DH - TEX - IL10
Rangers' DH Khris Davis will start the season on the IL due to a Grade 2 quad strain suffered during Spring Training.
The 33-year-old suffered the injury while trying to leg out a bunt attempt in late March, and it looks as though he will be out until late April or early May. Less than 1% of fantasy managers in ESPN and Yahoo leagues are drafting Davis, so this news is unlikely to present any huge fantasy impact. However, once Davis is healthy, if he can find the power that we are accustomed to seeing, he might be worth a late waiver pickup.
Khris Davis will be out 3-4 weeks with a grade 2 quad strain.
The Rangers are currently deciding on a right handed bat to replace Davis on the Opening Day roster. With Willie Calhoun likely starting the year on the IL, it is unclear who will serve as the Rangers' DH to start the season. Davis isn't being selected in most leagues, as many think his best days are behind him. He's 33 years old, so there's still a chance some of the power he's known for is still there. He's worth monitoring throughout the season as a potential waiver pickup, but isn't worth drafting in most leagues right now.
Khris Davis exited the Rangers' game on Tuesday with an apparent leg injury.
It looked like Davis pulled something near the first base bag while trying to leg out a bunt. He was immediately taken back to the training room. There has been no official word from the team yet, so we'll be sure to monitor the reports as they come out.
Khris Davis exited left Monday’s contest against the Rockies after getting hit in the helmet with a fastball.
After a scary moment, Davis got up and was able to walk away escaping a major injury. He left the game and was “seemingly ok.” The 33-year-old isn’t expected to be out long and should be fine by Opening Day. Davis will be the Rangers primary DH while Willie Calhoun (groin) remains sidelined.
The Oakland Athletics traded designated hitter Khris Davis to the Texas Rangers in exchange for Elvis Andrus. Two veteran players swapped teams within the American League West.
There's no way to slice it, but Khris Davis stunk in 2020 with two home runs, nine runs, and ten RBI with a .200 batting average. It appears that his oblique injury from 2019 likely negatively impacted him and his swing. Before 2019, Davis recorded a .247 batting average in four straight seasons with three seasons where he smacked 40 plus home runs. Over the past month, Davis has an NFBC ADP near pick 500. If he gets back to his former power-hitting form, he's a great value based on his ADP.
