Fantasy Impact: Davis will turn 29 years old prior to the start of this season and is coming off a three straight disappointing seasons following his 32 home run season in 2012 with the Mets. This is a nice buy-low move by the Rangers. Davis will look to earn a spot on the opening day roster and likely start the season as a left-handed bat off the bench and backup first basemen and DH.

Fantasy Impact: Despite previous success, Davis wasn't fantasy-relevant this season. The veteran struggled to a .652 OPS in 74 games this year.

In Oakland's 5-4 loss to Houston on Thursday, Ike Davis went 1-for-3 with a run batted in, a walk and one strikeout.

Fantasy Impact: Not much can be made of any of Davis' recent performances, but if you're truly in desperate need for a starting first baseman or utility option in an extremely deep fantasy league you're in, give him a look.

In Oakland's 3-1 loss to Cleveland, Ike Davis went 0-for-4 with a strikeout.

Fantasy Impact: Davis' abysmal season continues. He cannot be trusted even in the deepest of fantasy leagues.

Ike Davis put together a very productive night at the plate with a 2-for-2 effort. He hit two singles and drew one walk, but was unable to knock in any runs or score any himself. He was eventually pinch hit for by Josh Phegley.

Fantasy Impact: Ike Davis has only hit .172 with a .294 OBP so far in July. While he was productive back in April, he has regressed since returning from injury and now only holds value in the deepest leagues.

Ike Davis finished up his night at 2-for-4 with one single and one double. He was unable to make it around and score, but he did managed to drive in one run.

Fantasy Impact: Davis has seriously struggled since returning from injury. His batting average has dropped from .282 all the way down to .255 and his OPS for July is currently sitting at a dismal .492. Prior to injury he looked like a serviceable first baseman, but it looks like it is time to abandon ship for any fantasy owners that have not already.

Ike Davis finished up at 1-for-3 from the plate with one double and one walk. Unfortunately, he was unable to drive in any runs or score any himself.

Fantasy Impact: Davis has been rather mediocre in his first seven games back since missing a little over a month's worth of games due to injury. He has recorded exactly one hit in five of seven games (two for extra bases) and only reached base multiple times in two games. It will take him a little bit longer to get fully back in the groove of things but in the meantime he is still worth a roster spot in league play.

Fantasy Impact: Davis had been having a fairly productive season and was providing great value to owners who drafted him late or picked him up in free agency. The unproven Max Muncy will start in Davis' absence.

Ike Davis went 2-for-3 with a solo-HR and a RBI double against the Twins on Thursday. Davis also walked once in the game.

Fantasy Impact: It was the first multi-hit game for Davis since April 22nd, and the homer is only his second of the year, the other coming back on April 17th. Davis has been making up for his relative lack of pop with a good batting average, currently at .287. Fantasy owners are getting nice value for where they likely took Davis, and should keep him active in AL-Only and deeper mixed leagues.

Ike Davis continued his hot streak with a 3-5 night for Oakland. Unfortunately, all of his hits were singles and only produced one RBI, but that still provides plenty of value for his fantasy owners.

Fantasy Impact: Ike Davis has been a very pleasant surprise for Oakland fans and everyone who picked him up late in their draft or as a free agent. He is currently hitting .348 with a .415 OBP (.242 and .337 for his career), so hopefully he can keep it up and continue to provide early round production for everyone.

Ike Davis went 1-3 on the night, with a single, a walk, and one strikeout. Unfortunately, Davis was unable to score as Oakland's offense was only able to produce one run on a total of eight base runners.

Fantasy Impact: While Ike Davis is now a measly 1-6 on the young season, his one base percentage is sitting at .444, courtesy of his three walks. Unfortunately, catcher Jon Vogt is the only player behind Davis in the lineup right now who can actually hit, so Davis may find himself stranded on base more often than fantasy owners would like.

Ike Davis went 2-for-3 with a single and a 2-run HR against the Brewers. He also struckout once.

Fantasy Impact: Ike Davis is likely going to platoon with Billy Butler for the Athletics which has cut off much of his fantasy value, but seeing him getting his power swing going is encouraging nonetheless. The power for Davis is real, but the batting average has been subpar for him, and until that changes he is tough to count on for fantasy owners. Draft him as a late round/1$ flier in AL-Only leagues with some upside if his playing time overtakes Butler's.

Fantasy Impact: This isn't a major concern as Davis should be ready to rock for opening day. Davis is nothing more than a reserve first baseman at this point but is worth monitoring just in case he finds the switch to the American League agreeable this season.
