Davis is not in the lineup Tuesday against the Mariners. Davis has started the last 60 games, slashing .249/.328/.609 with 25 homers and 56 RBI over that stretch. He'll get what appears to be a rare day off after the A's clinched a playoff berth with Monday's win. Jed Lowrie will serve as the DH in place of Davis on Tuesday, allowing Chad Pinder to pick up a start at the keystone.
Davis went 1-for-5 with a solo home run Monday against the Mariners. Davis tallied his 46th homer of the season when he took Adam Warren deep in the sixth inning to give the Athletics a 3-1 lead. He has regularly displayed his scintillating power, homering five times in his past 10 starts. He leads the league in home runs and is among the leaders in nearly every power-related statistic, including slugging percentage and OPS.
Davis went 2-for-5 with a two home runs and three RBI in Oakland's 7-6 victory over the Twins on Friday. The slugger provided the game-winning blow in this contest, sending the Athletics to the walkoff victory with his second long ball of the day in the 10th inning off Matt Magill. The two-homer performance gives Davis a new career high of 45 after he hit 43 in each of the past two seasons, as he continues to entrench himself as one of the most consistent sources of power in the league in his age-30 season.
Davis went 2-for-4 with an RBI single, a double and two runs in a win over the Angels on Thursday. Somewhat surprisingly, Davis did not leave the yard during a 21-run outburst for the Athletics, but he still managed to extend his modest hitting streak to four games. Davis has actually been relatively quiet -- by his standards -- on the power front during the month, launching a quartet of home runs over 70 plate appearances. However, he's made up for it with more consistency at the plate, as Davis' .270 average and .343 on-base percentage during September are his second-best figures in a full month this season.
Davis went 1-for-4 with a grand slam in Sunday's 5-4 loss to Tampa Bay. Davis was responsible for all four of Oakland's runs on the day, delivering a home run with the bases loaded in the ninth inning. Despite this, the Athletics would come up short in a one-run loss. The 30-year-old outfielder continues to knock the cover off the ball in 2018, posting 43 homers, 115 RBI and a .871 OPS through 140 games.
