Chris Davis heading to DL

Chris Davis will be placed on the disabled list Wednesday due to a strained oblique.

Fantasy Impact

This is a tough blow to the Orioles and Davis owners. Obliques are tricky, and it will likely be at least a month layoff for the slugger. He's hard to drop, but he also hasn't been extremely productive this season as his 14 homers have only resulted in an OPS of .781.

Chris Davis leaves Monday's game with oblique strain

Chris Davis was removed from Monday's game against the White Sox with a right oblique strain.

Fantasy Impact

Davis flew out to deep right field with the bases loaded to end the top of the third inning and did not return to the field for the bottom of the inning. The fact that the team immediately announced that it was an oblique strain, and not merely side soreness, is not a good sign for Davis' ability to avoid the DL. Davis had struggled this season, but did have 14 home runs. If he misses time, Trey Mancini will likely see an uptick in playing time.

Chris Davis hits 14th home run

Chris Davis went 1-for-3 with a solo home run on Saturday against the Yankees. It was his 14th home run of the season.

Fantasy Impact

Davis is now on pace to finish the season with a .227 batting average and 38 home runs, nearly identical numbers to last season (.221, 38 homers). Unfortunately, he has just 26 RBIs on the season, putting him on pace for just 70. Davis is what he is at this point - a big power, low average first baseman. If he can just manage to drive in some more runs, he should be in line for a fairly typical season.

Chris Davis homers in win

Chris Davis went 2-for-4 with a solo home run in Tuesday's 6-5 win over the Pirates.

Fantasy Impact

Riding a modest seven game hitting streak, Davis hit a timely shot in the seventh inning as the first of back-to-back homers that reduced their deficit to 4-3. The O's would eventually win the game when Jonathan Schoop, the second of the back-to-back, would hit another shot with Davis on base to tie the game in the bottom of the ninth. Davis has had a perfectly Chris-Davis-like year slashing .237/.329/.480 with 13 home runs now to go with 25 RBIs and, of course, 88 strikeouts. The power stroke appears to be warming up with the weather, however, as he's hit three home runs in the past week.

Chris Davis slugs 11th home run in Orioles' victory

Chris Davis went 2-for-4 with a homer, run and three RBIs in the Orioles 10-4 win over the Yankees on Wednesday. Davis hit his 11th home run with a man on in the seventh inning off Yankees' reliever Giovanny Gallegos.

Fantasy Impact

Davis is on pace for another 30-plus home runs season. He finished May with eight home runs, 16 RBIs and a .222 average. Davis and the Orioles begin a weekend series at home against the Red Sox on Thursday night and remains a must-start in all fantasy leagues.
