Davis is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Marlins. Davis started in each of the Mets' last three games and went 3-for-11 with a walk, a run scored and an RBI, but he still may have a tough time finding consistent at-bats against right-handed pitching. With manager Buck Showalter electing to open up more frequent starts for Luis Guillorme in the infield, the Mets look content to rotate a number of players at designated hitter rather than relying on Davis as the primary option at that position.
Davis isn't in the lineup Wednesday against the Brewers. Davis recently drew four consecutive starts and went 6-for-15 with a homer, four runs, a walk and five strikeouts during that time. However, he'll be out of the lineup for a second consecutive game while Eduardo Escobar serves as the designated hitter with Luis Guillorme starting at third base.
Davis is not in the lineup for Tuesday's game against the Brewers. Davis had started four straight games, grabbing at least one hit in all four, but he'll nonetheless head to the bench here. Nick Plummer will get the start as the designated hitter.
Davis went 2-for-4 with a solo home run in Sunday's win over the Angels. His fourth-inning blast off Patrick Sandoval proved to be the winning run in a 4-1 victory. Davis has started 10 of the last 12 games, primarily as the Mets' DH, and while he's slashed .341/.391/.463 over that stretch, Sunday's long ball was only his second of the season in 136 plate appearances.
Davis will bat eighth as the designated hitter Thursday against the Dodgers, Anthony DiComo of MLB.com reports. The Mets were forced to shuffle their lineup after Francisco Lindor suffered a finger injury. Davis is a beneficiary and will draw only his eighth start of the season with a righty on the mound. He has maintained a .247/.343/.353 line across 99 plate appearances on the campaign.
