If you were looking for Khris Davis to establish a consistent pattern of production in 2015, you will be heading into 2016 more frustrated with him than ever. Even before Davis missed more than a month in the middle of the season due to surgery on his torn meniscus, he had already endured an extended slump and a blistering hot streak. He came back from the surgery ice cold, but over the final two months of the season, Davis couldn't be stopped. Though he blasted 20 home runs over a 54-game span, strikeouts and popups lingered as issues that could thwart him during future cold streaks. Despite his power upside, Davis is no more than a late-round option in standard mixed leagues.
Brewers outfielder Khris Davis went 2 for 4 with a game-winning home run and a stolen base in a 4-3 win over the Cardinals on Friday. The young outfielder was a disappointment for the first couple of months, but he's been great since. Since May 25, Davis has recorded 20 home runs and 46 RBI in 71 games played. One gripe with Davis is that he has only seven extra-base hits in that span aside from homers and it's impossible to sustain that. His putrid 70 percent contact rate would back-up that notion and he needs to become an overall better hitter if he wants to sustain the power numbers.
Brewers outfielder Khris Davis (ankle) is back in the lineup Monday against the Cubs.

Davis has found his power stroke over his past 30 games, driving in 20 runs, scoring another 19 and seeing 10 of his 25 hits during that span leave the yard. He has hit only .248 with a .316 OBP during that time, but a power-starved team could decide to look past those less-than-savory numbers.
