Davis is not in the lineup Monday against the Yankees, Roch Kubatko of MASN Sports reports. Davis will take a seat for Monday's series opener with left-hander J.A. Happ toeing the rubber for the opposition. In his place, Trey Mancini will cover first base while Joey Rickard draws a start in the outfield.
Davis went 2-for-3 with a solo home run, two RBI and a walk in an 8-3 loss to the Angels on Friday. This was Davis' second multi-hit game in the last two weeks, which doesn't sound like much but is an achievement considering how his season started. He has hits in six of his last 10 games as well, and still, Davis is batting below .200. Obviously, he really dug himself a hole going 0-for-33 to start the year. He is batting .193 with four home runs, 16 RBI and nine runs in 88 at-bats this season.
Davis is not in the lineup Wednesday against the Red Sox, Nathan Ruiz of The Baltimore Sun reports. Davis will unsurprisingly head to the bench Wednesday to avoid a lefty-on-lefty matchup with Chris Sale. Trey Mancini will cover first base in his absence, with Joey Rickard picking up a start in right field as a result.
Davis is not in the lineup for Game 1 of Wednesday's doubleheader against the White Sox, Jon Meoli of The Baltimore Sun reports. Davis will hit the bench for the first half of Wednesday's twin bill with a left-hander in Carlos Rodon starting for the White Sox. Renato Nunez is starting at first base and hitting third in his place.
Davis went 2-for-4 with two RBI in Monday's 5-3 loss to the White Sox. Since Davis ended his historic cold streak earlier this month, he's been surprisingly solid at the dish. Over his last 35 at-bats, he's 12-for-35 (.343 average), collecting 11 RBI with six extra-base hits in the process.
