Fantasy Impact: Davis has been a solid player this season for the Orioles and has helped them many games this season. Davis has played 80 games this season with an AVG of .236, with 18 home runs, 49 RBI, and an OPS of .800. Davis has helped the Orioles been solid both defensively and offensively this season.

Davis' .238 average is the highest it has been since May 13th and he's been slugging a solid .444 his last seven games. Davis is now sixth in the American League in home runs. Davis is on pace to hit close to 40 home runs and over 100 RBIs on the year. Look for Davis to continue his hot streak and raise his batting average north of .250.

On Wednesday, the Baltimore Orioles lost to the Boston Red Sox 5-1. In the loss Chris Davis went 1-3 with an RBI single, a walk, and a strikeout.

Fantasy Impact: Davis has had a hot and cold season so far this year, he has a heavy swing and a lot of power. But he has had a tough time being a constant threat every time he is up to bat. This season Davis has 15 home runs, 40 RBI, and is hitting .227 this season. Davis is swinging the bat pretty well, he doesn't make contact always but when he does he is able to take the ball for a ride. Davis would bring a solid player to any team looking to solidify their bench, and could use him only in match-ups that would favor Davis. It'll be interesting to see what Davis will do as the season progresses.

On Friday, the Baltimore Orioles lost 5-4 to the Toronto Blue Jays. In the loss Chirs Davis went 1-4 with an RBI single, a walk, and two strikeouts.

Fantasy Impact: Davis has been very hot and cold at the plate this season. He can't seem to be consistent with his offense, and really just seems to get them in bunches. This season Davis is hitting .224 in 228 at bats, with 14 home runs, and 38 RBI. As a player Davis is the same as he has been in recent years, he can never stay consistent but still puts up good numbers. Davis would be a solid bench guy that could be used in match-ups that favor him as hitter, as of right now I wouldn't keep him as an everyday player just because there is no consistency. We will see how Davis responds tomorrow as they take on the Blue Jays in the second game of the weekend series.

The Orioles absolutely smoked the the Philles on Monday 19-3. Chris Davis was a key contributor to the victory with a home run, and an RBI.

Fantasy Impact: Davis has been a good player this season for the Orioles.He is currently hitting .230, with 13 home runs, and 37 RBI through 62 games this season. Dais has been the player that he has always been, a high strikeout player that has a lot of power. He has been able to come up big in spots this season where the Orioles really needed him too. Davis would be a solid addition to any team that is looking for a power hitter, but is able to use him in match-ups that favor him. Davis will look to stay consistent as we approach the all-star break.

On Friday, the Baltimore Orioles crushed the New York Yankees 11-3. In the game, Chris Davis went 3-5, with a home run, and four RBI. Davis was one of the nine starters for the O's that contributed with a hit.

Fantasy Impact: The home run was Davis's twelfth of the season, and his first in six games. Through 58 games Davis is hitting .222, with 33 RBI, and has an OPS .769. Davis has been hot and cold this season, he has had a hard time keeping his average up and hasn't been a consistent threat at the plate. But this game could be something huge for Davis, this performance could lead to more confidence at the plate and more production. Davis has been up and down as of late but if he can figure it out, he will be able to salvage the rest of his season. If his offense picks up then he would be a great everyday player, that could bring plenty of offense to any team that is lacking it. But as of right now, you would only want to use Davis if the match-up favors him that way you can get the most out of him. It'll be interesting to see what this game will do for Davis, and for the Orioles who look to make up ground in the AL East.

Davis went 2-for-3 with a walk and a run scored on Wednesday.

Fantasy Impact: It was a rare game of reaching base three times for the slugger. He is not the elite player we saw in 2013 but he is still a viable fantasy option. He is going to hurt your ratios but he will give you power and fair production in runs and RBI. He is best paired with a player like Kipnis who has high average but less power.

On Thursday, the Baltimore Orioles beat the Houston Astros 3-2. The game saw Chris Davis drive an RBI single, to lead off the scoring for the O's. Davis's single helped lift the Orioles to the win on Thursday. (Source: Baltimore Orioles Official Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: The first baseman has been better as of late, his bat is improving and he is starting to knock in more runs. Davis is hitting .219 in 183 at bats, with 12 home runs, and 32 RBI. Davis's production has slowed since he seven RBI in four games. In the last six games Davis has slumped a little bit only getting two RBI and no home runs. Even though Davis had picked in up over those games, his production has slowed to a screeching halt. Davis has been extremely hot and cold this season, he has not been able to get out of the starting blocks. Even if he started to pick up his production he has always taken a step back production wise. If Davis can some how find a way to stay consistent for the rest of the season, the he would be a solid pick up for a team that is looking for a power bat. But as of right now, Davis would probably just be a good player to have on your bench. It'll be interesting to see if Davis can get himself back on track in the games to come.

The Orioles lost to the Houston Astros 5-2 on Monday. In the game, Chris Davis blasted an RBI double. Davis's double was inches away from going yard, which he has been doing more consistently as of late. (Source: Baltimore Orioles Official Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: This season Davis has struggled to be consistent at the plate, but he is still hitting for power despite the fact that he his struggled. Davis has a .226 AVG in 168 at bats, with 12 home runs, and 30 RBI. Davis has been a consistent power threat recently, and has seemed to find himself at the plate a little bit. While his numbers have been down a little this season, his AVG is up and he has started to find his power. Davis would be a solid pick up, for a team that wouldn't need to play him every single day and could work the match-ups. If Davis can turn it on as we start to get down the stretch of the season, then he would be great pick-up for a team looking for a power first baseman.

On Thursday, in the second game of the double header the Orioles were able to beat the Whitesox 6-3. In the game Chris Davis who hit a home run in the 9th inning of the first game, gave the Orioles the lead with an RBI ground rule double. (Source: Baltimore Orioles Official Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Davis has been hot at the plate lately, and his bat has really helped the Orioles. Davis now has 11 home runs, 29 RBI, with a .220 batting average this season. Davis lately has been one of the most consistent Orioles over the past few games. He has three home runs in as many games, as while as six RBI over those games. With Davis heating up now it will pay off later in the season for the Orioles as they make a run toward the postseason. If Davis can keep this up then he will continue to be a consistent threat at the plate, and would be the perfect depth player for a team. As long as Davis stays on this hot streak he will continue to help the Orioles and owners.

Chris Davis stays consistent

On Thursday, the Orioles fell to the Whitesox 3-2 in the first game of a double header. In the game Chris Davis hit a two run home run in the bottom of the ninth to get the Orioles with one run of the Sox. (Source: Baltimore Orioles Official Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Davis's home run continued his recent streak of hotness. Davis now has 11 home runs, with 28 RBI, and a .216 AVG. Davis's bat has come alive as of late and he has become on of the more consistent players for the Orioles. He has added great depth to a line-up that is struggling for offense. He has found his swing recently, and has been hitting for power more and more. It'll be interesting to see if Davis can keep this up in the second game of the double header. If he can continue this hot streak, then he would be the perfect guy to add depth into a line up looking for someone who can hit for power and be consistent.

Chris Dvais lifted the Orioles to a win over the Astros, with 2 home runs. The home runs were numbers nine and ten on the season for Davis. Davi's home runs were the key difference in the Orioles 5-4 win over the Astros. (Source: Baltimore Orioles Official Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Wednesday's multi home run game was the eighth of Davis's career. Davis has been a very good producer at the plate for the O's, he is hitting .216 in 153 at bats, with ten home runs, and 26 RBI. Davis is one of many players who has started to pick it up for the Orioles at this point in the season. Along with Jimmy Paredes, Steve Pearce, and Adam Jones, Davis has been great as of late at the plate. He is adding depth to a line-up that has been a lot better since their starters have found their swings and turned it on after their slow starts. I would pick up Chris Davis now because if he gets hot, he will be gone and you will wish that you had picked him up.

Baltimore Orioles first baseman Chris Davis hits a three-run homer in Wednesday's game against the Chicago White Sox in the first inning but none of the fans saw it. That is because the City of Baltimore is under a State of Emergency due to the violent riots and protests stemming from an arrested city resident, Freddie Gray, who died in police custody.

Fantasy Impact: Davis is working on becoming a power hitter by going 1-for-4 in Saturday's game, with his average at .250 with 3 RBIs. Unfortunately, due to the "fan block-out," there was no one to catch the ball he playfully threw in the stands as he ran off the field.

Chris Davis went 2-for-5 with 2 RBIs and a homerun in Saturday's game against the Red Sox. He is currently hitting .235/.297/.412.

Fantasy Impact: This game might be the spark Chris Davis needed to get out of his rough start to the season. He took some good pitches and worked the count in this game. Look for him to get some better at bats.

Chris Davis went hit-less in three at bats with one strike out as a designated hitter in Tuesday's game against the Rays. It was his first game back after a 25-game suspension.

Fantasy Impact: Although he did not record a hit today, do not count out Chris Davis for the rest of the season. He had a decent Spring Training, and once he gets back into the game, expect more hits from Davis.

Fantasy Impact: Things are looking good for Chris Davis as he seems to be getting some of his contact and power back this Spring Training. Today he raised his batting average to .231. He has the potential to have a comeback year.

Fantasy Impact: This is Davis' second home run during Spring Training. He has a .217 BA so far in Spring Training, but he seems to be seeing the ball much better. Look to Davis to have a comeback year.

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.
