Chris Davis enters break with league-worst .199 average
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

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

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 smacks 14th home run Monday
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

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.
