Davis is not in the lineup Sunday against the Red Sox, Eduardo A. Encina of The Baltimore Sun reports. Davis will get the day off as the Orioles square off against lefty Eduardo Rodriguez and the Red Sox. Davis has just two hits in his last 24 at-bats, driving down his season average to a disastrous .166 mark. Trey Mancini will pick up the start at first base with Craig Gentry getting the call in left field.
Davis is out of the lineup Sunday against the Rays, Jon Meoli of The Baltimore Sun reports. Davis went 0-for-8 while playing both halves of the Orioles' doubleheader Saturday, so he'll receive a breather for the series finale. Trey Mancini will pick up the start at first base and hit leadoff Sunday.
Davis went 1-for-3 with a three-run homer in Wednesday's 5-3 win over the Royals. It continues to be mostly boom-or-bust for Davis, who's now gone deep in back-to-back games, but has struck out at least once in 12 of the last 14 games and has a 32.1 strikeout percentage for the season. With his average at a lowly .176, he'll have to raise his slugging percentage well above it's current .294 to make him a trustworthy fantasy option once again.
Davis is out of the lineup Sunday against the Tigers, Jon Meoli of The Baltimore Sun reports. Manager Buck Showalter will hold Davis out of the lineup against an opposing lefty starter (Daniel Norris) for the second straight day, a surprising development given the Orioles skipper stated Saturday that the slugging first baseman would be back out there for the series finale. With Davis batting just .167 with two home runs and six RBI across 101 plate appearances this season, he may need to catch fire against right-handed pitching first before Showalter can justify returning the 32-year-old to a full-time role.
Davis is not in the lineup for Saturday's game against the Tigers. It's just a routine off day for Davis, who has continued to struggle this season with a .167/.257/.256 slash line and only two home runs in 90 at-bats. Trey Mancini takes over at first base for the Orioles with Craig Gentry playing in left.
