Davis is not in the lineup for Sunday's matchup against the Mariners. Over the last seven games, Davis has posted a disappointing .167 batting average. However, his power has remained, as he's hit two home runs in that time, giving him 42 for the year. Davis will be replaced by Jake Smolinski in left field for Sunday's outing.
Davis went 1-for-4 with a double in Saturday's 5-0 loss to the Rangers. The slugger provided the only extra-base hit on the day for the A's, as they were stymied by Yu Darvish and a trio of relievers. The two-bagger was Davis' first hit in the last three games following a stretch where he hit safely in eight consecutive contests. The 28-year-old has career bests in homers (40) and RBI (99) this season and boasts a .250/.306/.525 line overall.
Davis (illness) is back in the cleanup spot for the A's Friday against the Rangers. He missed two games with an illness but should return to operating in the middle of Oakland's lineup over the final 10 days of the season. A Statcast darling due to his launch angle and exit velocity, Davis has surprisingly cemented himself as one of the better power hitters in the game this season. He has set career highs in homers (40), runs (82) and RBI (99) this season.
Davis (illness) remains out of the lineup Wednesday against the Astros. He was a late scratch Tuesday due to an illness, and is apparently still under the weather. The A's have an off day Thursday, so hopefully that extra day allows him to get healthy in advance of this weekend's series against the Rangers. Jake Smolinski will slide over to left field with Brett Eibner getting the start in center field Wednesday.
Davis was 1-for-3 with two RBI and hit his 38th bomb of the season Friday night against the Rangers. Davis has absolutely owned the Rangers this year with eight homer and 21 RBI in a mere 13 games against Texas this season. Davis has struggled in September, hitting only .191 so far in 47 at-bats, but appears to be warming with three homers in his last five games as he gets closer to his first season with 40 homers and / or 100 RBI.
