Latest Update Davis blasts 21st homer Monday Tue Aug, 12, 12:35 AM
Has mammoth power to all fields and the ability to drive in a lot of runs. Can play a sound first base. Doesn't get intimidated when facing left-handed pitching.
Flaws: : At times, he swings at everything, showing little plate discipline and striking out at prolific rates. Also, he doesn't have a lot of speed so he clogs up the bases.
Although Davis was not in the starting lineup, he managed to work his way into the ball game and make the best of the situation. Sitting on a .197 average with 21 home runs, Davis clearly isn't gong to liv eup to his first-round status, but if he heats up down the stretch there is still a chance he reaches 30 home runs by season end so he should remain in starting lineups in all but the shallowest of fantasy formats as long as you can absorb his batting average staying around the Mendoza line.

The Orioles will give Davis the night off on Monday, moving Steve Pearce to first base and sliding Delmon Young into a starting spot in the outfield. Although Davis has hit 20 home runs this season, he is slashing just .193/.299/.395 through 352 at-bats this season. Expect him back in the starting lineup when the Orioles match up against right-hander Shane Greene on Tuesday.Analyst: Matthew Beck
It took Davis until June 2 to reach 20 home runs a season ago, which is more than two months earlier that when he reached that plateau in 2014. Although 20 home runs is a nice accomplishment for most players, it is rather disappointing coming from a player that registered 53 a season ago. On top of that he is now hitting below the Mendoza Line (.198 BA), as he continues to be one of the biggest busts this season. Analyst: Matthew Beck
In your best David Caruso voice say it with me.... Well Don, it looks as if Chris Davis is "crushing" it. Indeed he is, as Wednesday's home run was his second in as many games while he extended his current hit streak to three games after going hitless in his 15 previous at-bats.Analyst: Michael Pichan
