Davis, who was hitting just .176 (3-for-17) before spring training was suspended, was nevertheless beginning to make solid contact consistently after a delayed start to Cactus League play, Shayna Rubin of The Mercury News reports. A calf injury prevented Davis from making his Cactus League debut until Feb. 25, and he ultimately saw action in a modest eight games before a pause was put on spring training. The veteran slugger is looking to bounce back from a forgettable 2019, one in which he posted career lows across his .220/.293/.387 slash line and belted a modest -- by his standards -- 23 home runs across 133 games. A day before the Athletics' final spring game for the time being, manager Bob Melvin had remarked that Davis "will start swinging the bat better" the more reps he gets, but the 32-year-old will now have to wait an undetermined amount of time to validate that statement.
Davis (calf) went 1-for-2 in a Cactus League loss to the Padres on Tuesday. Davis had been slowed by a calf strain to start camp, but he was able to suit up as expected Tuesday. The slugger slotted into the designated hitter role and operated out of the clean-up spot, with those conditions likely to be replicated consistently during the regular season.
Davis (calf) will play Tuesday against the Padres, Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle reports. Davis had been slowed at the start of camp by a minor calf issue. He'll be making his spring debut over a month before the start of the regular season, however, so he should have plenty of time to get up to speed by Opening Day.
Davis is dealing with a minor calf injury, Martin Gallegos of MLB.com reports. Manager Bob Melvin said the 32-year-old should still be able to make his spring debut Tuesday against the Padres. Davis struggled with a .680 OPS amid injury problems in 2019, so staying clear of any serious issues in spring training will be important for the veteran slugger.
Davis (illness) went 0-for-3 with a walk in a loss to the Mariners on Friday. Davis was back in the lineup Friday after a two-game absence due to the stomach flu. The veteran slugger had gone 3-for-8 with a double, a home run and two RBI over the two games prior to falling ill, but he's still hitting a middling .208 in September as he wraps up an underwhelming regular season overall.
