Fantasy Impact: Davis' OPS is now down to .764 after his solid start to the season. He struggled in May, posting a sub-.700 OPS for the month with a .210 batting average. He's streaky, but his production is helped by the fact that he continues to hit in the middle of the Orioles' lineup and because he's been able to continue to take walks and score runs.

Doug Fister, the Astros' starter on Tuesday, has a decent .768 OPS against current Orioles' hitters, but Chris Davis, Manny Machado, and Pedro Alvarez have had their successes against the right-hander. Davis has a .385 batting average and two home runs in 13 at-bats against Fister in his career and has six of his 10 home runs this season on the road.

Fantasy Impact: Davis only has a .143 batting average over the last seven days, hitting only one home run in his last 10 games, but tonight could be the day that he heats up. Davis and Machado are each at the top of the lineup and have good numbers against Fister, giving an opportunity for Davis to knock Machado in. Most of Davis' value lies in him slugging a home run, but look for him to drive in at least one run with an extra-base hit tonight.


Chris Davis went 0-for-4 Thursday with a pair of strikeouts. He's now 3-for-16 over his last six games without a HR or RBI.

Chris Davis' woes continue

Sun, May 8th 6:01pm EDT
By Chris Zolli

Chris Davis was 0-for-3 with a walk and a run scored in Sunday's 11-3 win for the Orioles against the Athletics. Even though Davis got on base, he is now 2-for-22 over the last seven days and now has a .200 batting average for the season. Davis does have a .759 OPS this season, as he has eight home runs for the Orioles.

Fantasy Impact: A wise piece of advise was given to Davis while he developed into baseball's premier slugger: do what you can and don't stress too much; that advice has turned him into a 40-plus home run slugger, but has also seen him expose holes in his swing. Fantasy owners need to know that Davis is a violently streaky player and his power will create his value, as his eight home runs, 19 RBI, and 22 runs scored are very valuable for fantasy owners. Davis is worth owning if you can absorb his low batting average and streaky play, enjoying his power and patience (18 walks rank seventh in the American League).

Chris Davis silenced Tuesday

Chris Davis went 0-for-4 in Tuesday's loss.

Fantasy Impact: While Davis' average is hovering around the Mendoza line, he's still managed to be productive this season. He's made his limited hits count, as five of his nine hits have been home runs. He has scored 13 times and has 10 RBI thanks, in part, to his 10 walks and the fact that he's hitting in the middle of a potent lineup.

Chris Davis went 0-for-4 with two strikeouts in the Orioles' 5-3 win over the Tampa Bay Rays.

Fantasy Impact: This is the standard we have come to expect from Davis. Sandwiched between two 0-for-4 games is a game where he went 1-for-4 with three runs scored, one RBI, and a HR. Davis will give you the power and RBI numbers you want, but you have to be willing to take the hitless games as well.

Chris Davis launched his second home run of the season against Chris Archer in Friday's win over the Rays.

Chris Davis went 2-for-4 with a home run, run scored and a RBI in the Orioles' 4-2 win over the Minnesota Twins.

Fantasy Impact: This is what we have come to expect from one of the best power hitters in baseball. If Davis can keep his average around .280, that is an added benefit to all the power and RBI numbers. Expect Davis to compete for the home run title and keep him in your lineups at all times.

Chris Davis went 0-for-3 with two walks, a strikeout and one man left on base in the Orioles' 3-2 win over the Minnesota Twins.

Chris Davis went 1-for-3 in the Orioles' 16-8 win over the Boston Red Sox with a homerun, one run, one walk, an RBI and two strikeouts.

Fantasy Impact: This is what we want from Chris Davis, homeruns. Davis was drafted for the sole purposes of carrying your team in the power and RBI categories. Everything else is just an added benefit. The homeruns are coming right in time for the season to begin. Be careful not to over-pay for power, but Davis should still be one of the first 1Bs off the board come draft day.

Chris Davis went 0-for-2 with two strikeouts in the Orioles' 9-3 win over the Pirates.

Fantasy Impact: Chris Davis is hitting .130 this spring with three hits in 23 at-bats. Davis is a streaky hitter,but we cannot forget that two years ago Davis hit .196 for the year. At the same time, you do not find this kind of power on the waiver wire. Based on his spring slump, you might be able to find him at a cheaper price come draft day.

Chris Davis went 0-for-3 with two strikeouts in the Orioles 8-7 win over the Philadelphia Phillies.

Fantasy Impact: Chris Davis has been in a slump so far this spring. This slump can work wonders if you have anyone in your league that pays close attention to spring training. If they do, they will allow Davis to fall and you can draft him at a lower ADP. Keep him right where he is as he should challenge for the league lead in homeruns.

Fantasy Impact: Chris Davis signed a huge deal this summer and it should pay off for the Orioles in a big way. FantasyPros projects Davis to hit 40 HR and have over 100 RBIs. In any draft I would project, and suggest, Davis to go within the first five 1B picked.

After testing the open market, Chris Davis will return to Baltimore, penning a seven-year, $161 million contract with the Orioles. Davis slugged 47 home runs for the Orioles in 2015 and had a ,923 OPS. There had not been too much interest on the open market for Davis at the price point he demanded and pundits saw the Orioles shifting their interest to Yoenis Cespedes (Source: Jon Heyman on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Davis has smacked 159 home runs over the last four seasons, but there are issues to fear regression in Davis. For all the home runs Davis hits, he is only one season removed from hitting .196 over 127 games in 2014 and topped 200 strikeouts for the first time in 2015. The 2014 performance came a year after slugging 53 home runs and topping a 1.000 OPS; Davis' talent is well known but so too is his volatility. Look at him as a top-10 1B, but do not overspend for the slugging 1B.

He went 1 for 3 in the game with two RBIs and two walks. Davis now has 109 RBIs on the year which is good enough for third on the year. Davis is having a spectacular year even though his club cannot say the same. He is batting .264 on the year.

Fantasy Impact: Crush Davis has simply been a stud this year. He has had ups and downs like any ball player but he is really showing his power off this year and taking the cover off the ball. He should be starting in every league and is almost always worth the price in daily leagues.

Baltimore Orioles first baseman Chris Davis hit a walk-off home run in the bottom of the 11th inning on Wednesday night versus Tampa Bay. Davis was 3-for-4 including two home runs and three RBI.

Fantasy Impact: It was his fifth mutli home run game of the season and his second walk-off home run of the year. The home run also snapped a drought in which the Orioles hadn't led in 50 innings. Hopefully, this will help spring the Orioles into a much needed winning streak as they have seen their record plummet these past three weeks.

The Orioles were anialated by the Rays Tuesday night to the score of 11-2. A lone bright spot for the club was that Chris Davis was able to pad his numbers by hitting his 36th home run of the year in the ninth inning. It was his only hit of the night and accounted for the only two runs the Orioles could muster. He now has 94 RBIs on the year.

Fantasy Impact: Davis has had a rough couple of weeks so hopefully this home run will help boost his confidence. He is a power threat every time he steps up to the plate so keeping him in your fantasy roster is not a bad bet. He is also one of very few Orioles worth taking a chance on in daily fantasy leagues. Keep an eye out to see if Davis can turn this into a hot streak or if this was just an anomaly.

The Orioles lost again Monday night falling 6-3 against the Rays. A key component of the Orioles' offense is Chris Davis who continued his struggles Monday going 0 for 4 with two strikeouts. Davis has only four hits in his last 26 plate appearances (.154 BA) which explains why Baltimore has only won once in the past 12 games. His average is continuing to dip, plummeting to .249 on the year. If Baltimore wants to end the year on some sort of positive note, they will need Davis to get out of this funk.

Fantasy Impact: Davis supplied the Orioles with most of their power (leading the team with 35 homers and 92 RBIs). However, when Davis isn't on fire it can be ugly as the last two weeks have shown. Davis cannot be trusted at the moment in daily leagues or on an everyday fantasy basis until he shows signs of regaining his form.

Davis is the one guy carrying the offense and fantasy owners should continue to trust him with confidence.

Fantasy Impact: Davis is in the top three of the American League with 31 home runs (3rd) and 83 RBIs (2nd). Davis is the main power option in this lineup so look at Wednesday as an anomaly and not a trend.

Fantasy Impact: Davis has been very good for the Orioles this season and has helped them in tight games. While Davis's offense was solid today it was the other bats that let down the Orioles. Davis this season is hitting .234 this season, with 18 homers, 51 RBI, and an OPS of .785. Davis will bring a solid bat to any team that needs a player to provide offense, Davis is a solid everyday middle of the line-up player that could easily help teams that need a jump.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
