Athletics' Melvin: Ike Davis likely to platoon with Billy Butler
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Athletics manager Bob Melvin indicated Wednesday that first baseman Ike Davis would likely only start against right-handed pitching and will begin the season in a platoon with Billy Butler, MLB.com reports.

"We start out a certain way, and then if things transpire, we change our minds," Melvin said. "But we're all about trying to get the best lineup out there on a particular day."

Davis took 92 percent of his at-bats against right-handed pitching last season.

"It is what it is -- just have to play the game when they tell you to play the game," Davis said of the planned platoon. "I had some success platooning last year, so I hope to build on it and continue getting better.''

Davis is in the midst of a fine spring, going 11 for 22 and drawing three walks.

Billy Butler looking to be force in A's lineup, drive in a lot of runs
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Athletics DH Billy Butler has seen a decline in power the last two seasons and belted just nine home runs in 2014, which was his lowest total since hitting eight as a rookie in 2007.

Now that he is in his first year with Oakland, Butler is looking to restore his power swing and help the A's chase a World Series title.

"I was brought in to be a middle-of-the-order bat and to be a force in the lineup -- to drive in a lot of runs," Butler said, per MLB.com. "Extra-base hits are big for guys in the lineup. [While I'm not aiming for] any certain numbers ... run production is a big part [of] me contributing to this team.

"I'm out to prove that I'm a valuable piece [of] a championship team. I'm a little sour the Giants beat me in the World Series. It's the Bay Area, [so I want to] go get the [Bay Bridge Series] when we play them this year. So I'm excited for that."
