      Does the seesaw of Chris Davis' production continue?

      No player in baseball has more home runs over the past four seasons than Chris Davis. Of course, that production hasn't come in the most even distribution. After a disastrous 2014 campaign in which Davis hit below the Mendoza and served a suspension, he bounced back in a big way and earned a monstrous contract. Davis will turn 30 before the season starts and boasts a career 31 percent strikeout rate that will sting in points leagues. Even with those negatives, it's difficult to pass up on the the most prolific power hitter of the past four years. Davis walks enough to boast an OBP over .360 in two of the last three seasons and is a career .255 hitter despite 2014. You can make a case for Davis as a second round pick but you should pounce on him if he falls into the third.

      Orioles' Chris Davis: Signs $161 million deal with Orioles

      Davis will return to the Orioles on a seven-year, $161 million deal, Ken Rosenthal of Fox Sports reports. It appeared Davis had spurned the Orioles and their previous $150 million offer, but the magic of Scott Boras and the Orioles lack of left-handed hitters and power without Davis was enough to get the deal done. Davis will remain in the home run haven of Camden Yards, which was the second most homer friendly park in MLB last season going by park factors. There is a very real, and possibly even inevitable, chance that this deal eventually sours, considering Davis' high strikeout rates and defense that is questionable even at first base. The deal is the largest in Orioles history and positions Davis firmly as one of their franchise players.

      Chris Davis: Declines qualifying offer

      Davis declined his qualifying offer from the Orioles on Friday and remains a free agent, Chris Cotillo of SB Nation reports. As expected, Davis declined the one-year, $15.8 million offer, with a much more lucrative payday awaiting him on the open market. The 29-year-old rebounded from a 2014 season in which he hit under the Mendoza Line, posting a .923 OPS with 47 home runs in 2015, giving him 159 homers over the last four seasons.

      Chris Davis: Extended qualifying offer

      Davis was extended a qualifying offer by the Orioles on Friday. The Orioles were expected to tender an offer, but it's very unlikely Davis will accept. After a disappointing 2014 campaign, the 29-year-old had a bounce-back 2015, slugging 47 home runs while raising his average back up to .262. He'll be among the most coveted free agents, and could land the highest contract among hitters of the 2016 class.

      Orioles 1B Chris Davis contributes to defeat of Boston

      Orioles slugger Chris Davis went 2 for 6 with a game-winning RBI and a run scored in Tuesday's 6-5 victory over the Red Sox. His single in the 13th inning plated Gerardo Parra, giving him 19 hits and 15 RBI in 14 September contests. The power-hitting first baseman shows no signs of slowing down, with four multi-hit performances in his last six games. Davis figures to continue a push for the 50-homer mark over the remainder of the 2015 campaign, although it will take one of his trademark barrages to get there.

      Orioles 1B Chris Davis has a blast - twice - to bury Athletics

      There is hot. There is red-hot. There is white-hot. And then there is Orioles slugger Chris Davis. Davis continued his assault on opposing pitchers with two more home runs Saturday night against Oakland, including a two-run job that put his team on the board in the fourth and a solo shot that won it in the ninth. He has six home runs in the last six games, nine home runs in August and a ridiculous 15 over his last 23 games. Davis has 34 home runs and 88 RBI on the season and has sweetened his slash line to .259/.342/.555.
