Latest Update Davis hits game-winning homer Friday Sat Jul, 26, 06:12 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.
Davis is now slashing .241/.333/483 with two home runs since returning from the All-Star break, having registered a hit in five of his first seven games of the second half. Although he has been floating around the Mendoza-line (.203 BA) for much of the season, Davis' power is still something that should be in everyday lineups, although that has taken a drastic hit considering he has just 17 home runs up to this point, after a 53 home run finish a year ago.

Chris Davis appears to be experiencing a slight power surge as he has homered in two of his last three games and three of his last eight while extending his current hit streak to three games, which may not seem like much but seeing as Davis was hitting just .197 before the streak started fantasy owners will find this insight a little bit comforting as they hope Crush fulfills their hopes and dreams that he will be a second-half breakout player.Analyst: Michael Pichan
Davis still continues to struggle at the plate, despite belting his 15th home run of the season Sunday, as he is hitting just .182 (4-for-22, 2 HR) over his last six games and .143 (13-for-91, 5 HR) over his last 26 games. Hopefully the recent power surge, and upcoming days off, will help Davis find his stroke going forward.Analyst: Michael Pichan
While no one here believed Davis would ever repeat last season's power totals, few thought the season would be this bad for him. Now sure, 14 home runs and 44 RBI are great numbers to add to your team's offense, but the come saddled with a .201 average and 97 strikeouts; numbers certainly not worthy of a first-round draft selection. Power can be streaky, so he could go off in the second half for another 20 homers, but be sure you have at least a guy or two specifically with a high batting average to help counter the mess Davis' average will make.Analyst: Howard Bender
