Athletics' Khris Davis: Remains on bench

Athletics' Khris Davis: Gets breather Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Davis is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Astros.

Though Davis saw his three-game hitting streak come to an end Saturday, his general trend of encouraging at-bats continued, as he didn't strike out in any of his three plate appearances. Davis is still sitting on a career-worst 32.5 percent strikeout rate, however, and that combined with a .227 BABIP has limited him to a lowly .167 average through 10 games.

Athletics' Khris Davis: Benefits from adjustments
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Davis' recent 4-for-6 surge over two games against the Rangers came after making an adjustment to his hand positioning in the batter's box, Martin Gallegos of MLB.com reports. "It's just been helping me be more accurate to the ball. I'm finding less swings-and-misses and a little better contact," Davis said. "Just having them farther back, there's less room to go. They're already ready to fire. It's been working."

Davis moved his hands further back and slightly higher in his stance after opening the season in a 1-for-21 slump. The adjustment paid immediate dividends against Texas, and they stemmed from advice provided by hitting coaches Darren Bush and Eric Martins after the slugger went to both for help. Davis' extended struggles with the bat -- he hit just 13 home runs over the final 98 games of last season as well -- appeared to trace back to a left hip contusion he sustained on May 5, 2019 after running into the railing along the left-field line at PNC Park in Pittsburgh. "We've just been working nonstop trying to figure out what is going to work," Davis said. "I think when I got hurt, I started getting set up in a different way. My body just wasn't adjusting to that injury. When I put my hands further back, it just kind of freed things up."

Athletics' Khris Davis: Keeps up momentum Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Davis went 2-for-3 with a two-run single in a win over the Rangers on Thursday, He's now 4-for-6 with a home run, four RBI and two runs over his last two games.

Davis' numbers were in such dire straits prior to the recent two-game sample that his season line is still only .185/.290/.296. Nevertheless, the slugger -- and fantasy managers who have shares in him -- will undoubtedly focus on the positive, as Davis hadn't laced so much as a single extra-base hit this season prior to his round tripper Monday against the Mariners.

Athletics' Khris Davis: Out again Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Davis is not in the lineup Wednesday against the Rangers.

Davis will sit for a second straight game as Mark Canha draws the start at DH in his place Wednesday. The veteran slugger, who is 3-for-24 with a home run and 10 strikeouts this season, has found himself on the bench against each of the past four right-handed opposing starters.

Athletics' Khris Davis: Not in lineup Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Davis isn't in the lineup Tuesday against the Rangers.

Davis has been in a bit of a slump over the start of the 2020 season, but Monday's performance was a bright spot as he blasted his first home run of the season. However, the 32-year-old will still take a seat in the series opener against the Rangers as Mark Canha will shift to the designated hitter role, with Robbie Grossman starting in left field and batting sixth.

Athletics' Khris Davis: Launches first homer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Davis went 2-for-3 with a solo home run, two RBI, two runs scored and a walk in Monday's 11-1 win over the Mariners.

Davis started the 2020 season with four straight hitless performances, but he is turning things around -- he has recorded hits in two of his last three games. This was his first home run of the season, and there should be many more to come for the veteran slugger. He has blasted at least 23 home runs in each of his last five seasons.

Athletics' Khris Davis: Sitting again
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Davis is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Mariners.

The struggling Davis will sit for the second time this weekend as the Athletics hand Seth Brown his first start of the season at designated hitter. Through five games this season, Davis is hitting .053 (1-for-19) and has struck out eight times.

Athletics' Khris Davis: Not starting Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Davis is not in the lineup Friday against the Mariners.

Davis will be out of the Athletics' lineup for the second consecutive game after going 0-for-15 with seven strikeouts over his first four games this year. Mark Canha will shift to the designated hitter role with Robbie Grossman starting in left field and batting sixth.

Athletics' Khris Davis: Day off Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Davis is not in the lineup Wednesday against the Rockies.

Davis has started the season going 0-for-15 with seven strikeouts. While that's a small sample, it's certainly discouraging given the veteran struggled to a career-worst .220/.293/.387 slash line last season. He appears to be something less than a true everyday player in Oakland at the moment, as Wednesday's off day is his second in the team's first six games.

Athletics' Khris Davis: Out of Sunday's lineup
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Davis isn't in the lineup for Sunday's game against the Angels.

Davis served as the designated hitter for the first two games of the series but will take a seat after going 0-for-7 with a run scored, two walks and three strikeouts. Vimael Machin will bat seventh as the designated hitter Sunday.

Athletics' Khris Davis: Participating in summer camp
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Davis has been a full participant in the Athletics summer camp thus far, Matt Kawahara of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

The slugger is healthy and accounted for, working out alongside his teammates and also participating in a live batting practice Tuesday against Chris Bassitt, who Davis laced a hit against according to Martin Gallegos of MLB.com. He also impressed manager Bob Melvin in Monday night's camp session with Melissa Lockard of The Athletic noting Davis "was hitting some balls out that had the type of carry" he usually achieves when making contact. The veteran will look to utilize the remainder of camp to continue getting his swing right after hitting just .176 (3-for-17) during Cactus League play.

Athletics' Khris Davis: Showing signs of life before pause
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Athletics' Khris Davis: Singles in spring debut
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Athletics' Khris Davis: Set for spring debut
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Athletics' Khris Davis: Managing calf injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Athletics' Khris Davis: Returns to lineup in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Davis (illness) will serve as the designated hitter and bat sixth Friday night against the Mariners.

Athletics' Khris Davis: Remains out Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Athletics' Khris Davis: Battling stomach flu
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Davis is absent from Wednesday's lineup against the Angels due to the stomach flu, Martin Gallegos of MLB.com reports.

Davis is unavailable off the bench Wednesday since he remained at the team hotel. It's unclear if the illness is expected to impact the veteran slugger's availability for the upcoming four-game series in Seattle.
