four times Monday, giving him a whopping seven strikeouts over his last two games and a 31:1 K:BB ratio this season. He has hit .247/.271/.430 with three home runs and eight RBI in 93 at-bats.

Davis got off to a slow start, but is hitting .321 with three home runs and four RBI over the last six games.

Khris Davis scratched Monday with stomach flu


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Davis hit his first home run of the season in Sunday's 14-inning win, but he's been bitten by the stomach bug that has been going around clubhouses this spring. He has hit .258/.290/.379 with an ugly 20:1 K:BB ratio in 66 at-bats.
