DH - OAK
Kris Davis went 2-for-3 with a solo homer, two runs scored, two RBI, and a walk in Monday’s 11-1 route of the Mariners.
Davis has struggled through his first seven games going 3-for-24 slashing .125/.250/.250 with one home run, two RBI, three walks, and ten strikeouts. Davis is capable of piling up home runs in bunches, so he is worth keeping an eye on to see if he can get going.
Khris Davis went 0-for-4 with two strikeouts in Monday's win against the Angels.
It's been a rough start to the year for Davis as he has yet to record hit in 11 at-bats and has five strikeouts in three games. A's fans and fantasy owners have grown accustomed to his high strikeout rate, but normally there are a few home runs mixed in between. Given that the slugger has stumbled out of the gate and is coming off his worst season in Oakland in regards to hits, home runs, and RBIs, it might be wise to start looking at other DH options in your lineup. Davis is currently owned in 76% of Yahoo and 79% of ESPN leagues.

Davis has been hampered by a minor calf issue to start the spring. He'll make his debut with over a month before the start of the regular season, so the calf injury is unlikely to affect his readiness.
