When asked about the current Orioles roster and outfield depth, manager Buck Showalter responded, "I think you'll see us do something between now and spring training. I do. And if we don't, I like where we are. You've got (Alejandro) De Aza in left field, you've got of course Adam (Jones) in center field, Steve Pearce and Chris Davis (in right)." (Source: MASN)

Fantasy Impact: While Showalter clarified that Davis is still projected as the Opening Day first baseman, make sure to check the position eligibility rules in your league. If Davis plays enough right field to gain OF eligibility, his value should rise. Davis hit .196 with 26 HR last year after hitting .286 and a league leading 53 HR in 2013.

According to Roch Kubatko, Buck Showalter confirmed in a recent interview with 105.7 The Fan that Chris Davis got approved "for what he got suspended for": Adderall. Davis received a 50 game suspension for using Adderall in 2014 and will be allowed to use it in 2015. (Source: Roch Kubatko on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: This comes as good news as the Orioles desperately need Davis to replace Nelson Cruz's bat in the lineup. Davis struggled through a disappointing 2014 season after leading the league in home runs in 2013. While it's impossible to say what effect the medication will have on his numbers, fantasy owners should expect a bounce back season from the power hitting first baseman. Last year, Davis' biggest issue was contact, evidenced by a .196 batting average. This low average was mainly the result of bad luck; in 2014, Davis posted a .242 BABIP, well below his career average of .320.
